Arsenal have announced that Shelley Kerr will step down from her position as Arsenal Ladies manager after next weekend’s FA Women’s Cup Final against Everton.
Shelley will be looking to defend the FA Women’s Cup next weekend when they face Everton. Kerr led the Gunners to an FA Women’s Cup and Continental Cup double in 2013, in her debut season with Arsenal.
Kerr announced her decision to resign following today’s (Sunday) 2-0 WSL defeat to Bristol Academy, which is the team’s third consecutive loss in the league.
Arsenal are currently bottom of the English FA Women’s Super League division 1.
Shelley Kerr commented on www.arsenal.com: “I’ve had a fantastic 16 months with Arsenal, but feel this is the right time to step aside.
“It’s been a privilege to manage one of the leading sides in the women’s game, and to work with so many talented players. I would like to thank the club for that opportunity, and hope to bring my spell with Arsenal to a successful close on Sunday, with the defence of the FA Cup.”
