Staffordshire FA recently welcomed two new members of staff.

Staffordshire FA would like to give a warm welcome to two new members of staff, John Lilburne and Sare Michael who have both recently joined The Association's workforce.

Two new positions have been created in order to provide a more streamline support service to Staffordshire based Clubs and Volunteers.

John Lilburne has been appointed as Clubs and Leagues Support Officer. This new position will see John take the lead on the control of our County Cup Competitions, as well as providing first hand support to all Staffordshire affiliated Clubs and Leagues. John is currently the Fixtures and Referees Secretary at the Stafford and District Football League as well as holding the role of Governance Officer at the Mid Staffs Junior League. The former Goalkeeper at Brocton FC is on hand to provide support to Clubs and Leagues. 

Sare Michael has taken on the role of Workforce Co-Ordinator and will manage the day to day running of all Staffordshire FA's Coach Education courses. Secretary of the biggest youth club in the county, Sare will be the new point of contact for any query in relation to Coach Education courses.
