First Professional Woman Manager In English Football, Is It Close To Happening?

Recommended Posts

After sacking Mark Cooper on Monday, Forest Green Chairman Dale Vince has said he was ready to break new ground in his appointment of a new manager.That includes interviewing and potentially giving the job to a woman. This would be quite a moment for the English game in general, and another brave and innovative move from a Britain's first 100% vegan club, and one that already has a woman (Hannah DIngley) as head of their academy.

Brings up the inevitable question of how long before a woman is manager of a senior non league club in Cornwall? Can't see why it couldn't happen, and I expect if said person brought finance and player contacts with them (seemingly a major criteria) then it would be a tempting prospect for a committee to consider.

To suggest anything less would be criminal in this day and age WOTP. Why should a women be incapable of being a good judge of a player ? Look no further than Emma Hayes of Chelsea Ladies. The MCP's will never accept this of course.
