The origin of Creek View Football Club (CVFC) lies in the ultimate vision of dedicated football lovers who came together to encourage young generation to excel with football in the district of Thane. Way back on October 2nd 2009 like minded people began their endeavour by promoting football in Naigaon which is a fast developing Suburb, North of Mumbai. History dates afore the formation of the club where our founder member Mr. Paul Gracian Monteiro, along with few other sports enthusiast decided to take their dream and passions to the next level. Just like every new born child is pre-arranged with a name, the club was also in a predicament of arranging a name for itself. One fine day on obtaining a view of the ”Naigaon Creek and its scenic beauty from his local residence in Naigaon, Mr. Paul Monteiro, decided to form the club with the name ”Creek View Football Club” (CVFC). That’s how the club originated. CVFC started off with a coach and few players in 2009, but slowly and steadily the club began to increase in popularity and its numbers grew. Today we have a total of 4 coaches & 95 aspiring football players registered with the club. This includes the seniors and the junior football players. At present we provide them grass root training, and are fortunate to avail the facility to use Don Bosco school ground at Naigaon. CVFC is purely a Non Profit Organization.
Mr. Paul Monteiro, (age: 64) is the founder member of CVFC. Born to a home of a Middle-class family in the State of Karnataka-Mangalore-INDIA. Since childhood, he had a great passion for sports. His journey began in the field of gymnastics and wrestling, where he was awarded as the Karnataka State level Bodybuilding Champion. Besides gymnastics and wrestling, he also shared an interest in soccer where he participated at school level football tournaments. Over the years his passion grew towards football to an extent that it conceived a desire of training and encouraging young footballers to excel in this field. After relocating to Bombay (now known as Mumbai) he began observing the sport even more closely. By watching professional matches he began encouraging youngsters to take up this sport. Once the desire was conceived it gave birth to a dream of having a Football Academy, where he could not only encourage, but train young footballers so that one day they can participate at professional level soccer tournaments. His dream bore fruits when he relocated to Naigaon which is a Suburb in North of Mumbai where he decided to start a Football club. It was not an easy decision for him taking an early exit from his professional work as a welder at Mazgaon Dock Ltd (Subcontractor) Mumbai, so that he can dedicate his complete attention towards his passion, and the dream of taking football to its greatest heights in Mumbai. Currently Mr. Paul Monteiro is the President/Head Coach of Creek View Football Club and also a coach at Don Bosco High School Naigaon.
