Karen Bridgewater – Grassroots Coach of the Year

We are all volunteers at the club and our time is not given for the glory so when one of the team gets an award we can all enjoy the moment. At the Sussex County FA award for 2023 at the Amex, Karen received the “Grassroots Coach of the Year (Female Pathway)” award.

There are times you just sit back and applaud. If you are in any way involved in women and girls football at the club you will know Karen. Karen has driven the womens and girls side of the club from a single youth team to our current position where we have a women’s team, and five league registered girls teams and two other age-groups playing friendlies. We have over one hundred female players. A lot of work from a lot of people has gone into ensuring our club serves the whole community, but everyone involved will acknowledge the importance of Karen.
