We believe that football is the most powerful tool in the world for inspiring young people to achieve their goals
Julie Thomas: Chairperson
I have been involved with Lewisham Lionhearts FC for six years, with a lot of those early years running the lines.
Since that day in May 2013, where Simon Allen handed me the “keys” I can still say that I am enjoying my time as Chairman/Club Secretary.
This is certainly not a solo affair and things could not have worked so well without the support of the Committee. Working alongside John Richardson, Club Treasurer and
Beryl Suter, FA Welfare Officer
we have made a few changes and decisions that will benefit the club.
The overall aim is to ensure that we continue to work hard to keep on delivering the club's overall vision as set out in the early years. It is to be an inclusive club for all players and abilities, keeping costs affordable.
I have the responsibility of overseeing the running of the football club and manage this by:
sourcing different funding and sponsorship opportunities;
accountable to club members for expenditure;
promotion of the club within the local area, investigate new tournaments for players;
ensure coaching staff have all the necessary resources and equipment available to enable them to deliver a professional service to their players;
find suitable courses for coaches to attend to aid their professional development around football
The above is a summary of what i am involved in. It is hard work but rewarding.
If anyone has any ideas, thoughts or comments about the club we would love to hear from you.
