Welcome Tom Crawford
Tom Crawford has this month committed his support to the Her Game Too initiative.
Tom has become one of only a handful of "Player Advocates" who play a critical part in champoning and supporting the Her Game Too message within football - through supporting and promoting the aims and objectives.
On signing his contract, Tom said:
"I am very excited to be the Hartlepool United Her Game Too Player Advocate. I hope we can take huge strides in stopping the discrimination that comes unnecessarily with the women's game. I want to be a part of women feeling confident and proud of playing and watching the game we all love".
Jill Simmonds, HUFC Her Game Too Ambassador said:
“It is so important to have player advocates working with us at Her Game Too. The help they give in getting our message heard by everyone is vital! As a campaign we are here to support all females in sport and that includes players families who have also been victims of sexist and misogynistic abuse at football matches.
The Her Game Too HUFC team are absolutely thrilled to have Tom working with us. He will be our link to the playing and coaching squad as well as sharing our work on social media platforms!
Let’s hope for a successful season, on and off the pitch.”
