Fairford and Lechlade YFC coach and Club Development Officer, Alan Stratford, is celebrating the completion of his FA Level 2 coaching qualification.

Alan has been part of the set-up at FLYFC for three seasons, this season coaching the Under 9s team and has recently taken on the role of Club Development Officer.
“The course was fantastic” said Alan. “It was hard work but the support from the Wiltshire FA has been fantastic and I’m really looking forward to being able to put the qualification to good use, not only for myself, but also to help the other coaches at the Club.”

As Club Development Officer, Alan will be working to support the Club’s new coaches with their first coaching badges, as well as helping those with existing qualifications continue their development. “I’m really looking forward to the new role” he noted. “We’ve got a couple of coaching vacancies at the moment within the Club, hopefully if people know the Club will support them to get their footballing qualifications it’ll encourage them to get involved with the Club.”
