Carla leaving Blues post
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 16 May 2021
 
Birmingham City has announced that the Club has accepted the resignation of Blues Women Head Coach Carla Ward.
 
Ward took over as Head Coach in August of last year and in her first campaign managing in the Barclays FA Women's Super League, secured Blues' top flight status with an 11th-place finish.
 
Blues General Manager Sarah Westwood said: "I would like to put on record my thanks to Carla for her efforts and dedication to the position throughout the season.
 
"It has been a challenging year given the absence of Bluenoses from any of our fixtures, with Carla galvanising the players and staff to achieve what nobody outside of the Football Club deemed possible.
 
"We respect her decision and wish her all the best for the future."
 
Ward said: "When I walked through the door last August, with the opportunity to manage in the BFAWSL for the first time, I couldn't have predicted what the next year would look like. It's been some journey and one I'm immensely proud of.
 
"I've been so fortunate to work with a group of players who have delivered every single day, taught me so much and are a credit to the Club and the BFAWSL.
 
"This year will live with me forever, from our first league win at Reading, to reaching the FA Cup semi final and the late goals that secured our safety.
 
"All fantastic memories that have been made possible by this unbelievable group of players, and ultimately we achieved what many people said we couldn't.
 
"I'll be forever grateful for the opportunity and I leave this Football Club a better person and a better leader.
 
"Lastly, the fans. They may not have been able to enjoy the journey with us but we've heard them every step of the way. Even those who have been critical of us at times, I can't thank you all enough.
 
"This Football Club is blessed with some unbelievable people and I wish them all the best for the future."
 
Ward will continue to fulfil her duties, up to and including this Sunday's Vitality Women's FA Cup Fifth Round tie against Southampton FC Women at the SportNation.bet Stadium (Damson Park).
