Former Chester FC managerial target Neil Redfearn has been appointed as Liverpool Ladies’ new manager.
The ex-Leeds United boss had reportedly been on the cusp of taking over at the Vanarama National League North side following the departure of Marcus Bignot, but the deal fell through, with Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley taking the reins.
Redfearn takes up the role with the top-tier club having led Doncaster Rovers Belles to the FA WSL 2 championship last season. He told the Liverpool FC website:
“It is a massive privilege and real honour for me to have been appointed as manager of Liverpool Ladies. It is a team with big potential which should be challenging for trophies on a regular basis.
“Liverpool Football Club is a huge club and I have every confidence that we will be competing at the top end of the Women’s Super League this season. I am over the moon to have been given this opportunity and cannot wait to get started.”
