England Head Coach Hope Powell has today been awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List 2010.
Hope, who was awarded an OBE in 2002, has received the award in recognition of her contribution to women's football.
The England Head Coach spoke of her honour at being given this recognition for her dedicated service to the women's game. "For me personally, I'm honoured and proud to receive such a fantastic award," she said. "It's even better for the women's game to be honoured and this award is great recognition for all the hard work and efforts of the staff and players that I work with. I would like to say thank you on behalf of everyone in the women's game for this award."
Hope was appointed as the first ever full time England Women's Head Coach in 1998 and in 2003 she was the first female coach to achieve the UEFA Pro Licence. Hope led England to the 2001 European Championship, the 2005 European Championship, the 2007 World Cup Finals in China and, last summer, the Final of the 2009 European Championship in Finland. As a player, Hope won 66 caps for England, mainly as an attacking midfielder, scoring 35 goals.
Meanwhile Cardiff City secretary Karen Jones, who has been with the club as a player and official since its formation in 1975, has also been honoured in the list as she has been awarded the MBE for services to women's and girls football in Wales.
