Following a recent review, BAFA has decided to restructure the organisation of the Great Britain U17 and U19 teams. This will enable us to place greater focus on the individual age groups, and build a better and bolder programme to be successful on the international stage.

As part of this restructure, we have decided to part ways with previous Head Coach Neale McMaster, effective as of 22 November.

I would like to thank Neale for everything he has done for the National Programme to date and wish him well for the future.

To continue the progress of both teams in the short-term, Damon Kirby has been appointed to the role of interim U17 Head Coach, and Scott Rowe to role of interim U19 Head Coach.

An open recruitment process will take place in the new year for both positions.
