Women’s Football Development Officer (Apprentice)

Email: Amy.Newbold@shropshirefa.com
Phone: 07719 069876

I will predominantly be working at both Telford and Shrewsbury College with their female students aged 16-19 looking to increase participation rates across the colleges and how to integrate these students into local grassroots football through coaching, refereeing or playing pathways. I also aim to work with other colleges and sixth forms in Shropshire during the academic year to encourage and support female students to get involved in football, which hopefully will help to reduce the dropout rate for participants at this age.
