Scott Booth has signed a three-year contract with Birmingham City Women and will join the Blues after serving notice with Glasgow City.

Booth told BCFC.com“I am thrilled to have been named as the club’s head coach. 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.”

Blues Women’s General Manager, Sarah Westwood, added: “We are delighted to bring Scott to the Club and are really looking forward to working with him. At such a crucial time for Women’s football in England, Scott will bring a winning mentality and exciting style of play to Birmingham City which we know our supporters will enjoy.”

Booth will officially begin work on July 26, seven days after his new charges are back in for initial testing week.
