Preston appoint Luke as manager - 9 Jun 2015 - Women's Football NewsPreston North End Women are delighted to announce the appointment of Luke Swindlehurst as the club's new manager. 
Swindlehurst comes in to replace previous manager Luke Podmore, who stepped down due to his playing commitments with North West Counties side Stockport Town FC.
The 30-year-old will be in his second spell as manager after being in charge in the 2011-12 season and returns with a fantastic CV, which includes spells at Liverpool Ladies and Sheffield FC Ladies.

Speaking about his appointment, Luke said: "I'm delighted to be back at Preston and have a clear vision for how we will be moving forward into next season.
"I've been fortunate enough over the last few seasons to have gained experience and success with Liverpool and Sheffield, Both of which were excellent environments to coach and develop personally.
"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Matt Beard (Liverpool Ladies FC) and Helen Mitchell (Sheffield FC Ladies) and players at both clubs for the experiences I've accumulated.
"Having previously managed Preston, I have a very good understanding of how the club currently works and the areas which we will look to strengthen. My personal objective is to build a team that can compete for every competition and that process will be an enjoyable challenge.

"The key element to success will be creating the right environment for our players to develop and I'm confident that myself and new coaching team will be able to do that. I've been very impressed with how our committee have already moved very quickly to execute some of the requirements needed to push us forward."
Luke has already been busy bringing in backroom staff and the new coaching team at Preston North End will include:
Chris Williams (Assistant Manager)
Elliot Hollings (First Team Coach)
Mark Partington (Goalkeeping Coach)
Tom Sellers (First Team Analyst)
Development Squad:
