The Women’s & Girls’ Football Development Officer at

football in the County, I am delighted to be leading on our new Strategy which
will hopefully impact a large number of females across the next three years."
"To support our strategy we have established a working group
made up of 12 individuals across the game, providing them the opportunity to
review and feedback with honesty and personal experiences to ensure that the
strategy delivers on its targets."
"Finally, it’s a fantastic opportunity for use to launch our
Strategy during the most pivotal event in the female calendar in Norfolk. It’s
great to see some of our SSE Wildcats centres in attendance taking part in a
festival before the game and then acting as the team’s mascots."
