We wanted to provide you with an exciting announcement about the future of our club. Despite the unfortunate year we have faced, we are committed more than ever to continue with the growth of our family club and moving forward are delighted to announce we are appointing our First Ever Girls Director. After becoming a key figure in our girl’s teams, Coach Matthew Tanner has earned the honor of becoming a part of history for our club and takes over the responsibilities immediately. Moving forward all enquiries, information, updates etc will come from and should be directed to towards Coach Tanner – Matthewt@ashevilleshieldfc.org
Over the last few years our boys’ side of the club has grown from strength to strength with our club now proud to have teams from U7-U18. Our long term aim as a club is to replicate the same success for the girls, as we look to not only get more girls playing football but also give them the opportunity to do so in our family club. Our hopes in the appointment of our Women’s Director are to:
  • Create the opportunities for our first 9v9 girls team next year (2010/2011s)
  • Create younger 11v11 teams (2009>2006s)
  • Addition of more female coaches to our coaching staff


We hope that you are as excited as we are by this appointment and ask that you continue to spread the word regarding our club and keep a look out for upcoming girls events this Spring! Please help us by congratulating Coach Tanner when you see him around this week 😄
