When Jeffers broke through into the Everton first team he quickly established himself as one of England’s top prospects.

Unfortunately, a bad career move to Arsenal, numerous injuries and failure to recapture his form at Everton resulted in a career that failed to live up to early expectations.

Jeffers had always kept a stong affinity with his boyhood club and went back there a number of times when in between clubs to keep his fitness levels up.

When he officially retired from playing Jeffers returned to Everton to coach various age groups within their academy on a voluntary basis and working towards completing his coaching badges.

In October 2016, Francis Jeffers was appointed as a striker specific youth coach at Everton’s academy teaching and mentoring attack-minded players progressing through the club’s respected youth setup
