Michelle Weeks, tragically passed away at the age of 26 on December 4th 2007. Michelle started her playing career at Portsmouth as a youngster where her father would help to coach the team before moving to local rivals Southampton to better her football.
After establishing herself as a top player she moved to London and joined the prestigious Charlton Athletic Female Academy. Michelle then returned home and made a move back to Portsmouth to continue playing until a vacancy to manage the Portsmouth Ladies Reserve Team became available, where she managed and occasionally played for two years. In her first season as manager she led the reserves to a superb Portsmouth Cup victory over Horndean and an astonishing victory in the league over the mighty Arsenal Reserves.
Michelle was also assistant manager to the Hampshire Ladies and Under-18 Girls representative sides, assisting Vanessa Raynbird to help guide both teams to cup victory.
Amongst all the voluntary work, Michelle worked as a coach with the Portsmouth Community Department at Fratton Park she was extremely popular with the children and adults with whom she worked and was a valued member of staff, coaching at schools all over Hampshire and also on the disability courses.
Michelle was a dedicated and popular member of all teams, she did everything she could to help anyone and did so with a smile, a laugh and a joke. Michelle was someone who would always be there for you but never expected anything back in return.
