Paul takes technical role
 Women's Football News 20 Oct 2007
 
Paul takes technical role - 20 Oct 2007 - Women's Football NewsPaul Mortimer has been appointed as the technical director of the Charlton Athletic women's team for the 2007-08 season, the club announced on Friday.
 
The former Addicks winger, who has been coaching the Premier League side on a temporary basis since the women's set-up was resurrected over the summer, has so far overseen two competitive matches.
 
Although he will oversee the first team coaching, Mortimer will also act as technical director for the entire women's and girls' football set-up, which is under the umbrella of the Charlton Community Trust.
 
It was financial support from the trust, plus sponsorship and grants, that enabled the centre of excellence, academy and first team to be rescued when it looked likely the female set-up would close following budget cuts in the wake of Charlton's relegation from the Premier League.
 
Community director Jason Morgan explained: "Paul, along with other coaches, was made aware that jobs within the women's set-up were on an acting basis until money was in place and job descriptions and adverts could be drawn up.
 
"Paul applied in writing and, following an interview that took place on Thursday with myself and a club official, was offered the job and duly accepted.
 
"Paul will coach and manage the first team this season and, as he holds a current A licence, becomes eligible to oversee the girls' centre of excellence and academy teams."
 
Mortimer said: "I'm delighted to be the technical director. It's what I wanted from the start, and I'm really looking forward to the training, the coaching and the next matches.
 
"It's hard work at the moment and there is a lot of work to do, but it's also very enjoyable, and I'm having a blast.
 
"I spent a little time not coaching and I missed it big time. I love being involved in football."
 
Following huge upheaval during the summer, Charlton's predominantly teenage side have started the season with successive defeats, going down 7-0 to current league leaders Bristol Academy and 6-0 to Watford in their first outing at Princes Park earlier this month.
 
But Mortimer is expecting results to improve throughout the course of the season.
 
"I'm looking forward to the Cardiff match on Sunday," he said. "We need to get another 90 minutes under our belts, because that's the only way we are going to get fitter, and the players will learn more about each other.
 
"Obviously, things are difficult at the moment, but results will improve. Hopefully Sunday's match will be closer than our last two games, but they haven't been that bad despite the results because we've been competitive in spells.
 
"We want those spells to become longer periods of play, and it's our performances and how we gel as a side that are more important in the short term."
