Basingstoke Town Ladies Football Club are the most successful women’s football club in North Hampshire and are seeking a new coaching and management team for our first team for the upcoming 2017-2018 season.
The first team have progressed well over the past few seasons: in the 2014-2015 season the team won the Southern Region Premier Division Chairman’s Cup, and last season the team reached the final of the Hampshire Challenge Cup and won the Southern Region Premier Division League.
We are looking for ambitious coaches and managers to work with our talented players who have been newly promoted this season into the FA Women’s Premier League South West Division One, and we as a team are committed to improving and strengthening our game. The new management and coaching team should continue to progress the standard of first team football and maintain development of our reserve team to coincide with sustaining a supportive ambience within the club. Most importantly however we are looking for applicants who will be committed, driven and passionate about creating an environment where our players can excel in both a team and as individuals.
Our management and coaching team will be backed by a dedicated committee made up of players and volunteers, who take on much of the administrative workload leaving the coaches/managers to focus on training, team selection and tactics.
We welcome applications from candidates who would like to be considered as coaches or managers, and we also welcome applications from seasoned coach-manager partnerships. Applicants will need to have experience of coaching/managing a successful football team and a Level One FA Coaching badge as a minimum, but higher coaching badges and qualifications are preferred.
Training sessions are currently held every Wednesday evening in Basingstoke with matches being played on Sunday afternoons. Whilst home matches are played in Basingstoke, away games are played throughout the South West of England depending on the teams in the league.
Whilst this role is voluntary it is an exciting opportunity to take Basingstoke Town Ladies Football Club to the next level of women’s football, and if you believe that you can help us achieve our ambitions we would like to hear from you. Please apply with a covering letter and football CV to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Annaliese Watson on 07725720938.
