Football St George has announced that former Capital Football CEO Phil Brown has been appointed as the new General Manager of the Association.
Having been in charge of the Australian Capital Territory’s representative football association for nearly six years, Phil is an extremely accomplished football administrator who is equipped to lead and harness the many strengths and vitality of the St George Association’s Member Clubs, players, coaches, and volunteers.
Brown will commence his role as General Manager in January 2022 and the Football St George Board are excited to welcome him on board. They are regarded as one of Australia’s most iconic grassroots football associations.
“Grassroots football has always, and continues to be, a fundamental part of my personal and professional life,” Brown said.
“I look forward to joining Football St George in January 2022 and hope to share the experience and knowledge I have developed through my time with the Asian Football Confederation, Football Australia, Football NSW and Capital Football to continue the great work done by the Association, Clubs, and Referees Branch to provide opportunity for all people to play football.
“I appreciate the trust the Football St George Board has placed in me and will do my utmost to support and grow football in the region.”
FSG Chairperson and Executive Director Irene Hatzipetros was delighted with the Association’s new acquisition.
“FSG are extremely fortunate to be able to secure the services of Phil as our new General Manager,” she said.
“Phil is a proven and highly respected leader with a complete grasp of all levels of football be it local grassroots, junior development, women expansion and elite NPL relationships.
“Importantly he will be actively involved in increasing participation at all levels, gain access to more and improved facilities for our growing needs and foster greater community engagement for our Association.
“The FSG Board look forward to 2022 with much excitement and working closely with Phil, the Football St George team, and our Member Clubs to deliver a fantastic and enjoyable season to the entire St George football community.”
