Marianne first joined Beacon Hill FC in 2012 when she volunteered to be the manager of her son’s team. By the start of the 2014 season, Marianne had been appointed as the club’s U6/U7 Coordinator. She then became Beacon Hill’s U6-U11 coordinator in 2015, while also serving as the club’s assistant registrar.
Over the next few seasons, Marianne continued to perform multiple roles in support of the committee. In addition to her youth coordinator and assistant registrar roles, she has acted as Beacon Hill’s sponsorship coordinator, MWFA Delegate and judiciary representative.
Not satisfied with watching and volunteering, in 2016 Marianne began playing in the WO35 competition and she is now a WO40 player.
When the position of Beacon Hill President became vacant in 2021, Marianne volunteered to step into the breach and continues to serve as the club’s President to this day. At a time when the club was struggling to fill committee roles, Marianne recruited new volunteers to supplement Beacon Hill’s long-serving stalwarts. During this time, she has continued with her coordinator roles and managing her son’s team.
Marianne Hardy is one of the driving forces in steering Beacon Hill Football Club towards the next phase of participation in MWFA competition.
