City Women appoint Chiavetta as Youth Development Technical Director

Bristol City Women is delighted to announce that Marco Chiavetta will undertake the role of Youth Development Technical Director and First Team Assistant Coach with immediate effect.

Chiavetta joins the Bristol City Women backroom staff having previously worked with Bristol Rovers and he has stated that the direction the club is moving in, combined with the focus on developing players from within was a major factor in his decision to join the club. 

“The biggest thing that attracted me to come to Bristol City Women was the infrastructure already in place at the club and the direction the club is moving”, he continued, “the club also places a big emphasis on making sure youth players have an opportunity to make it to the first team.

“It’s really important for clubs such as Bristol City Women to have a successful player pathway, the club has a history of producing talent within the youth age groups and the club have shown they want homegrown players at first team level as well as internationally.

“I think that is so important, because you don’t want to be a club that always relies on acquiring all of your players from other clubs. It’s good to have a target for players within the youth system, to show that if they’re good enough they can make that next step and Tanya has shown that players do have a chance to play at the top level for the club."

“Women’s Football is in a great place - the quality and standard of the game is improving year on year and I think it is only going to get better.

“The infrastructure that is now in place in the game allows clubs to create their own player pathways and with the Women’s Super League being fully professional, it allows girls to fulfil their dreams.

“As a coach I feel it is really important to be adaptable, because you will have to respond to each player differently, one way of coaching that’ll work for one player won’t necessarily work for another so you’ve got to be able to work with different people. 

“You’ve also got to get the buy-in and trust from players, so they have an understanding of why you’re coaching and advising them in a particular way in order to get the best out of them on the pitch.”
