Liverpool FC Women’s manager Vicky Jepson has left the club after more than a decade of various roles with the Reds.
Jepson, who was appointed manager in October 2018, said: “It’s with a heavy heart that my time has come to an end with Liverpool Football Club; the place I love and have been lucky enough to call home for over a decade.
“Over the years I have been fortunate to work across the entire pathway at this club. During this time, I’ve seen so many youth players go on to wear the first team red shirt, which fills me with immense pride. It’s been a privilege to have contributed to their careers.
“For now, I’ll be taking some time out with family, but I’m excited and looking forward to my next challenge in the world of football.
Assistant manager Amber Whiteley will assume the role of Interim Manager as the search for a new First Team Manager gets underway.
The LFC Women’s board paid tribute to Jepson’s contribution to the club and the wider women’s game.
“Vicky’s legacy here will be the thousands of young girls both around Liverpool and internationally whose talent and love for the game flourished under her guidance.
“The football pathway for girls on Merseyside, through our Academy and Regional Training Club, is a hugely positive one and Vicky has played a massive part in that. Her contribution to the Women’s first team set up and leading the section through tough times is appreciated.
“Now is the time for a fresh direction for us both and we will offer Amber every support as interim
manager as we start the search for a permanent replacement.”
