Elvin set to step down from leagues post

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Sport - By JEREMY WIL­SON

AFL NORTH East Bor­der is on the look­out for a new leagues man­ager with gen­eral man­ager of the Fe­male Foot­ball League Noe­lene Elvin an­nounc­ing her res­ig­na­tion.

Elvin, who is also man­ager of the Al­bury/Wodonga ju­nior league, has been with AFLNEB for the past two years and will fin­ish up in her role on Novem­ber 30 with ap­pli­ca­tions al­ready open for a re­place­ment.

Over the past two years, Elvin has overseen sig­nif­i­cant growth in fe­male foot­ball which has seen an 83 per cent in­crease in par­tic­i­pa­tion from 2017 to 2018 alone.

While this growth has come with its own unique chal­lenges, Elvin has es­tab­lished a plat­form for the fu­ture of fe­male foot­ball in the re­gion.

Through Elvin’s work, AFLNEB have been able to im­ple­ment an op­er­a­tional frame­work, de­signed and im­ple­mented league rules and reg­u­la­tions, and es­tab­lished an event sched­ule that all con­trib­ute to de­vel­op­ing a cul­ture for fe­male par­tic­i­pa­tion.

In a state­ment re­leased via the AFLNEB web­site, Elvin was thanked for her time in charge of two of the grow­ing leagues of the re­gion.

“On be­half of the AFLNEB Com­mis­sion and af­fil­i­ated leagues and clubs we thank Noe­lene for her en­er­gies and ef­forts over the past two years and wish her well in her next ven­ture,” the state­ment read.

Ap­pli­ca­tion de­tails for the league man­ager role can be found at www. aflneb.com.au.
