Hannah Humphreys, 19, who is a member of our Youth Working Committee, has been appointed to be part of The FA National Youth Council for the 2018/19 season.
The FA National Youth Council is made up of a group of young people between the ages of 16-24 from all over England to represent children and young people and help shape and develop football in the country.
Hannah applied to be part of the National Youth Council following her journey through various Leadership Academies over the past few years and her role will consist of representing and supporting Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, London and Kent on a national scale.
The vision is to provide a voice for all children and young people in the game to influence change and develop a lasting legacy in football.
Hannah studies a degree in Football Coaching and Performance at Chichester University whilst coaching a range of elite level girls’ teams across Sussex and also regularly delivers FA Futsal workshops.
Previous to moving to Sussex for her University studies, she was a member of the Essex FA Youth Council as the Women and Girls lead where she spent two years before transferring to the Sussex County FA Youth Working Committee in which she is in her second season.
On her appointment, she said: “I’m extremely excited to be part of the National Youth Council team this year and I am looking forward to engaging with various County FAs across the country to help develop other talented young leaders!
“By sharing my own experiences of leadership within football, and combining those with other members of the National Youth Council, we aim to motivate the next generation of young people within football and ensure everyone has a pathway relevant to their interests within the game.”
