Everton FC have announced the departure of women’s team manager Willie Kirk, who had been with the club since December 2018.

Kirk told evertonfc.com“I am thankful to the club for the opportunity that they gave me three years ago. During that time, we have made tremendous progress both on and off the pitch and I leave the club in a better place. Without a doubt, the highlight was the FA Cup final less than a year ago, a memory that will stay with me forever.

“Unfortunately, this season has not started the way we anticipated, due to a very tough opening fixture list and the re-building of a squad with eight new players.

“I have no doubt the talented squad that I leave behind can go on to have a very bright future.”

Everton say they are aiming to have a new manager ahead of the next match away to Leicester City in the Continental Cup on 3 November.
