Meet our Council

Council Members

The Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA is a membership organisation and our Council represents the views of our members and adds value to our County FA through their expert first-hand knowledge. 

Historically Council Membership largely comprised of affiliated League representatives, however in the 2022-23 changes to the Association’s Articles and Council Rules have allowed for greater opportunity for a more representative Council which reflects the evolving structure of the game locally.  You can find out more about the role of council and how Council Members are elected by CLICKING HERE.
