Meet our Community Captain, Charlotte Monk!

Charlotte Monk has been chosen as Shrewsbury Town FC Foundation’s Community Captain as part of the Premier League’s “More Than Football” campaign.

Through programmes funded by the Premier League, Shrewsbury Town FC Foundation have been able to educate and inspire young people with sessions such as Premier League Primary Stars and Premier League Kicks. These sessions showcase how much of an impact football clubs can make on their community outside of a matchday. To celebrate the impact of these programmes and their support as a whole, the Premier League have launched the “More Than Football” campaign. As part of this campaign, clubs have been asked to nominate a Community Captain, someone who deserves to be recognised for their contribution to the community.

Due to her commitment to utilise sport as a catalyst for change, we have awarded our Community Coach, Charlotte Monk, with the title of Community Captain. Charlotte continues to be a positive role model for the young people that she works with by bringing enthusiasm and fun to each session that she delivers. She continues to be an ambassador for not only promoting education through sport, but for young people passionate about sport and pursuing a career within the industry.

Charlotte’s work involves curriculum PE delivery in local schools which has allowed her to have a positive impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of the pupils that she teaches regularly.

“By wearing the Shrewsbury Town logo, I feel a sense of pride. The uniform that I wear receives positive recognition throughout my local community. I see the badge as a mark of quality and a reflection of the Foundation’s values which I support and promote in my work” said Charlotte.

Charlotte has been supported by the foundation by receiving funding and time within my working week for football specific qualifications: The FA Playmaker, Safeguarding for Committee Members, Sudden Cardiac Arrest, Concussion Guidelines, Introduction to First Aid, Safeguarding Children in Football, and The Introduction to Coaching Football. As a result of this learning, she has led and assisted sessions for the soccer schools, skill centre, wildcats and Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programmes.

“Through her work across the foundation, Charlotte has been able to engage with young people with different ages and abilities and use sport as a powerful motivator. She has encouraged them to get involved and see sport as a fun way of learning and staying active. When asked to nominate a Community Captain, choosing Charlotte was really a no brainer!”
