FA have appointed a new Community Champion who will support new and existing Weetabix Wildcats centres in providing opportunities for girls to participate in a safe and fun environment.
Mark Hedley will be working closely with Lloyd Miller (Football Development Officer – Women and Girls) at what is an exciting time for Women and Girls football both locally and nationally.
The FA has introduced this new role to support Weetabix Wildcats centres. The role will rely heavily upon Mark’s vast experience of local girls football locally in order to provide contextual support for each individual Wildcats Centre.
Lloyd said: “We’re extremely excited as a County FA to have Mark allocated as our Community Champion. This opportunity to have extra support directed towards our Weetabix Wildcats Centres will help provide sustainability and growth for local girls football. Additionally, it will allow those centres across our vast county to access a blend of face-to-face and online support in sharing best practice, to continually improve the excellent provision already being delivered by local grassroots clubs.”
Mark added: “I’m looking forward to this new challenge, helping Northumberland FA to grow the female pathway in the area.”
