Brighton sack Melissa Phillips after “the results and performances have not been at the level we had expected,” said Technical director David Weir.
The 36-year-old took over the Seagulls last April, when the team was last in the Women’s Super League and in the danger of relegation. The American coach managed to turn the curve and avoid relegation. In the current season, Brighton are currently on the 10th place with 11 points, 3 above the relegation zone.
Mikey Harris, supported by Owen Fisher, will take charge on the interim basis. The 39-year-old moves from Brighton’s academy, where he worked with U21 and U18 team.
