As Manchester City prepare for their FA Women's Super League debut, the club is delighted to announce the management team for the forthcoming season.
Nick Cushing, who has occupied various coaching roles within City over the past seven years, has been appointed First Team Manager while Leigh Wood will continue his long-standing involvement with the women's team as Head Coach. The pair will be assisted by coach Kevin Sims and goalkeeping coach Kurt de Klerk.
"It's a very exciting day for us. We want to play a major role in the WSL and a major role in women's football. We're building a very exciting project, we're taking it very seriously and we're very much looking forward to getting started," said Cushing.
"It's a new league and a new adventure for us, but our aim is to be as competitive as we can. We've got a core bunch of players, but we need to build a bigger squad and develop the culture and environment of the team - that's very important to us, but we're looking forward to the challenge."
The squad will begin their pre-season training in January and will play their games at the new City Football Academy when the development is complete.
"I've been with the club for seven years and I'm delighted that I will be involved in this exciting new chapter for Manchester City Ladies," said Wood.
"The team has gone from strength to strength over the years, from struggling to stay in the Northern Division to winning that league and to have held our own in the Women's Premier League - it has been a great journey. We're now really looking forward to the start of the Super League.
