The Directors are delighted to announce with immediate effect the following appointments:
Mark Edgar has been appointed as league secretary for U7-U11, the non-competitive age groups of the BBDFL
Warren Barlow has agreed to be the league secretary of the competitive age groups, U12-U21. Warren will also be the General Secretary for the BBDFL
In reviewing our progress as a league and listening to our member clubs, the Directors believe that the league needs to get closer to coaches & teams to provide a better all-round service for our members, volunteers, players, parents and other stakeholders.
Traditionally we have had one big committee that oversees the entire league operation meaning that all age groups have been represented at the same meetings. It is our view that the most effective conversations happen between groups that have a common interest and therefore we will now have two dedicated teams focused on the different segments of development football under the BBDFL, non-competitive and competitive.
Both Mark and Warren will be building their teams in the coming weeks with further announcements to follow in due course.
