Club Secretary – Steve Barlett

We announced at the Club’s annual awards in June that Steve was to focus on his role as Club Development Officer.  

For over 10 years as the Club Secretary, Steve is now relinquishing this role. Steve has been incredibly helpful in undertaking both Club Development Officer and Club Secretary roles for a number of months but it’s now time for Steve to move on and focus on being the Club Development Officer. So, with immediate effect Steve is stepping down as Club Secretary.  

 Everyone at the Club, past and present thanks Steve for his time and effort in helping to keep the club running, and for all of his support to team Managers, Coaches and Committee members throughout the seasons.  

 To reiterate, Steve will still be part of the club but with a focus on helping us develop our Club, coaching and players.

New Club Secretary required

We are very keen for a Parent, Guardian or Carer to volunteer their time to be the new Club Secretary.  There is no option for the Club not to have Club Secretary.  Without one we can’t operate as a football club within the FA club criteria.  Attached is the role description.  The essential part of the role is to be the go-to person for the football leagues and FA.  There are 2/3 annual key meetings the secretary will need to attend.

The primary role of the Club Secretary is to act as administrative officer for the club and to be the first point of contact for all correspondence.  Aside from typical administration duties the Club Secretary will represent the club at appropriate external meetings for example Berks & Bucks FA meetings and team league meetings.

No previous football club experience is required but the ideal candidate will need the following capabilities and skills

  • Enthusiastic and approachable
  • Good communication skills
  • Good organisational skills and ability to work to deadlines
  • Access to telephone (mobile) and computer (e-mail and internet) is necessary
  • Working knowledge of the internet, e-mail and Microsoft Office products

We ask that candidates interested in the role contact Steve Dawson ( / 07801812558) by Monday 23rd November 2015.

Thank you.
