Trust welcomes new Women and Girls Development Officer

The Bromley Football Club Community Sports Trust is delighted to welcome Andrea Ellis as Development Officer for Women and Girls.

Andrea joins us having spent the last ten years as a Primary teacher, as well as leading Primary PE provision. As a qualified football coach, she has led the Wildcats provision at Bromley FC since it started in 2020. Andrea has also promoted women’s recreational football by founding the Bromley Belles. The Belles are a team for women aged over 30, who would like to play football in a fun and safe environment, regardless of age or ability.

Andrea’s appointment is made possible by the support of the National League Trust, who have also supported many of our projects in previous years and enabled us to grow our provisions significantly. We are extremely proud to have become one of the first Clubs in Kent to have recruited a full-time Women & Girls’ Development Officer, and our thanks also goes to the Kent FA for their guidance during this process.

On joining the team at Hayes Lane, Andrea said: “Having founded Bromley Belles back in 2018 and leading the Wildcats provision, I am excited to join the Bromley Football Club Community Sports Trust. It’s a fantastic opportunity to further promote football for Women and Girls, and speaks volumes for the Community Trust’s vision to offer football to a wider audience.”

Director of Charity and Community Jeff Hutton added: “Bringing Andrea on board is a big step forward for the Community Trust. Her passion for Women and Girls’ football, showcased by her fantastic volunteer work with the Bromley Belles and the leading of our Girls’ Wildcats Centre, is second to none. I’m delighted that she can now come into our team on a full-time basis to further the impact of the Trust’s work.”

Everybody at Bromley Football Club and the Community Sports Trust would like to welcome Andrea on board!
