Derby County Football Club Women

From the Boardroom – April

“An Almost Unique Offer within British Football”

“Much has been made of the clubs links with Derby University, which saw the Ewe Rams recently recruit the services of UEFA A Licence coach, Graham Abercrombie to lead the university Women’s squad, which includes three full bursary football journalism course scholars through DCFCW.  According to Social Director, Alison Cope, the next step for both parties is to raise awareness of what is an almost unique offer within British football.

“Very few clubs can boast a link with their local university in which players receive their entire education for free through alignment with the club; however not only do we have that at Derby County FC Women, we have it in relation to the countries only Football Journalism course.”

“It’s fair to say that there was a huge fanfare of national publicity when it was launched three years ago; however we need to keep it at the forefront of thinking and attention for high end players both outside and inside of the club and there are plans in place to review how best to achieve that.”
