Kirk departs Bristol City Women

Bristol City Women can confirm that head coach Willie Kirk will leave the club with immediate effect.

Kirk, who has been in charge of the Vixens since April 2015, said: “This has been a very difficult decision to make, but I feel after three years at the club, it is time to seek a new challenge.

"I have loved working with all the staff and players throughout my time here and trying to play a brand of football that was worthy of the fantastic support that we always received."

Kirk oversaw an eighth-place finish in the WSL1 2017/18 season, after guiding the club back to the top-flight and reaching the quarter-finals of the Women's FA Cup in 2017.

The club would like to thank Willie for his hard work and wish him the best in his future endeavours.
