HEAD COACH JOB OPPORTUNITY
I'm Trenna Sharpe, Ciara Robinson recommended I reach out to you (we play together at Clapton CFC).
I'm writing to share a football coach job posting, specifically because she mentioned that you have a group of women interested in/actively working on coaching badges. The women and non-binary players development team at Clapton is looking for a head coach. We are hoping to attract an applicant pool that skews away from the traditionally male-dominated demographic in football coaching. We would be so grateful if you could share the posting with your network.
Here's a link to the job posting — feel free to share on social, etc, if it takes your fancy. Thank you!!
I'll add a non-club official note: we know the listed pay for this role, well, sucks. We're doing everything we can to get more funding from the club and to raise our own to amend the pay, but since we don't have cash-in-hand at this very moment, can't promise more than the listed amount for now. But, please feel free to let people know that we know, and are working on it.
Thanks again and hope you're all having a great week!

Another lovely Tuesday 7s game. Captain Flo gave POTM to Anna for reading the game beautifully and slaying the defence. Well done to Maysa on her debut too!
A great session despite the weather. A reminder to only sign up if you can attend, our coaches plan their sessions in advance and late dropouts make it super difficult.
Potw were Kidesh, Emma, Flo and Gaia!
