Now the WFA’s new committee is up and running and after the first hectic weekend at the premiership we
are sad to inform you that Chris Gordon has decided to stand down as WFA National League Secretary.
Due to his other commitments within the sport of Powerchair Football, Chris felt that he wasn’t able to
commit enough time on League weekends to fulfil the role.

Speaking about his decision, Chris has said:

“First of all I would like to thank the members for electing me as the new WFA National League Secretary
at last season’s AGM. At the time I felt it was a good opportunity for me to get involved in the day to day
running of the National League to try and help our sport to develop off the pitch. However after the first
Premiership league weekend back in September, it was obvious to me that I didn’t have the time to commit to the role on match days whilst continuing to play and coach myself. Therefore it is with regret that I have decided to stand down from the WFA National League Secretary role and wish my replacement all the best moving forward. I am still very keen to play an active role in the development of our sport, and look forward to working with the WFA moving forward.”

Chris is able to apply and stand for election in the future for further WFA Trustee positions and we shall
always keep in close contact with Chris regarding any opportunities that arise and will actively seek ways in
which Chris can support the WFA. We’re sorry to see Chris leave the committee and thank him for the work
he has done pre-season in getting the league set up for this coming year.  

As you can appreciate the role needed to be filled very quickly and we’re pleased to inform you all and
welcome Amy Wharton who has volunteered to be the new League Secretary.  Thank you to Amy and we
wish you well in your new role.  Amy will take a lead on the administrative side of running the league and
cup competitions and starts with immediate effect.

In addition to assist Amy in her role and to help the running of National League weekends on match days
we are looking for volunteer match day co-ordinators. Duties will include setting up the equipment, logging
speed timings, ensuring all scores and scorers are recorded correctly and clearing up the equipment etc. If
you would like to volunteer for this role can you please contact either Dave Lewis
