Jens Scheuer is leaving his position as Brighton & Hove Albion women’s head coach by mutual consent after only a few months.

Scheuer leaves with immediate effect, and Amy Merricks supported by Perry Northeast, will take interim charge for the Women’s Super League match at Chelsea on Wednesday.

Technical director David Weir said: “Together with Jens we’ve not reached this decision lightly, and while we appreciate he has given his all in the role this feels like the right step forward for all parties involved.

“We would like to thank Jens for his efforts and, on behalf of everyone at the club, we wish him well for the future.”
