"Richard spoke highly of the club and the support they provide to the women’s section. There are some brilliant individuals at the club, and I am eager to learn from them.
I believe I can bring a wealth of knowledge to the squad, I enjoy getting involved in coaching and witnessing players develop on and off the pitch. My role will be to support Richard, the staff, and players in any way possible.
I know the squad truly values the support of the fans, and I am excited to get down to Foundation Park and meet everyone. COYR."
