Staff Roles

RAF Ladies Representative Team Staff Profiles


Michelle Harvey-Perkins


Michelle has been the Ladies Representative Team Manager for 5 seasons. An ex player and captain who made the step into management after an injury. Extremely passionate, with a calm demeanour on the side lines, she leads by example and demands the best from the players at all times. Highlight so far was winning the Inter-Services last season.


Daniel McNamara.


This is Macca’s third season with the LRT and second as head Coach. Recently taken over as Wolverhampton Wanderers Manager in the Women’s Premier League and brings with him an infectious enthusiasm. Highlight was last season when he was part of the set up that won both the Inter-Services and the President’s Cup with the RAF Men’s Development Squad.


Kyle Edwards.


Kyle is in his second year with the LRT. An experienced B Licence coach who has coached at a variety of clubs including Lincolnshire FA RTC, Lincoln City and Boston United. His analysis of in game is exemplary and he is often alongside the dugout providing key information.


Karl Milgate.


Karl is a vastly experienced coach having worked with Oxford United U20 and WSL squad as well as their Academy.  Previously involved with the RAF Men’s Development Squad in which he won the Inter-Services in 2014. Currently undertaking his UEFA A Licence, Karl has been a great addition to the team. 


Hugh McCluskie.


Hugh is in his fifth year with the LRT and is the Goalkeeping coach within the squad and thoroughly enjoys this role and the challenges it brings. His highlight of his coaching career so far came last year when he was involved in the Inter Service Winning Squad and then the President’s Cup with the UK Armed Forces Ladies Squad. 


Lee Pearce.


Lee is in his fifth season as the LRT head therapist. Always one of the busiest staff members during the fixtures, Lee is always in demand. It is his hard work and long hours away from the pitch that ensure we always have a fit squad. Probably from a player’s prospective the most appreciated member of staff.


Carly Thomas


Carly was a tough tackling midfielder for the LRT until an injury put a temporary end to her playing days. Whilst still recovering she has undertaken the thankless task of Kit Manager for the last two seasons. In true RAF Logistician style she looks after the kit as if it is her own and routinely denies players socks. 


Alice Henderson


This is Alice’s first season with the RAF LRT and is the Deputy General Manager. Her behind the scenes work is vital in preparing the squad for any upcoming fixture and this can range from sorting accommodation to ensuring personnel are made available from their workplace.
