The FA to appoint Technical Director

Tue 27th Mar 2012 | Football Governance

The Football Association (FA) confirmed today that they have began the process to find a Technical Director to help raise the standards of both the elite and grassroots game in England.

The successful candidate, who will be based at St George's Park, will work alongside Sir Trevor Brooking, The FA's Director of Football Development, with the responsibility of leading on the technical development programme at The FA.

A key part of The FA's Strategic Plan is to put measures in place to ensure English coaches and players maximise their opportunity for success in the future. A particular focus of the Technical Director's role will be to lead and manage a world class, qualified and licensed national coach education workforce and programme.

Work around coach education will be boosted later this year with the opening of St George's Park, incorporating the Umbro National Football Centre, which will also house world-class facilities covering Performance Analysis, Sports Science and Medicine, Psychology and Scouting/Recruitment.

The Technical Director will co-ordinate the provision of these areas at St George's Park, which will support all of England's 24 teams and be available to professional football more widely.

Working closely with representatives from the Premier League and the Football League, the successful candidate will also lead The FA's input to support the implementation of the Elite Player Performance Plan.

Alex Horne, The FA's General Secretary, said: "We are entering a hugely exciting time for English football, at both ends of the scale. The recent National Game refresh and the imminent opening of St George's Park are just two amongst a number of inspirational landmarks for The FA. The role of Technical Director will be crucial as we continue to strive towards improving the technical ability and knowledge of our players and coaches both now and in the future."
