GB Lions U19s Head Coach Vacancy Announced

Following their hard-fought defeat against Norway, the GB Lions U19s competition cycle for 2019 has come to a close, and so the British American Football Association is opening up the role of GB U19s Head Coach to applicants.

Interim Head Coach Neale McMaster stepped up into the role after BAFA chose to part ways with Coach Jason Henry earlier this year, the programme having been rebooted in 2017 after a number of years without fielding a roster.

Now BAFA are seeking an experienced and passionate Head Coach to lead the programme forwards, with the goal to compete with the very best in Europe!


Following the conclusion of the most recent competition cycle, BAFA is opening up recruitment for the role of GB Junior Head Coach.

BAFA is looking to recruit an experienced and passionate Head Coach to lead the GB Junior team through the next two-year competition cycle and build on the progress made by the programme so far.

Since the programme’s relaunch in 2017 GB Junior have held trials and camps across the country to identify and develop talent and built a squad who have participated in fixtures against national squads from Holland and Norway, and French side Pole Revolution.

The GB junior Head Coach is accountable for developing a strong programme to compete with the best in Europe. Key tasks include responsibility for the growth and performance of the team, creating and implementing a player development strategy and organising and managing player trials, training camps and practice sessions in preparation for international competition.

More details and a person specification for the role is available in the GB Junior Head Coach Application pack.

Those wishing to apply should submit their CV and covering letter to no later than 11pm on 30 April 2019.

After the close of applications, there will be a short-listing session and successful candidates will be invited to interview on 25 May, either face-to-face or via Skype.
