‘One of the most exciting things FLS has done is up and running in the new year. We have put together a small group of outstanding young sportsmen and women, of whom 6 have already captained England, and over the next year, they will be given opportunities to develop their leadership capabilities. They each have a mentor, someone prominent in sport, business or the military, and they will have the chance to meet many other leaders during the year, as well as attending all FLS events. The impetus for this project has been the fact that in the United Kingdom we are still not producing enough people ready to take on leadership roles as players, high level coaches and administrators. FLS seeks to assist in the development of leaders in, of and through sport, and this first cohort of young leaders will be given every assistance to fulfil their potential on and off the field of play. The group includes-
Eboni Beckford-Chambers- Netball
Charlotte Edwards- Cricket
Katy McLean- Rugby Union
Tom Mitchell- Rugby Union
Emily Scarrett- Rugby union
Georgie Twigg- Hockey
Mark Tomlinson- Polo
Luke Wallace- Rugby Union
The mentors for this group members are Vic Luck (Director FLS), Bob Reeves (Director FLS), Maj General Stuart Skeates (formerly Commandant, Sandhurst), Richard Hytner (Vice Chairman Saatchi and Saatchi), Tim Griffin (CEO Dell UK), Josh Lewsey (Director FLS), Kevin Bowring (RFU Elite Coach Development Manager), Andy Cosslett (CEO Fitness First Ltd).
The FLS website will feature the programme and will report on how it develops.'
