Sharon takes on new role
 Women's Football News 19 Oct 2007
Sharon takes on new role - 19 Oct 2007 - Women's Football NewsEssex County F.A.'s new Girls' & Women's Development Officer for the London Boroughs, Sharon Brownlie, has immersed herself in her new role by quickly setting-up two Club Development Workshops which will be taking place this November. 
Sharon has stepped across from her previous Club Development role at the County Office to work alongside Emma Wake in dealing with the ever-increasing activity relating to the female game in the County. She will be working solely with the clubs and schools in Essex's London Boroughs of Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham and Waltham Forest.
Her work will look to increase participation in the area by assisting current clubs to expand as well as supporting those male clubs who intend to create girls or women's sections. Other work will include assisting with schools football as well as promoting the 'player pathways' towards Centre of Excellence football for the more gifted and talented players.
Speaking of the months ahead, Brownlie explained: "My initial response was to undertake a mapping exercise of the area to find out what opportunities were currently being offered regarding girls' and women's football. The findings showed some positives but most areas were offering little or no female football. As a result, my main priority will be to get more females playing by developing current girls and women's clubs whilst also helping male youth clubs to create new sections, hence the creation of these two workshops."
One of Sharon's first tasks was the organisation of two Club Development Workshops which have been set-up to introduce both current girls and women's clubs and male youth clubs to the various F.A. initiatives they could get involved with. The Workshops will include an overview of the current provision of women's and girls' football in the Boroughs, how clubs can get involved in the initiatives such as the F.A. School-to-Club Link scheme as well as information on funding, publicity and promotion and the F.A. Charter Standard scheme.
Two workshops have been arranged to ensure clubs are able to attend one local to them. They are free of charge and will take place as follows: Workshop 1 - Redbridge Leisure Centre, Monday 12th November from 7:30&emdash;9:00pm. Workshop 2 - Romford Town Hall, Tuesday 13th November from 7:30pm&emdash;9:00pm.
Sharon added: "We are really looking towards reaching out to clubs to attend these Workshops as they are key to the improvement of opportunities for females in their areas. Grassroots clubs play such a huge part in local communities which is why we want as many of them as possible to join-in and be part of our long-term plans."
Places can be booked on either Workshop by contacting Sharon Brownlie on (01245) 393074 or sharon.brownlie@essexfa.com.
