Benfield Junior Girls Football

Inspirational coach Leonie Kennedy and next generation coach Ellie Mark were nominated by head coach Mark Rooke and many of the parents at Benfield Junior Girls Football Club to receive the #PassOnYourPassion baton.

Mark said he had nominated Leonie because: "Leonie is a huge role model to all our girls. She puts in a huge amount of hours and has taken our girls section to great heights in two seasons. She is also very integral in the club as a whole. She helps whenever asked and even without asking her. She runs four out of our five girls' teams and also drives our girls' soccer camp on a Wednesday evening. I cannot speak more highly of her. Her enthusiasm is unreal and rubs off on everyone she's in contact with.  Leonie also took charge of organising our club's UK qualifiers for The Champions Trophy, the largest u10 tournament in the world with finals in Austria."

Leonie is passing her passion for coaching on to Ellie Mark. When nominating Ellie, Leonie said, "Ellie provides coaching for the U10 girls. She is a great role model and also teaches her players self-worth and confidence. She always has a smile on her face and is always chatty and friendly with her players."

We will now be working with both Leonie and Ellie to support them to achieve their goals in coaching and personal development.
