Long serving Sunderland manager Mick Mulhern has stepped down from the job with immediate effect.
The announcement brings an end to Mulhern's tenure which has lasted over eight years and has seen the development of many young players who have progressed through the ranks to the first team. Several stars have been recognised at international level, three of whom - Jill Scott, Steph Houghton and Carly Telford - were selected in the England squad for last year's FIFA Women's World Cup in China.
The North East side currently lie in joint second place in the Northern Division, having won their last seven league games. Sunderland also face an F.A.Women's Cup Fourth Round tie against Birmingham City on Sunday, with the winners travelling to Fulham.
Sunderland Chairman Maurice Alderson said: "It is with regret that Sunderland Women's FC announces the resignation of FIrst Team Manager and Head Coach Mick Mulhern due to work commitments.
"All at Sunderland WFC are very grateful for the work he has done over the years in establishing us as the region's premier women's football club and we wish him well for the future."
Assistant Manager Alan Snowdon will oversee football matters in conjunction with the coaching staff until a suitable and appropriately qualified successor can be installed.
