West Ham United have appointed former Lionesses’ assistant coach and Tottenham Hotspur boss Rehanne Skinner as manager.

Skinner led Spurs to their highest ever finish in the WSL, finishing fifth in the 2021/22 campaign.

She told West Ham TV: “I’m delighted to be joining West Ham United. There have been a lot of conversations between myself and senior figures at the club around what the plans are moving forward, and I’m just really excited at the prospect of leading the team.

“I think the big thing for me is that the club is well established and there’s been some fantastic work done before now. Now we are at a stage where we really want to drive that forward and progress on that previous work.”

Vice-Chair and director of the women’s team Board, Baroness Brady said: “I am delighted to be able to confirm the appointment of Rehanne Skinner as our new women’s team manager.

“Everyone at West Ham United takes real pride in our role as an equity leader and, having recently restructured the women’s Board, we are proud to welcome Rehanne as our first female manager in the Barclays WSL.

“Her vast experience, knowledge and proven track record in the women’s game is hugely impressive. We feel that Rehanne is the perfect candidate to lead our team into the new WSL season and a key part of our renewed focus on growing and developing our women’s team.”
