The Cornwall FA is proud to announce the election of the first female representative on its governing Council in its 124-year history.
Redruth-based Rose-Pannell-Hitchens joins the Cornwall FA Council as the Women's Leagues representative.
Rose started playing football at Truro College, followed by spells at Penzance and Marjon's. She is now the player/manager for Bodmin Town Ladies FC and works at Tremough Campus Penryn for the Falmouth and Exeter Students Union, co-ordinating sports activities.
Rose said: "I feel hugely excited about joining the Council. It's a positive step for the women's game in Cornwall. I hope I can represent the Cornwall Women's League and allow a clear path of communication from the Women's League to their Governing Council and back again. Personally, I believe it is very important for the Council to consist of a broad demographic of members in order for it to be effective.
"To have opportunities for the leagues to be represented in the Council is bound to produce great results as the stake holders are being truly represented! It is really going to enhance discussions about how football moves forward in the future in Cornwall for the benefits of the players, volunteers, followers and supporters.
"In terms of the women's game, now I hope female footballers can feel they are truly represented on the Cornwall FA Council, and when it comes to discussions about the female game, the fact I am a woman who plays football and is actually experiencing it first hand week in week out will be appreciated and valued."
Cornwall FA Chairman Geoff Lee said: "I am especially delighted that we now have a woman on the Council. I am pleased Rose has highlighted the benefits to everyone involved in the game of direct representation of leagues. It means those people will be at the forefront of decision-making in Cornwall in a way not seen before. I am looking forward very much to working with Rose and the other new league representatives too."
