Watford FC Ladies is pleased to welcome Armand Kavaja to the club in the role of Head Coach.
The UEFA-'A' coach joins, having previously worked with the Golden Girls in 2016.
The coach has experience working in an elite environment, in his current role as an Academy Coach at Watford FC. Kavaja will work closely with both the First and Development squads, as he ensures the Hornets have a competitive finish to the current campaign.
Kavaja will be assisted by Clinton Lancaster - who steps up from the position of Development Team Manager. Lancaster, who previously coached the first team at Crystal Palace, will provide a much needed link between the club's First and Development teams for the continued future.
UEFA-‘B' qualified Ilirjan Memaj - who also holds the outfield ‘A'-Licence - joins in the role of Goalkeeping Coach, working closely with both the shot-stoppers and outfield players on training nights and at matches.
Spanish coach Pablo Mandiola will also assist in the role of First Team coach, having recently finished the UEFA-‘A' licence course.
Sarah Lewis steps up from her role as Development Team Assistant, becoming Head Coach of the Hornets' Under-20 side.
The club confirms that Keith Boanas, Alberto Kurti and Tony O'Neill have departed, and thanks them for their commitment over the Spring Series and the early period of the 2017-18 season.
Kavaja's first game in charge of the club will be on Sunday 7th January, when they play at home to WSL 2 leaders Doncaster Rovers Belles.
In the meantime, Watford have completed the signing of Samantha Hallsworth from Swindon Town.
The Wiltshire side's captain joins ready for the second half of the season, having featured in all but one of her former team's games in the FA WPL Southern Division so far this campaign.
Hallsworth previously featured for Forest Green Rovers, making her first team debut at only 16 as a winger. The opportunity to join Swindon presented itself last season, and she was rewarded for her hard work by being made club captain at the start of this campaign.
A versatile central player, Hallsworth can play in either midfield or defence and is looking forward to her time with the Golden Girls this year and beyond.
