Scott Booth has been appointed as head coach of Women’s Super League side Birmingham City Women after leaving Glasgow City.
Booth, 49, has signed a three-year contract, taking over from Carla Ward – who helped the Blues secure their WSL status on the final day of the season despite a one-point deduction before joining rivals Aston Villa.
He will join the club after serving his notice period with Glasgow City, having guided them to six Scottish Women’s Premier League titles.
“I am thrilled to have been named as the club’s head coach,” he said. “Birmingham City has a proud history in the women’s game, and I am looking forward to writing the next chapter.
“After six years in Glasgow, I felt now was the right time for a new challenge, with the opportunity here and the timing that allows for a full pre-season being something that could not be ignored.
“It will be an honour to lead the team at both St. Andrew’s and on the road in the league, along with the cup competitions in which Blues have a tradition of success.
“I am excited to start working within the existing infrastructure and building a side that the supporters can be proud of. After a season where the fans have been limited to following from home, rewarding their loyal support with something to shout about is vitally important.”
