Cornwall FA wish Vicky well with new venture as FA Women and Girls Coach Development Officer (South West).
Cornwall FA warmly welcomed Vicky Fisher to the development team in April 2018 as Women, Girls and Disability Officer. Since arriving, Vicky has made great strides in helping to support and develop the opportunities available for female and disability players across Cornwall. Creating strong relationships with volunteers across the county has allowed Vicky to support and provide guidance to help introduce new opportunities for players including supporting clubs and leagues with the introduction of new teams.
Wildcats is another programme Vicky has championed within Cornwall. Over the course of 3 years, Vicky has helped develop and introduce 28 Wildcats providers. The impact of Vicky’s work has helped ensure longevity within the women’s game with the girls aged 5 to 11 years attending the Wildcats sessions being encouraged to transition into the club teams available within the great opportunities the Cornwall Girls Football League provide.
Vicky has now been offered and accepted an opportunity to work for The FA as Women’s and Girls’ Coach Development Officer - South-West. This role involves supporting coaches within the women and girl’s games across the Southwest, covering 7 different County FA's.
Vicky has expressed how she is excited about starting the new role in the coming months, “It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to do a job that I love within my home county. However, I am excited to continue to be able to work within an area of the game I am passionate about and working for The FA has always been an aspiration of mine. Thank you to all of the clubs, leagues and volunteers that I have worked with over the past 3 years, it's been fantastic to see the growth and development of the game and I look forward to supporting this in the future through my new role.”
Dawn Aberdeen (Cornwall FA’s Chief Executive Officer) added, “Vicky has been a real motivational member of our small Cornwall FA team over the last 3 years and the impact she has been able to make is inspirational. She is a positive and caring individual who prioritises the best interest of those she is working with, and the support Vicky has been able to provide to numerous individuals, clubs and leagues across Cornwall is a clear example of this. Vicky will be sincerely missed; however, we are delighted that her new role will provide opportunities to further develop the women and girls game on an even bigger scale. We truly wish Vicky every success with her new position, and we look forward to seeing her at future CPD and FA events”.
