A key contributor to the success of the Ricki Herbert Football Academy, long-time administrator Val Smith, has decided it’s time to take a well-deserved break.
After six years of working behind the scenes at the academy, she’s handing over her role.
“She’s done a fantastic job,” says RHFA founder Ricki Herbert.
“Most of what we do as an academy is judged by what happens on a football pitch but without Val, and others who work behind the scenes, we would not be able to achieve anything.”
Herbert said he and other RHFA staff wanted to express their thanks to Val and to wish her a fruitful and enjoyable time ahead.
