Azhar Yaqub-Khan


After playing everywhere from 'keeper to striker in the 3rd XI, Azhar replaced Theo Gordon as captain in the 2013/14 season. Many lengthy, rousing, tactical emails followed which, over the course of 2/3 months, developed into an impressive hardcore of players who socialised together after matches. A successful season saw striker Alex Smith become the top Club goalscorer and Khan was instrumental in organising the first 3s team dinner since the side's reformation in 2006/7.

Azhar's enthusiasm is perhaps his greatest asset. Having said that, he has drastically improved his football over recent seasons and is now a mainstay in the 2nd XI. Whether at fullback or in midfield, his emphasis is on executing simple passes, retaining possession and working hard for his teammates.

Azhar set up the OHAFC Facebook group in August 2013 and did a stint as Hon. Recruitment Secretary in May 2014. He was elected 2nd XI Vice Captain for the 2015/16 season, and Club Social Sec. in the 2016/17 season.
