Guest coaches inspire Toon Ladies - 17 Dec 2012 - Women's Football NewsMelanie Reay, Head Coach at Gateshead College Women's Football Academy and Jill Scott of Everton, England, Olympic GB Footballer and Gateshead College Women's Football Academy Coach were guest coaches on Tuesday evening at the Northumbria University Coach Lane Sports Centre when they spent two hours with the Newcastle United Women's first and reserve teams. 
Melanie, an ex-NUWFC player, captain, manager and FAWPL Golden Boot winner, made a very welcome return to Newcastle United Women's Football Club. Many NUWFC players have not only played alongside Melanie at both Newcastle and Sunderland but also attended Gateshead College and played for the women's Academy team which she manages. Melanie has for a number of years had a very successful Gateshead Academy Women's team winning many trophies, playing in national and international games and has seen many of her players being called up to play for the England Colleges team. Melanie also spent a number of years at the Newcastle Girls Centre of Excellence which was responsible for encouraging and developing the local North East talented women's footballers.
Newcastle captain and ex-Gateshead College Women's Academy Student Sarah Wilson said: "Tuesday we have been given a fantastic opportunity to be coached by Melanie Reay, Gateshead College Women's Football Head Coach and Ex NUWFC player & coach and also Jill Scott, England, Everton and GB.
"Melanie has made such a big impact on many of our players, including myself due to her work within Gateshead College and her previous position within NUWFC. Jill is a great example of what hard work and determination can get you. She is very well known in and around Women's Football all over the county so it will be a massive motivation boost for all the NUWFC players to get the chance to work with her."
Jill Scott received a very warm welcome from the Toon Ladies as they all appreciate just what she has achieved and how much she has done to raise the profile of Women's football in the North East. This summer, Sunderland-born Jill played for the first ever Great Britain women's football team in the 2012 London Olympics and walked out in front of a near-capacity Wembley Stadium crowd when GB played Brazil in their final group game. Former Sunderland player Jill Scott studied a BTEC National Diploma in Sport Science at Gateshead College. During that time, she was a member of the Women's Football Academy.
After attaining her degree, Jill then returned to Coach at the College, a position which she has held for the last five years, while also playing for Everton and England. Jill has proved what you can achieve if you work hard, stay dedicated and commit to your sport. Jill is the complete role model, not just to our footballers but to all sports people and has proved you can live your dream.
Newcastle Reserve Team Manager Gary Appleton said: "Jill Scott and Melanie Reay agreed to put our players through their paces. It is an honour to welcome to NUWFC two ladies who have had so much impact in bringing ladies and girls football to the forefront of team sports in the modern era.
"This will be a great opportunity, especially for the young players to experience a different type of training session and hopefully learn and appreciate that hard work, good attitude and determination can take you to playing football at the highest level and to represent your country. Many thanks go to Jill and Melanie for giving up their time to coach our squad."
