Club Secretary Profile
Laura takes on a lot of the behind the scenes work for the team. From booking pitches and registering players, to fundraising, social media and events, Laura does everything she can to make sure the club runs smoothly.
Football has always been a big part of her life – starting when she used to spend her Saturday’s watching her dad play amateur football and she played in the boys primary school team because there wasn’t one for girls! This is her first time being involved in an amateur club but we reckon some of the experience she has from her day job will mean she’ll do alright at it.
When her and Chris started the team they had big ideas on what they wanted to do and now it’s time to see if they can make them a reality!
