JODIE Williams has been appointed as head coach of Worcester City Women FC ahead of their new season that starts in September.

Williams is a UEFA B coach and has over a decade of experience in coaching women’s football, most recently with Wolverhampton Wanderers Women.

She took to Twitter to emphasise her excitement at getting the role:

Williams added: "I’m really excited to be joining Worcester City Women at such a time of growth for the female game and am looking forward to adding my experience and knowledge to what is already a great staff and a fantastic group of players.

"When the club presented their ambitions and plan to me, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of.”

The club underwent a restructure during the pandemic and are now a fully established football side, headed up by Executive Director Nicole Allison and business partner Mark Howard.

Worcester City Women FC will now administer all women’s teams from aged 16+ and will work side by side with the WCFC youth development structure for aged 16s and below, to ensure a transparent pathway for young girls and women.

The new restructure has been implemented to progress women’s football at the club and will enable the team to achieve their ambitious vision in the women's game.

Allison knows how experienced Williams is and explained that her ambitious nature matches the vision shared by the club.

"I am delighted we have been able to appoint someone of Jodie’s experience to the club," said Allison.

"She is a great leader, coach and person and will help to develop our players, coaches and staff across the whole pathway. She joins us with a great reputation and network in the game and her personal ambitions and values match the club’s perfectly."
