The hunt for the new West Ham Ladies manager has begun with the club advertising the position left vacant since Mark Saunderson’s departure last month. Since Saunderson’s resignation, the Hammers have secured a County Cup final date with local rivals Barking at Hornchurch FC on April 17 and been on a morale-boosting run of three victories in four games, under the joint management of director of football Julia Setford and coach Steve Spence.
In an advertisement, the club said: “We are looking for an experienced first team manager and are actively seeking ambitious applicants to lead and build on our success and further develop our players for greater achievements. “The successful candidate will be responsible for team selection, co-ordinating training and attracting new players to the club.
“We play in the FA Women’s Premier League and our matches are played on Sunday afternoons and we train two evenings per week. “The manager must be a committed person who is able to manage a team of young ladies who love football. “Please note, this is a voluntary position. If you are the one for us please send your CV to vacancies.whulfc@hotmail. com.â€
The Ladies, who play their home games at Thurrock FC, are away at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. They will then travel to Lewes for another league game before their County Cup final. Read our exclusive blog at westhamladies.blogspot.co.uk
