At the Barclays Girls' Football School Partnerships Conference last week, Dean was recognised for the huge impact he has had on girls' football in Oxfordshire over the last 12 months where he was awarded the 'Outstanding use of collaboration to drive change' accolade.
With a little bit of help from the girls at Chesterton Primary School, Deans nomination video clearly demonstrates the difference that is already been made in North Oxfordshire, and Oxfordshire as a whole, in relation to girls football!
In collaboration with Barclays and The Youth Sport Trust, The FA has launched a network of partnerships between itself and schools throughout England.
Formally known as ‘The FA Girls’ Football School Partnerships – supported by Barclays,’ the goal is to build a sustainable infrastructure of schools committed to developing the girls’ game.
The FA’s focus is to help girls become more physically active with improved well-being, increased physical literacy of five to eight year-olds and help all girls develop the confidence and competence to play football at school and in a community setting.
