Guiseley joint-manager Marcus Bignot has been appointed interim manager at Aston Villa Women.
The former Solihull Moors, Grimsby Town and Chester manager will continue in his role with Guiseley alongside Russ O’Neill.
He becomes interim boss at FA Women’s Super League side Villa despite the fact that head coach Gemma Davies is remaining in her role.
Bignot told the club’s website: “I am delighted to be able to help at such a progressive club in women’s football. It is also a great opportunity to mentor a talented young coaching group led by Gemma.”
Former England forward and current Villa Women sporting director Eni Aluko, who worked with Bignot in her time at Birmingham City Ladies, said: “Marcus is a very welcome addition to our club and has an enormous amount of experience in the game which we want to tap into.”
