Ken Eaton appointed to new position.

The British American Football Association (BAFA) is pleased to confirm that Ken Eaton has been appointed as Volunteer Coordinator.

Ken will support, coordinate and grow BAFA’s volunteer workforce. Working with the Executive team and Board, Ken will help to ensure the sport has the right people in the right roles, and that volunteers are recognised for their contributions.

Ken moved to the UK from Australia in 2007 and established his own company to support architects and engineers with their documentation. Ken’s experience with American football began in the 1990s and 2000s, playing for the Townsville Cyclones and the Bayside Ravens in Australia. Ken was also able to play against the Arizona and New Mexico College All Star teams while they toured Australia.

Pete Ackerley, BAFA Chief Executive, said:

“Our passionate volunteers are the lifeblood of our sport, which is why this new Volunteer Coordinator role is such an important one.

“As we continue undertaking our exciting governance transformation and working towards our 10-year vision, I’m delighted that Ken has been appointed to support and coordinate our volunteer team.”

Ken Eaton said:

“I am excited to be involved with BAFA and to be able to support all of the volunteers who make this sport possible.”
