Emmanuel Allen-Burnett Joins As Community Engagement Officer

15 May 2024

We are delighted to welcome Emmanuel Allen-Burnett to the club as our new Community Engagement Officer.

The club are constantly looking for ways to strengthen our presence in the local community and over the past year, we identified that hiring a full-time Community Engagement Officer would help vastly increase the work we can do with the local community.

Therefore, after months of trying to find the right person for this role, we’re very pleased to welcome Emmanuel to the club.

Speaking about what his new role entails, Emmanuel said: “This role is all about fostering our relationship with the key groups within our local community here in Barrow-In-Furness.

“It’s a beautiful town and you can see how passionate everyone is about their football, so I’ve come into this position to really connect the football club back with its fans and see what good we can do within the wider community.”

Emmanuel joins the club having recently finished his studies at UCFB where he completed his degree in Sports Business and Law. Whilst studying at University, Emmanuel volunteered with the Manchester FA where he helped take part in a number of projects within the local community.

Emmanuel added: “Whilst at Manchester FA, I’ve been a part of a lot of community projects in Greater Manchester as part of my role as a member of the Youth Council. Most recently, at the beginning of April, my team and I hosted an event for 100 young people to showcase to them all the different roles and show them how football can help better you with so many different skills that  are transferable to all different aspects of life.”

If you do want to get in touch with Emmanuel, you can do so by emailing him at: M.Allen @barrowafc.com.

Welcome to the club, Emmanuel.
