We are looking for Gemma to take each of our goalkeepers to a new level and give them the preparation they need to play in college and beyond”

A UK level 2 Coach, Gemma has been coaching the Wales Under 21 goalkeepers as well as the University of Wales Men’s goalkeepers and is leaving her teaching post at Cardiff and Vale College in Wales to join W C Eagles.

“’I am pleased to have been offered the role of Goalkeeper coach at WC Eagles” said Ible, “and am looking forward to moving to the USA. Having researched the club and its history it is clear to see how successful they are and how dedicated the club is to its athletes.
