Glen Harris has made three new additions to his backroom staff, as the new Lincoln Ladies manager looks to push the club forward under his stewardship.
Glen, who took over at the end of the last FA WSL season, has introduced Paul Campbell, Hannah Dingley and Dean Wheatley to the team as he prepares for the new season next year.
Paul Campbell will be the new Strength and Conditioning Coach and having worked with the first team squad since last September, he already knows what to expect in his new role. He said: "It is a real pleasure to work with the ladies on a regular basis. They're a very hard working group of players with a lot of focus in every session.
"My experience of the WSL last season was excellent and I am really looking forward to what the next season brings. There is a lot of hard work to do between now and the start of the season but the ladies have started very positively and are progressing well so far."
Hannah Dingley is a UEFA A licenced outfield coach, as well as holding a B licence in coaching goalkeepers. She will now be taking up the role of First Team Coach, having previously held this position at Nottingham Forest. The prospect of working alongside Harris is something that she said
influenced her decision to join the Lady Imps, despite reaching the Premier League Cup Final with Forest only last season.
"Lincoln Ladies FC not only have some of the best players in the country, but also have one of the best youth systems," said Hannah. "Glen Harris has a reputation of being an excellent coach and he wants to play the game the right way and I think Lincoln offers me the best opportunity to develop as a coach."
It is not just the team that excites Hannah though, as she looks ahead to challenging for the WSL title next season. "It is a fantastic challenge to be pitting your wits against some of the best coaches in the country. All the players are obviously technically very good however at this level it is about getting teams to gel and play together as a team."
Last and definitely not least, Dean Wheatley has been appointed as the club's new Technical Consultant, as he returns to the club after almost 17 years. Dean also worked for Lincoln City Football Club for a decade before moving abroad where he headed football in the Northland region of New Zealand where he was also head coach of second tier side, North Force Whangarei.
Now he returns to his hometown to a club that has grown, to say the least, since he was last a part of the set up, where he will take up a very different role this time around: "My title is Technical Consultant which covers a broad range of things from working with Glenn with the 1st team, which will be one of my priorities, to working with the coaches and players in the Centre of Excellence.
"It's brilliant to be a part of the team regarding the upcoming season. We have some great players here and will be looking to achieve something this year after the very positive first season."
