Coaching Staff

Prior to working for BFCitC, Becky worked for Leeds United FC Regional Talent Centre alongside the Female Football Department for 3 years. 

Becky studied at Leeds Beckett University receiving a first class honours in Sports Coaching which then lead on to her completing a Masters degree. Becky’s other qualifications include UEFA B level 3 football coaching & FA Youth Award. 

Becky has a wealth of experience in coaching females, spanning across all three phases of the game (Foundation, youth development and now performance phase). Becky believes it is an exciting time to be a part of the women’s game due to its development and growth.

One of Becky’s finest achievements in coaching to date is managing our 2018/19 Burnley FC Women U16 team where they reached the Lancashire FC Cup final.

Chanelle’s career focus has been working within women and girls’ football at all ages from foundation phase to adults.

Before joining BFCitC, Chanelle worked for Preston North End FC and had a spell of coaching the girls’ team within their education programme, so has great knowledge of coaching at the post 16s level. 

Chanelle has a BSc in Football Coaching and Development along with her FA coaching badges and is aiming to gain further badges whilst currently studying a Masters degree.

This is Chanelle’s first season at BFCitC and she hopes to achieve success with the Girls’ Post 16 Academy.
