BAFA Share Age Group and Commission Lead Vacancies

The British American Football Association are inviting applications for commission lead vacancies following the resignation of Russ Hewitt, who initially took up the post in October 2018 after a number of years on the BAFA Board.


The British American Football Association are sorry to announce the resignation of Russ Hewitt our Commission Lead for Age Groups/BUCS.

Russ has been a long-serving and extremely hard-working member of the American Football  leadership team in the UK and only recently stepped down from his role as a Board Director. Taking on the new Commission Lead for the Age Groups competitions (U17 and U19) and also the University league on behalf of BAFA for BUCS, he has been an invaluable contributor to our new structure who will be hard to replace.

Operations Director Steve Rains said:

“We recognise the overlap in the workload of organising both Age Groups and University football which was hard even for someone with the experience Russ has.

We have therefore decided to split the role into two distinct new roles to allow the incoming job holders more opportunity to concentrate their efforts and attention to one specific area.

Russ is staying on in the role during the recruitment process and will ensure a smooth handover to the new appointees – we are very grateful to him for agreeing to that.

I would like to pay tribute to the work Russ has done, he has not always been given the recognition he deserves in what was an impossible role before the recent reorganisation – without him a lot of things simply would not have happened and he deserves our sincere thanks for his service to the administration of the sport in this country”

Closing date for applications will be Sunday 3 February – a CV and an outline of what you will bring to the role should be sent to
