Lee Ashforth Joins WRCFA


West Riding FA is delighted to welcome Lee on board to lead the development of Coaches and Referees across West Riding.

Steve Dorey, Senior Football Development Officer, said "We are delighted to announce that Lee Ashforth will be joining the team full time. Lee has a wealth of experience in grassroots football, including undertaking a part time role as an FA Coach Mentor in West Riding, which he will continue to do. In addition, Lee is an FA UEFA B licence holder and has spent many years coaching and managing in non-league football, with his current position as Manager of Campion, who compete in the Northern Counties East Football League First Division.

Lee’s remit will be to share the administrative duties of all our coach and referee education provision along with Lewis Dawson, who remains in post in a part time capacity. We are really excited about Lee joining the team."

Lee added "Joining the West Riding County FA team is a fantastic opportunity for myself and I am looking forward to working not only with the team but working with Clubs, Coaches and Referees across the County. The Coach Education Programme is already superb and continuing and creating current and new opportunities for everyone to develop is something I will take pride in. I am fortunate to be involved in football as a career and now working full time for the National Governing Body of our countries most popular sport is a dream come true."
