In 2023 we welcomed a brand-new coach to the Northern Rovers Premier Women's team, Jordan Roberts. Having enjoyed a long playing career spanning 20 years and counting, during which time Jordan was helping nurture aspiring junior and youth footballers as a 1-on-1 coach, he had more recently turned his attention to helping the Senior & Youth grades at Auckland United FC.
Our incumbent coach Ben Bate, decided not to renew his coaching contract with Northern Rovers toward the end of 2022, and him and his manager have moved on making way for Jordan and a younger coaching team that injects a fresh perspective, new ideas, and a lot of enthusiasm.
2023 will be a re-building year for Northern Rovers with younger squad members making up a number of positions across both the Prems and Reserves squads. It's an excellent opportunity to these players to get access to some of the best coaching available in Auckland, and get significant playing minutes in the Lotto NRFL Women’s Premiership, while enjoying the full support that Northern Rovers has always put behind the female game.
Our development programme for girls across all grades continues to be a huge draw for Auckland based players, and in 2023 we are expecting to field more female teams for the winter season across junior, youth, and Lotto NRFL football than most other Auckland clubs, which a testament to the hard working coaches we have across the Club who want to make sure our female footballers have access to the best coaching staff in Auckland. Today, our registered female players for 2023 aleady exceeds both our 2021 and 2020 seasons, and there are still a number of registrations to come in.
As we build toward our objectives of installing two artificial turfs, additional lighting, and significant clubroom upgrades, our commitment to the women’s game will continue to make a significant impact in Auckland football.
If you are a Prem or Reserves football player in Auckland and feeling like your coach is not providing you with a good environment to develop further, get in touch with Jordan on 021 155 6305. Throughout February and early March more players are coming across from other Clubs to attend some of Jordan’s training sessions, and Jordan is getting a much better idea of the talent that is out there. So keep getting in touch with Jordan, he is really pleased everytime he hears from another player, and bring your friends, because above all playing at Northern Rovers is often competitive, but always enjoyable.
