Women and Girls

We are pleased to announce that Rob Meldrum will be taking on the role of Head Coach of the ladies team, once it has been formed. Rob has been working hard alongside the team manager Louise Claber, to set the team up and the appointment is an extremely exciting one for the team.

Rob joined Heaton Hawks last season with a significant amount of experience coaching women and girls. Rob’s successes over the last 10 years include being involved in setting up a women’s team from scratch at Percy Main, which went on to consistently finish in the top 3 of the league and win the League Cup, as well as having pivotal roles at Rutherford Ladies and Leam Rangers U16 Girls and the ladies teams.

Due to Rob’s extensive experience in female football and his passion to develop and grow the game, he will also be taking on the role as Women & Girls Technical Lead within the club.

Rob will be responsible for ensuring there is a pathway for the girls within the club to progress through to the senior team and will be there to provide support and guidance to the managers and coaches of all the girl’s teams within the club.
