Nottingham Forest Ladies coach and technical director of the club’s regional talent centre, Alena Moulton, has become one of the first graduates of The FA’s Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic [BAME] mentee programme.
Moulton, who left her role at Derby County Ladies to spend a year developing her skills with The FA at St. George’s Park, took part in the initiative which aims to help redress the significant under-representation of BAME coaches at the top levels of the game.
Forest head coach Graham Abercrombie said: “I recruited Alena and it’s probably the best signing I have ever made. She really is superb in terms of the level she brings.”
Alena is now working towards her UEFA A Licence and is aiming to reach the very top of the game and she said “I want to go as far as I can in the football world [and] to pave the way for others as well.”
This week The FA has unveiled a significant commitment to making the organisation, its workforce and the game more inclusive and diverse.
