We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Coach Karen Bowles as Maidenbower Colts FC’s Girls Football Lead. Karen is the Lead Coach of our U12 Girls Squad, one of our first two all girls teams at Colts.
Since Karen joined Colts FC earlier this year her enthusiasm and energy for the establishment of our first ever all girls teams has been incredible, making her the perfect choice to lead and inspire young female footballers on their football journey. This appointment marks a significant step in our commitment to fostering gender equality and providing equal opportunities for girls in grassroots football and beyond.
In her role as Girls Football Lead, Karen will play a pivotal role in driving the growth and development of our football club’s girls section. By leveraging her experience and passion, she will create a nurturing and empowering environment that encourages more girls to actively participate in football.
Club Chairman, Richie Coleman said:
“Representation matters, especially at the grassroots level, as it serves as the foundation for a lifelong passion for football and for sports. This will be our first season with 2 incredible all girl’s teams and we want to take that momentum and build upon it. Karen’s leadership will not only provide essential guidance to aspiring female footballers at the club but also contribute to the expansion of our girls’ footballs section. We firmly believe that through her efforts, we will not only cultivate a stronger sense of community within our club but also inspire a new generation of female footballers to excel both on and off the field. Her appointment signifies a transformative shift towards a more diverse and inclusive community, and we are excited to witness the positive impact it will have on the growth and success of our girls’ football section.”
Girls Football Lead, Karen said:
“I’m delighted to take up this new role with Maidenbower Colts FC, and work with such a supportive club to promote gender equality in football.”
“With the ongoing success of England’s Lionesses and the ever-growing interest in the women’s game, it’s more important than ever that we provide a safe and supportive space for girls to enjoy the sport. I’m looking forward to finding new ways to inspire more girls to get into football and more women to take up coaching roles.”
