Birmingham City Women have announced that Marta Tejedor has left the club by mutual agreement, as the Blues seek fresh impetus for the remainder of the season.

In a statement on their website the club said: ‘Charlie Baxter will step up from First Team Coach to Head Coach on an interim basis as the Club embarks on the recruitment process for a permanent replacement.

Former Chile and Peru national coach Tejedor was appointed Manager in January 2019 and helped guide Blues a fourth place finish in the Barclays FA WSL, with a record points total.

Currently Blues are second from bottom in the table and our recent league results were a major factor for this change.

However, with nine WSL games still remaining and an FA Cup Quarter-Final to come, there is still plenty left to play for.’

Baxter has been with Blues since 2015, was an integral part of the coaching team when Blues reached the FA Cup Final in 2017 and is to start his UEFA A coaching licence in April.
