This is a paid position. The Association pays a retainer of £500 per month, plus any profits after costs, from England Squad and National Development squad training sessions (excluding competitions).


From 1 September 2023, all England Squad and National Development squad training income and expenditures shall be processed by the Association, with details published within our annual financial reports and the Association retaining 25% of any profits achieved.


Yours sincerely
