Former Indian International Vinu Jose kicked off his career as a coach by winning 2 out of 2 for the Town Football Club Pathanapuram. The 29 year old who is waiting to enrol in a coaching license course took charge of the club 2 weeks ago and was successful in leading his team to a good start in the Kollam Football League.
In his first match in charge, TFC defeated SAI Kollam 2-1 with the help of a brace from Vinod on 17th January, 2010. In his second match, TFC came up with a 5-3 win over TKM College.
