It is with regret that the F.A. has with immediate effect accepted the resignation of Technical Director, Katie Rowson, who has been with the Association for the last 12 months.

Rowson tendered her resignation on Friday 22nd January, 2016, to the President Mr. Andy Bickerton.

“Whilst disappointed Coach Katie is leaving the F.A. I would like to thank her for her contribution to the development of Football in the Territory and especially for working towards improvements in our Women’s Programmes.” Commented Bickerton “The F.A wishes her all the best in her future endeavour”.

Rowson has been offered an opportunity to take up the post of Head Coach & Manager of Watford Ladies, who play in the English FA Women’s Super League (WSL) second tier.

“This is a huge step in my career and I have worked to achieve this level over the last 18 years and I am delighted to take this opportunity.” She stated “It will be extremely hard to say goodbye to so many people that I have met, worked with, lent on for support and the amazing people that I can now class as friends and family.”

Whilst the F.A. begins the process of finding a replacement Technical Director there will be no disruption to either the Digicel Centre of Excellence, the After School Programme or plans for participation in Representative Youth Tournaments, with existing full time staff Coaches continuing the advancements made over the last season.
