  • Sergei now helps coach his son's team at Wallington Wanderers in Sutton, South London as well as his role at Charlton, in charge of their u18 squad.

  • Returning to Charlton as an Academy coach

  • Baltacha has joined the academy staff at Charlton Athletic for the second time as clubs across England seek to meet the requirements of the Premier League’s Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP).

  • Elena Baltacha, Sergie`s daughter, is close to regaining the British number one spot after reaching the quarter-finals of the Dunlop World Challenge in Japan.

  • After taking up his coaching role at the Charlton Academy, I believe he still works as a PE teacher at a college in South London. His son, also named Sergei, used to play for St. Mirren in Scotland.

  • he was born not in KIEV, but in MARIUPOL

  • Place of Birth Kiev Ukraine

    I went to bacons college the school which he works in now, and he taught me PE. I remember when we nagged him to bring his tape in off the goal, just thought it would be a tap in. Very nice bloke and an honour to be round not just a world cup player but a world cup scorer. He is not an arrogant man very down to earth and i repect him alot (even though i might never of showed it, i might of been a bit of a handful. Thats him but his family shows that he is not just a football man. Wife was an athlete son footballer aswell and daughter britain number 2 tennis player. ( and i wanted to play tennis with him hahaha that was before i knew about his daghuter ofcourse) I aint got a bad word to say about him.

  • Now attends Bacon`s Technical College in London as A Physical Education Teacher

  • Sergeis debut in the 5-1 mauling of Stoke, in which he also scored, at Portman Road was also my wifes first ever visit to the hallowed turf. The Ukrainian failed to impress after that, although then manager John Duncan never did play him in the position that had brought him international acclaim.
