Bristol Academy manager Dave Edmondson has announced Jemma Rose as the new first team captain.
Corinne Yorston will still play a vital role for the field on and off the field as Edmondson has named her as Club Captain for Bristol Academy.
Edmondson said: "Part of my role at BAWFC is to develop a culture and philosophy that runs from top to bottom, from the FA WSL side down to the Under-9s in the Centre of Excellence. Much of that is to do with developing a football philosophy and a technical and tactical awareness that all coaches and players are fully aware of and comfortable with.
"Before that though, a club needs to have a culture of excellence, the values and behaviours that typify and identify the club! One aspect of growing the club is creating leaders and a leadership group to lead the culture within the club and amongst the playing staff. With that in mind, Corinne Yorston has been named Club Captain, where her natural leadership qualities and her position of respect within all levels of the club can be best utilised. Jemma Rose will be promoted from vice captain to first team captain, after she has shown personal drive and determination to succeed during the first part of the season, to lead the team on match days.
"Both positions are important elements of the leadership of the playing group both on and off the field and I'm sure both Jemma and Corinne will contribute to the further success of BAWFC moving forward."
Corinne holds a number of roles at the club and is a great example of a real club person who works tirelessly to contribute to the betterment of BAWFC across the board. She said: "I am honoured to have been captain of this team for the past three and a half seasons. Having spoken to Dave I understand and respect his decision, and to be named club captain is a position I am extremely proud to hold.
"Bristol Academy WFC is a great club to be a part of, and to have a role that is intertwined through every layer of the club, with the potential to help drive forward the club across all age groups, is very important to me. The club has a great future, from the Under-9s to the first team players, and I am privileged to be Club Captain."
Jemma is a winner and a natural leader, capable of pushing her team mates to achieve a little more and to push themselves that but harder. She said: "It is a massive honour and privilege to be given he captaincy by Dave. It's an exciting opportunity to look forward to. I want to thank Corinne also, having played alongside her for a number of year I have learnt a lot and I know she will be a big support to me in this new role."
Edmondson added: "Both of these personalities and personal qualities are fantastic attributes to have at the club and I am confident that together they can lead the team and club to the next level."
