Donna Powell 14 Aug 2009
Donna Powell
Female coach at Fisher FC

Donna Powell made history earlier this year when she became the first woman to manage a senior men’s football team in the UK. Her beloved Fisher Athletic were offering the chance for one fan to manage the team for a day and Donna raised £500 to make sure that she was the one giving orders on the touchline. She so impressed the team’s new manager that he offered her the job of first team coach. She joins Jenni to explain why she’s so determined to make it in the world of men’s football.

Fisher  FC are playing Greenwich Borough on Saturday, 15th August . The game kicks off at 3pm and is being played at Champion Hill Stadium, East Dulwich.
