Jen Herst steps down as Goalkeeper Coach

The FAW can confirm that Jen Herst will step down from her role as Goalkeeper Coach for the Cymru Women’s National Teams to join the Canada Women’s National Team.

A UEFA A licence goalkeeper coach, Herst was brought in to the FAW by Gemma Grainger in April 2021 and has been involved with the Women’s senior, U19 and U17 teams. During her time at the FAW, Cymru have started their 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifying round group with four wins, one draw and one loss, while the WU19 side have celebrated promotion to the 2022 UEFA WU19 EURO Qualifying Round League A.

Herst will be joining Olympic Gold medal winners Canada ahead of the February international window.

The FAW would like to thank Jen for her work with Welsh football over the past 9 months and wish her well in her future endeavours.
