London Bees coach Sian Osmond will take temporary charge of the FA Women’s Championship side until the end of the season.

Osmond has been with the Bees for five years and previously led their development teams, before joining the First Team coaching staff in 2018. She has also previously led the Barnet FC Elite Development Programme at The Hive London.

Osmond told londonbeesfc.com: “I would firstly like to thank Lee Burch for everything he achieved during his time with the club, it was a pleasure to work with him and I wish him nothing but my best wishes for his future, where I am sure he will go onto further successes. My aim is to now continue on the foundations that have been laid so far this season and give us every chance of winning as many matches as possible.

“We have an extremely talented group of girls in our squad, and I have full faith that we can have a strong finish to the season. I would like to thank the club for putting their faith in me and together with the backroom staff I will be working tirelessly to ensure we can achieve our aims in the remaining matches for the season.”

Osmond’s first match in caretaker charge is away to Crystal Palace this Sunday.
