Millwall Lionesses are delighted to announce the appointment of Dan Mlinar as their new First Team Manager.
Mlinar has been with Millwall for seven years, starting out as first team coach alongside Aiden Boxall and Kay Cossington. As Reserve Team Manager, and more recently Centre Manager of the Girls Centre of Excellence, he has played a crucial part in the development of many of the Lionesses' current first team squad.
Dan managed the Lionesses in a caretaker capacity for the final four games of the FA WSL 2 campaign and is confident that he can improve on the team's eighth place finish this season.
Speaking about his appointment, Mlinar said: "Millwall Lionesses are an ambitious club and we want to improve in every area. I have already had lots of meetings with the board about moving the club forward and I believe that we have the staff and players in place to do that."
The Lionesses are also delighted to confirm that Millwall legend Les Briley will be staying with the club in his role as Technical Director.
There was a further boost for Millwall this week with the confirmation that influential defender Naomi Cole will be staying with the club for the 2015 FA WSL season.
An England Under-23 international and World University Games champion with Great Britain, Naomi was a mainstay of the Lionesses defence in 2014, missing just one game all season, through suspension.
She also finished the season as joint top scorer for Millwall, scoring four times. Amazingly all four of those goals were scored from the penalty spot, leaving Naomi with a lethal 100% record for spot kicks last season.
Cole re-joined the Lionesses from Chelsea Ladies to the club's debut season in the FA WSL, having previously enjoyed a successful loan spell with the club in 2010-11.
Primarily a right back, Naomi comfortably made the switch to centre half for much of this season and also captained the team, following the mid-season injury to club captain Dionne Lennon.
Mlinar has continued his preparations for next season by fighting off the attentions of a number of clubs to secure the services of goalkeeper Sarah Quantrill.
A highly rated shot stopper, Sarah was a Super League title winner with Liverpool in 2013 and also spent time with Arsenal and Chelsea, before joining Millwall ahead of the season just completed.
The 24-year-old was a virtual ever present for Millwall in 2014, starting 20 of their league and cup matches. Not only did Sarah prevent countless goalscoring opportunities last season but her vision and quick distribution made her a key component in her side's attacking arsenal.
To sponsor Naomi or Sarah or any of the Lionesses team for the 2015 campaign please contact Lionesses General Manager Charley Mitten at firstname.lastname@example.org.
