Women's Football News
The Football Association of Wales is delighted to announce that the new Wales National Women's Teams Manager is Jayne Ludlow.
She replaces Jarmo Matikainen who announced earlier this year that he would be stepping down from the job after four years in charge, following their FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying campaign to take up a position with the Finnish FA.
Jayne's contribution to women's football, both for club and country, has been immense. She has been an inspiration to the current women's senior and intermediate squads and was described by previous Wales manager Jarmo Matikainen as the best women's player Wales has ever produced.
Jayne also represented Arsenal for 13 years and remains Arsenal's all-time record goalscorer. She is still the only player ever to have won the FA Players' Player of the Year award on three occasions.
Born in Llwynypia, Jayne has played for the likes of Barry Town Ladies, Millwall Lionesses, Southampton Saints and Arsenal. At club level she won the FA Women's Premier League National Division on nine occasions and the FA Women's Cup on occasions.
In 2006-07 she was a member of the Arsenal team that won the UEFA Women's Cup, captaining them in the Final against Umea IK, and also helped lead the Gunners to the first ever FA WSL title in 2011.
She won her first international cap in 1996 aged just 17 and went on to play 61 times for her country, scoring 19 goals before announcing her international retirement two years ago.
Recently, Jayne has been manager and director of Reading FC Women, taking the helm for their debut season in FA WSL 2, where they currently sit in third place. She has also been involved with coaching the Wales Under-16 side and this week named the Under-17 squad for their UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship First Qualifying Round group in Latvia.
