MOST READ


Charlotte Moran, the longtime executive director of the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association and administrator for the Region 1 Olympic Development Program, died after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Moran was involved in soccer at many levels for more than 30 years and played an important leadership role in the growth of women's soccer.

She first became involved in soccer as a team parent in the late 1970s. In addition to her work at the youth level, she was the director of team operations for the WUSA's Philadelphia Charge (2001-2003) and worked to bring an MLS and WPS expansion teams to Philadelphia.

The NSCAA Women's Committee issued a statement on Moran's passing:

"Charlotte's contributions to this world and to soccer were enormous and with her passing, there is a huge void in our game, world and lives that will be difficult to fill. Our thoughts and prayers are with Charlotte's family at this difficult time."

Noted William & Mary women's coach John Daly, "We have lost a jewel this morning. What Charlotte did for soccer in general, and girls soccer in particular cannot be measured. So many young girls are now enjoying, and have enjoyed, the fruits of Charlotte's efforts. Whether playing in the new Women's Professional Soccer league, or in coaching, young women all over the country have benefited from the remarkable work Charlotte put in over the years."

In 2007, the NSCAA Women's Committee awarded Moran its Award of Excellence.

Funeral arrangements were pending.
