Cardiff City LFC Coach Michele Adams was honoured recently by the Sports Council for Wales by being nominated as 'Female Coach of the Year'.
Michele missed out on the top spot to Sarah Ginn, a cricket coach from Radyr, but was honoured to pick up the runners-up award at a prestigious lunch attended by many distinguished guests, and top sportsmen and women.
Michele is a worthy candidate for the award as there is no person more dedicated and committed to Welsh women's football. After 33 years involvement she is still keen and enthusiastic to help young players develop in the sport. Michele juggles her football commitment around a full time job and family life, and works tirelessly for her club Cardiff City LFC where she is the inspiration behind many of its junior development initiatives.
As a player with Cardiff City LFC, Michele won numerous medals and trophies and retired from playing with the biggest accolade and honour of captaining her country. She started her coaching career in 1992 and has worked hard to become a UEFA level 'B' licensed coach.
On retiring from playing, Michele took the reins of Club Coach where she has coached and developed numerous players. She remains a volunteer, working with all ages within the club where she is highly regarded and respected by all the players, coaches and volunteers. For five years she also coached at the Football Association of Wales development centre.
Michele has brought great success to Cardiff by winning the South West Combination League in 2003 with a 100% record, getting to the last eight of the FA Women's Cup in the same season. Michele has steered Cardiff to winning the FAW Welsh Cup on six occasions and a record breaking five years on the trot last season. Winning the Welsh cup gains automatic entry into the UEFA Women's Cup where Michele has enjoyed pitting her wits against some of the best European coaches.
Michele also coaches the Welsh women's under-19s and has done so for the past ten years, nurturing many players to go on and achieve international honours for Wales. Between 2000 and 2005 Michele was head coach of the British Civil Service Sports Council team.
Michele realised her ambition in the sport to take her club Cardiff City LFC to the National Division in 2006 and become a part of the best twelve teams in the country, where the team sustained their position last season.
