Brighton & Hove Albion have appointed James Marrs as their new first team Head Coach.
Marrs arrives at the club after guiding Gillingham to second place in the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division in the season just finished and he is relishing the challenge ahead.
He told seagulls.co.uk: "I had a conversation with Tracy [Doe] last year and she asked me whether I'd be interested in coming down for a chat, but unfortunately it was too late in my pre-season preparations with Gillingham for me to do that.
"Then we had another conversation recently and I knew the club was going places and wanted to be a part of that.
"The first thing that struck me was the professionalism of everything here. As soon as you come into the stadium, you see what the plans are and everything is very impressive; so it was quite an easy decision really.
"The support from the men's side of the club is incredible and that will play a big factor in us securing Women's Super League (WSL) football one day."
James replaces John Donoghue who left the role along with goalkeeping/assistant coach, Chris Stygal. Donoghue, assisted by Stygal, had taken control of firstteam affairs last summer.
Elite women and girls manager Tracy Doe expressed Albion's gratitude to John and Chris for their efforts throughout the 2013-14 campaign. She told seagulls.co.uk: "On behalf of the club, I would like to thank both John and Chris for all their hard work over the past season.
"They both brought so much professionalism to managing the senior set-up and I wish them all the very best for the future."
