Local football club Civil Service Strollers have appointed Karen Mitchell to the role of community liaison officer.
Karen has been as active part of the north Edinburgh community for many years and with the Strollers for the past year.
At an EGM earlier this week her position to the committee was confirmed.
Karen said: “I am delighted to be given this opportunity and I am really looking forward to getting started.
“I have been involved at the club for a while now and there is so much potential for this club and what it can achieve.
“I hope that over the next few weeks and months I can really make a difference.”
Her new role will see Karen being the clubs contact for all it’s community engagement work.
Club President, Russll Pryde, said: “The committee is delighted to welcome Karen Mitchell to the full committee of the club.
“Karen will take up the role of community liaison and over the next few months we will be working to fully scope out that role.
“Karen came to the club as part of the new Youth set up and she will help to ensure that links across the club are strong.
“However, one of the great assets that Karen brings is her willingness to support all aspects of the club not just at youth level but with the adult sides as well.
“Although the club did have a ladies team at one time, I am pretty sure that Karen is the first female to be represented on the committee and this may well represent the modernising of the outlook at this club.”
