Jón F'achh is a Craitish former-footballer who last played for Xäiville Teflons FC, with whom he spent his entire professional career. A central midfielder capable of playing box-to-box, F'achh is the most prominent ethnic Kej footballer, gaining 24 caps internationally and being the scorer of Craitland's first ever goal. He is a member of Craitland's "Golden Generation".

Career

Club

F'achh started his professional career in 2003, ahead of the first season of CrFA League 1, by signing for Xäiville Teflons FC at the age of 23. F'achh was handed the club's number 8 jersey, which he wore his entire career, and was also announced team captain. In what were notably poor seasons for the Teflons, F'achh was somewhat of a standout player, performing well against all opposition. As perennial underachievers, the team's best league performance prior to the 2008 season was a fifth-placed finish in 2005, while a King's Cup final appearance in 2007 signified notable progression, with F'achh scoring in the semi-final victory over Róndlinga Diamonds FC. The signing of Riponian striker Alex Kiker added more prolific goalscoring for the 2008 season, with F'achh an important factor in the team's then-highest finish of fourth.

F'achh continued to act as the Teflons' catalyst into 2009, with the league expanded to eight teams, but couldn't help them avoid finishing seventh. An improved sixth-placed finish in 2010 saw F'achh and Tellian Frederico Diamo combine in the centre of the field, while the team could only finish seventh again the following year, with the amount of fixtures doubled, leading to an amount of rotation between F'achh and Antoine Bodmer. The Teflons returned to sixth the next season, finishing above defending champions Cherry Trees FC, with F'achh's playmaking assisting Ben Viĵoa to tally 16 goals, before moving up to fifth in 2013. At the age of 33, with his first-team involvement diminished, F'achh retired at the end of the 2013 season; one year before the Teflons' first ever trophy win.

International

F'achh received his first call-up for the Craitish national team in 2006, being included in the squad for the first edition of the FMF World Cup. Although initially tipped to be used as a substitute, F'achh started the team's first ever match against New-Empire and opened the scoring after three minutes; making history as Craitland's first goal, to help them on their way to a 2–1 win. F'achh was involved in the team's other group matches in the tournament, but was sent-off against New Brittania, as they reached the quarter-finals before losing on penalties to Nova England, with F'achh suspended. F'achh's place in the national setup was established as a capable and versatile deputy from 2007 onward, with his reliability earning him consistent call-ups. While he was left-out of the experimental EMU 2007 squad, he was a fixture in the victorious World Cup rosters in 2007, 2008 and 2010, and also the EMU 2009 and 2009 World Cup, where the team finished second and third, respectively. F'achh remained being utilised internationally up until 2012 but failed to reach any further tournament finals squads, with Hänä Zensen seemingly assuming his mantle in midfield, despite joining-in summer training. F'achh retired from the sport completely in 2013, having never announced a separate international retirement, and finished his career with 24 Craitland caps and four goals to his name.
