Sports Development Manager Mason Galloway on Rob’s appointment

I am delighted with our appointment to bring Rob on board full-time with us. We have had a great recent history of growth, success, and performance in women’s football over the past 5 years. It is remarkable to see the journey we have been on as a college and how far we have come. Right now is an exciting time for women’s football off the back of the recent euro success the England lionesses achieved. We have lots to do as a college to continue growing women’s football locally, at BTC and in the wider community. I am confident with Rob the programme will continue to progress, flourish and leave a lasting legacy for the community.

Rob Liddiard commented

I am absolutely delighted to be on board with Team BTC and hope to build on the recent successes of the Women’s Football Programme and continue to develop new and existing partnerships. The College has an incredible dual-career partnership with Bridgwater utd alongside a fantastic educational system, that I am honoured to be a part of.
