Carla Ward leaves Birmingham post at the end of the season after club’s board accepted her resignation.
The 37-year-old took over Birmingham City last summer. In her first season in the Women’s Super League, she just avoided relegation and finished 11th.
“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. I’ll be forever grateful for the opportunity and I leave this Football Club a better person and a better leader. This Football Club is blessed with some unbelievable people and I wish them all the best for the future,” Ward said.
