Sport Newcastle Fund Female Coach Success

Funding provided by Sport Newcastle has supported Newcastle United Foundation’s development of a successful Mentoring Programme for young, female football coaches.

The funds helped to support the recruitment and development of young female coaches with the aim of inspiring the next generation of women and girl footballers.

The Foundation’s Female Mentoring Programme gives the opportunity for young women identified as having potential to be a great coach to work alongside our senior full time coaches to gain experience in schools delivering on a variety of projects.

Newcastle United Foundation has successfully mentored and trained five new female football coaches from the most recent funding provided by Sport Newcastle, with 10 females having gone through the process over the last two years.

The impact of our new mentored coaches is already being felt across our programmes. Codie Nichols, the Foundation’s first apprentice coach who is now in full time employment as a Community Coach, and Zoe Hornby, the Foundation’s current Apprentice Community Coach at Newcastle United Foundation, both came through our Female Mentoring Programme and as well as committing to their own personal development they have proactively started implementing new innovative processes to address issues like bad behaviour in classes they engage with.

Lisa Bell, Women and Girls Football Senior Project Coordinator at Newcastle United Foundation said: “We are so grateful for the support of Sport Newcastle. It’s allowed us to employ more female coaches and we’ve unearthed some incredibly talented members of staff as a result.

“It’s really important that we are proactive in recruiting and training female coaches so we are able to establish a quality pathway for young women interested in a career in coaching.

“Zoe and Codie’s contribution to our programmes so far has been amazing and we’re looking forward to attracting more aspiring, high calibre young coaches in the future.”
