The highlights of his career includes scoring against Manchester United in 2011 and earning an invitation to the Cameroon national selection.
The veteran full-back who lost his father and grandfather within a space of 12 months, aged 10 has the role to drill the next generation of kids at Maidstone United Academy.
Elokobi has made over 200 appearances in a 18 years amazing football career.
He is enjoying a smooth transition into coaching while playing as part time as he did feature in two games last season.
