Connecting Clubs & Coaches Within County Football

Hampshire FA Is Taking Further Steps to Support Grassroots Coaches

Hampshire FA has joined the Sporting Connect Community - improving access to local coaching opportunities

Hampshire FA is pleased to be working with Sporting Connect - becoming the latest county to join the growing County Connect community.

The network, which was originally launched by the Surrey FA, aims to improve access to local coaching opportunities within county football.

Clubs of all levels are invited to use the network to advertise their coaching jobs for free and find the right individual for the role - receiving applications direct from the website.

Coaches can register for free to access grassroots opportunities, with the option to upgrade their profile for £4.99 per month and access some of the very latest professional job opportunities throughout the game.



Alice Weaving, Coaching & Workforce Football Development Officer, Hampshire FA commented, “We are extremely excited to be working with Sporting Connect. The County Connect website is a simple way for Clubs and Coaches to connect and share latest opportunities. I am sure the network will be a benefit to the county and improve opportunities, access, and awareness within the game”.



Sporting Connect was launched in 2011, originally created by an amateur and a professional footballer. Their shared passion for the game brought them together to create a network which now serves a community of over 18,000 members and aims to connect coaches with the very latest opportunities throughout all levels of football.

In 2020, they partnered with Surrey FA to develop a regional county network to help connect localised coaching opportunities within football. “It’s fantastic to welcome Hampshire FA to the County Connect network. Having played amateur football for most of my life and now coaching at grassroots level, I know the challenges Clubs face on a day-to-day basis to find the right individuals for any roles they may be looking to fill. We want to play our part to ensure that we help our members save time searching and connect with them with the most suitable clubs and coaches for.” - Rob Lovesey, Founder, Sporting Connect.
