Doncaster Rovers Belles are delighted to announce the appointment of Glen Harris as Head Coach.
The search for a new Head Coach was spearheaded by Julie Chipchase and Sheila Edmunds. The club had a range of excellent candidates including applicants from Italy, Belgium, Croatia and the UK and candidates with experience of the FAWSL and international football. When selecting the best candidate the club wanted somebody with experience of women's football who could add tremendous value to the development of our players and the development of our female coaches. Harris stood out in terms of ability, experience and approach to training. In addition, he is a familiar name in the FAWSL as well as to many of the club's players.
Harris, formerly of Lincoln Ladies, has accepted the role ahead of the start of the 2015 FAWSL 2 season and will look to seal promotion to the top tier in one of the two promotion spots. Following Lincoln's inception in 1998 Harris had been a constant figure, managing the club until 2004 and then taking over again in 2011. During his second spell at Lincoln, Harris secured a fifth placed finish in FAWSL 1 with the Lady Imps.
Since his departure from Lincoln Ladies in October 2012, Harris has been the Technical Director at the Lincoln Centre of Excellence and has overseen a highly successful period for the Centre's Under 17 side who won their league last season whilst seeing a number of players advance into senior football.
On getting the coveted job, Harris said: "I'm really honoured to be asked to be the new Doncaster Rovers Belles Head Coach. It's a well established women's club with a great history in the game and it's an honour to be a part of the Belles.
"I'm excited to be back involved in the FAWSL after a couple of years out", he added, "Although I've been involved with the Lincoln Centre of Excellence since then. I'm really looking forward to the start of the season and bringing the success to the Belles that they greatly deserve."
Director of Football, Julie Chipchase, commented: "Glen has experience at the top level of the women's game, knows many of our players and brings an impressive footballing philosophy to the Belles. I am particularly excited to be working with Glen on the next stages of developing our younger players and academy structure."
