Core Sports are delighted to announce our new Women’s Football Department focused on developing the UK’s brightest female footballing talent.
We have an outstanding reputation for supporting young and senior players to take their development to the elite level and have set the foundations to do this in the female game.
Taking the lead approach with Core Sports is our new Head of Women’s Football Krissie Glover who will play an influential role in the delivery of the Women’s Football Strategy by managing the collaborative efforts of cross functional teams and recruitment worldwide. Delivering core services for our athletes and their families.
We heard from Core Sports Senior Director Phil Ridgewell today;
‘Core Sports promotes the development of women’s football and pledges to support women’s football at all levels, the passion for and potential of the sport offers vast untapped opportunities.
The launch of the Women’s Football Department will work with all stakeholders to take steps to empower girls and women to perform at the highest level, make football a sport for all and advocate against gender discrimination.
We have a solid foundation, but like anything, we’ll have to grow and build to become something bigger and better. We are all excited for the future of women’s football here at Core Sports’
Krissie made her Millwall Lionesses first team debut in goal at the age of 13.
She holds the record for the youngest GK to ever play for Millwall Lionesses and went onto make over 200 appearances for the club winning and receiving a number of accolades along the way.
Krissie was also lucky enough to be part of England School Girls from the age of 14.
Krissie has always been a fantastic advocate for the women’s game and is very excited to see the excellent developments currently taking place.
Krissie has also gone on to complete a Ba (Hons), Ma and MPhil in History and now combines her passion for supporting the women’s game with running a leading sports and educational tutoring company both in the UK and overseas.
‘This is a very exciting time for women’s football and I am very happy to be part of the Core Group and in particular the Core Sports project.
Our main aim is too of course support our players with their footballing career but one of the most exciting things for me is the passion the Core Group have in helping our players away from the pitch. This will be a across a number of platforms but a key thing for me will be supporting our players with their long term career plans during and after their careers.’
