Arsenal Ladies Appoint Shelley Kerr

Arsenal Ladies Appoint Shelley Kerr

Arsenal Ladies have today announced Shelley Kerr as their new manager. Kerr's appointment follows the departure of Laura Harvey to Seattle Reign. Kerr was previously manager of the Scotland U-19 side and has handled Gunners mainstays Jen Beattie and Kim Little in recent years.

A former Scotland international with 59 caps for her country, the 43-year-old also has extensive coaching experience at club level with Spartans in the Scottish Women`s Premier League. She was awarded the prestigious UEFA Pro Licence in January 2013.

Shelley said of the appointment: "I`m extremely excited to be taking up the position of Arsenal Ladies manager. Arsenal have been at the forefront of the women`s game for as long as I can remember and it`s a real honour to join the setup. I`m inheriting a great group of players and I look forward to working with them all to bring further success to the Club in the seasons ahead.'

Arsenal Ladies General Manager Vic Akers added: "We are extremely pleased to have confirmed Shelley as the new Arsenal Ladies manager. She has fantastic experience at club and international level and all the qualities needed to succeed at Arsenal. On behalf of everyone at Arsenal Football Club, I would like to welcome Shelley to the Club."

Arsenal seem to have quite deliberately gone for a manager with a good developmental history with the likes of Faye White, Jayne Ludlow and Julie Fleeting fading into the background in favour of some talented young players. She'll take charge of Arsenal's pre season from Monday as the girls prepare for March's Champions League quarter final against ASD Torres of Italy.
