Steve Walmsley has taken over as the new manager of Blackpool Wren Rovers in the North West League.
"I was the First team manager of Manchester City last season, and I left the club in the summer after two enjoyable seasons in the Premier League," he says, "and I have now taken up the challenge with Blackpool Wren Rovers in the North West League.
"In the seven weeks as First team manager, I have brought in my assistant/physio at Manchester City Eddie Gregory, plus three ex-Man City players including Kat Forshaw, Amy Butterworth and last season's leading goalscorer Nikki Berko. We also have a great squad of experience and youth with Caz Wilcock being our captain, and 18-year-old Laura Went as Vice Captain, Sam Jones, Jacey Sampson and Jaz Cripps - who are all ex-Arsenal Academy players - add more quality and depth to our strong squad, plus we have also signed Emma Semps from Preston North End, Michelle Brindle from Darwen Ladies, and Amy Foxcroft from Burnley.
"The club is geared to go further and after a major redevelopment this summer with the first team and reserves, both squads are strong in depth with youth and experience. On all home matches the players are treated to a pre-match meal and a pre-match preparation that would compare to a lot of top clubs in our national leagues, but one thing is assured - ALL the players at Blackpool Wren Rovers know that every game is going to be a tough battle as Liverpool Feds, Burnley, Wigan and Bury etc are very good teams that are all striving for promotion.
"Pre-season has been tough on the girls as the fitness levels have been worked on with beach training over at St.Annes beach and as for friendlies, we have played Scunthorpe Utd first team, Everton reserves, Blackburn Rovers reserves and a local under-18 team with all the games being a great success, and the players getting stronger and stronger by the week."
