OFA Ramadan coaching event a success

We recently hosted our first Ramadan Coaching event to discuss opportunities for coaches in Oxford.

Hosted by Abdoullah Kheir, Coach Development Officer (Diversity & Inclusion) at the FA, and Leicester City FC U18s coach Waheed Ramzan and Michael Thurlow, Oxfordshire FA Football Development Manager, this was a great chance for everyone in attendance to learn more about the opportunities available to them throughout grassroots football in our region.

Michael said: “We had a brilliant evening of engagement and discussions at our first Ramadan Coaching Event in Oxford.

“It was a great evening building relationships with communities, and we are already looking forward to future events across the county in 2023.”

This event was part of our commitment and work as a County FA to have a more diverse grassroots coaching workforce in the county. This will be the one of many continued ED&I coaching support events in 2023 and beyond.
