Today I’ve travelled south to meet Maggie Murphy – the new Women’s General Manager at Lewes Football Club. Two years ago, Lewes FC became the first football club in the world to pay their women’s team the same wages as their men’s team. I wanted to find out more about what that means to how the club is developing.
Maggie is committed, energetic, and inspiring. We talk about creating talent, engaging a community and proving the concept that equality matters.
ABOUT MAGGIE MURPHY
Maggie Murphy became Women’s General Manager at Lewes FC in July 2019. She was previously with the Sport Integrity Global Alliance, where she was Director of Public Policy and Sport Integrity. Prior to that she had senior roles in advocacy at Transparency International, the world’s largest anti-corruption organization and worked at Amnesty International on human rights issues.
On joining Lewes FC Maggie said, “I’m incredibly impressed with how the club leads through action, not words and it is an honour to be joining the team. My ambition is clear – for Lewes FC to be the best club in the world, for everybody to know about it, and for others to learn from the example we are setting.”
