Yeovil Town Ladies first team manager Sarah Lawler has has announced her plans to step down from her position with the club. The former player, who has a ten year association with the Ladies side, will take charge of her final match against Watford Ladies tomorrow evening (kick-off 6.00p.m. at Sherborne Town's Raleigh Grove ground) and will be devoting her time to a new role with the Football Association. Sarah has been recently appointed as the FA Regional Elite Women’s Coach Developer for the South-West.
In Sarah's place comes Jamie Sherwood, who has only recently arrived at the club as former manager of Cardiff City Ladies. Having initially taken up a post as a first team coach, he will now become First Team Manager, with the existing backroom staff of Chris White (assistant manager) and Pete Amos (head coach) being maintained.
Sarah's legacy as a manager will be that she took Yeovil Town Ladies back up into the Women's Premier League at the first time of asking, and then was part of the club's management committee who prepared their successful application to the FA Women's Super League. When she departs after Saturday's game, she will leave a team sat in a comfortable upper-mid-table position during their first season at the new level. There's very little doubt that she will be welcomed back to Yeovil in her new FA role during the future.
