A coach awarded by Prince William for her outstanding contribution to grass roots football will coach the Peterborough United deaf girls and ladies for the coming season.
Jade Ramm, aged 20 and from Peterborough, received an award from the Duke of Cambridge, who is also President of the FA, at a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace in 2013.
Jade also beat 4,000 other young football leaders to join the FA National Youth Council and traveled to Rwanda to support FA projects there.
She will begin her coaching role with Posh Deaf Ladies from Monday with the aim of increasing participation and organising regular matches for all the youth and female teams. Jade was involved in setting up the deaf youth teams back in 2013 before their first tournament. Jade currently works with deaf footballers through Peterborough City Futsal Club which have a mens deaf adult team.
Jade said “I’m extremely excited to get involved with Peterborough United deaf girls and help them to develop their skills as well as having fun. From seeing the Peterborough United deaf set up from the start back in 2013, I can’t wait to get back on board with the project!”
The sessions are at Jack Hunt School from 6pm on every Monday during term time. Click here for more information.
