Essendon Royals Major Football Announcement: New Manager for Mini-Roos

Essendon Royals Soccer club is proud and excited to announce the appointment of our new Manager for Mini-Roos football: Raychel Pierson

With Royals growing so fast in the past few years it's time for us to really step up our Mini-Roos program and it is terrific that we can announce Raychel Pierson stepping into the role of Manager for Mini-Roos Football for season 2019. 

Raychel is current Mini-Roos team coach (U10 Boys White) at the club. With proven experience as a coach, a life-long player (and still playing!) and many years of committee experience back in her homeland of New Zealand, Raychel is a great appointment. Her passion for football and an immediate impact at the club this season augurs well for our Mini-Roos!

Raychel has already started working with the committee on our 2018 closure and 2019 planning. Raychel's primary responsibility will be to organise our coaches, teams and players in age groups up to 11 years old as well as be their voice on our committee. Raychel will be assisting the club in 2018 with the recruitment of Technical Director for Mini-Roos as well as securing coaching appointments for our Mini-Roos teams and assisting the grading process. Raychel will be a key member of the Coaching Panel and will work closely with the Dept of Football at the club to ensure that the Mini-Roos program strives for excellence with a focus on fun!

We congratulate Raychel and welcome her on appointment as Manager for Mini-Roos Football at the club.
