MICHAEL ROBSON

I am Michael Robson the Founder of Golden Boot Striker School and I welcome you to our school. I am a football tragic who loves football, who studies football (especially strikers), who coaches football and watches hours and hours of football each week.

Football is a passion, I am lucky enough to share with my family. My three boys all played soccer.

Joshua Jacka

In 2016 Joshua joined Golden Boot Striker School as a player. His effort and dedication to training saw dramatic improvement, culminating in his selection to the under 16 NSW Futsal. Further representative honours were bestowed on Joshua when he was selected to represent Australia in the under 16 Futsal side to tour Brazil. Unfortunately, Joshua sustained a serious knee injury and was unable to tour. Again his dedication to working hard has seen him get over his injury and he is back at Golden Boot as a player and an assistant coach.
