A message from the Lancashire FA Lead – Nick Birchall
As a volunteer Coach, active within the grassroots game for nearly twenty years, and having worked at both The FA and Lancashire FA, as a Development Officer and Coach Mentor, I am delighted to be the Executive Lead setting up our first Clubs-focussed Football Advisory Board.
Through this unique, exciting new forum, we will be reaching out to Clubs so that they can directly influence decision-making at all levels of football. By sharing their specific football needs, we can create the right county-wide programmes to suit them. This will enable us to fully support Clubs in Lancashire with both ‘on’ and ‘off’ pitch developments, creating the best environments for football to be enjoyed by all, and to prosper and grow moving forwards.
Who we are looking for:
We are looking to recruit committed individuals with experience across the grassroots game, including the National League Pyramid (Steps 1-6), Youth Football and Saturday and Sunday Adult male grassroots football.
If you have Club experience of either leadership and growth, facility development or funding acquirement, and a keen interest in developing the grassroots football provision in Lancashire, then get in touch to help make a sustainable difference to football in Lancashire. Applications from those currently working, volunteering, or playing within the semi-professional, professional or grassroots game are very welcome.
