Vicky Jepson has been appointed Spurs Women’s assistant coach, having previously spent more than a decade with Liverpool.

FA Female Development Coach of the Year in 2015,  Jepson worked with England U-17s at the 2018 Euros and became Liverpool manager four months after stepping into the assistant’s role.

Jepson told tottenhamhotspur.com: “I’m really excited about my new role – I’m refreshed, refocused and ready to hit the ground running at this fantastic club. I have a good working relationship with Rehanne [Skinner] through her previous work in the England national set-up, where we communicated regularly about players during my time at Liverpool, and I know she’s got an incredible passion for driving things forward at this club, so I’m delighted to be a part of that and to be working with her on this journey at Spurs. By working as an assistant to Rehanne, I’m looking forward to being able to focus more on the coaching side of the game and helping to get the best out of our players on a daily basis.”

Head Coach Rehanne Skinner commented: “I am really pleased to have Vicky on board. We have known each other a long time in various roles internationally and domestically and I have always admired her work ethic and commitment to the development of the game. She has had significant experience in both player development and in the WSL through her roles at Liverpool that I knew would make her a fantastic asset to our team and the journey we are on at Spurs. Vicky has an excellent knowledge of the game and I am looking forward to working with her.”
