The International Programme is governed by the ESFA’s Council through its Representative Football Committee. The Committee sets the international programme, which is built around the competitive fixtures provided by the Schools’ International Football Association Board (SAFIB). The Council further supports the international programme by running a series of regional trials, co-ordinated by a Council member or their nominee.
For the 19/20 season, regional co-ordinators are:
|John Martin||South West of England|
|Stuart Botham||South East of England|
|Alan Johnston||North of England|
|Stuart Inger||South West of England|
|Phil Harding||South East of England|
|Richy Alderson||North of England|
Council are supported in their work by an International Programme Co-ordinator, who administers the programme behind the scenes. For the boys, this voluntary post is held by Derv Chown. An appointment for the girls programme is expected imminently.

|Adam Jones||Assistant Manager|
