Charlton announce change in structure
 Women's Football WPL South News - 9 Dec 2016
Charlton Athletic have announced that there will be a change in the club's structure for the future.
The club has issued the following statement on its website:
"The Charlton women's team can confirm it will merge its reserve and development teams and no longer field a squad to compete in the South East Counties Division 1 East with immediate effect.
The newly combined squad will be managed by current development team coach Luke Brown, who will replace Krasimir Korsachki, and will continue to compete in the FA Women's Premier League South Reserve Division. Luke has been at the club for more than three seasons and will also continue in his role supporting the RTC players as sports scientist.
Our reserve team squad will serve as a platform for our bright young talent to gain experience at a standard that will really test them, and give them the competitive learning opportunities they need to develop as players.
Other changes on the coaching and support staff side include the appointments of Sam Tomkins as head of strength and conditioning, replacing Padraig Horgan, and Ruth Tongue, who will be supporting all players as a nutritionist.
We would like to wish both Krasimir and Padraig all the best for their future endeavours within the game, and we thank them for the support they have given our players and the club.
It is a decision we have not made lightly, but one we feel is best for the players and the club in the long term.
We've been delighted with the progress our players have been making, right the way through from our under 10s and RTC players to our first team squad.
But above all, what has really impressed us is the speedy progression that a number of our development team players continue to make, with their transition in to senior football. Many of whom have already featured regularly this season within our reserve team.
We have a fantastic crop of young post 16 talent, who we feel have already proven to us in the short time of being involved in senior football that they are ready to compete at a higher level. This is credit to themselves, their previous coaches and their families.
As such, we feel now is a great opportunity to put long term plans in place for our post 16 talent, which our youngsters can also work towards.
We are committed to offering them a clear development pathway, where they can progress in to our future first team players. All whilst learning from The FA, and some of Europe's most successful women's clubs about the most effective operating models to develop female footballers.
We believe at the club that we are building the foundations for a long term vision. With our history in women's football, the players, coaches, support staff and fans who make up this great Charlton family, we are truly committed to taking the club back to where we belong.
No further comments will be made at this stage."
