Oxtoby rewarded with new deal

Bristol City Women are delighted to announce that Tanya Oxtoby has signed a new contract.

Appointed in June 2018, Oxtoby led the Robins to a sixth-placed finish in the 2018/19 Women’s Super League – their highest league position in the club’s history with a record points tally of 25.

Her personal achievements were celebrated when the 37-year-old guided City unbeaten in September 2018 and January 2019, winning respective LMA Manager of the Month awards in what was her first experience in management.

Away from the pitch, Oxtoby continues to build a strong relationship with Chairman Mark Ashton and regularly discusses innovative coaching methods with Bristol City Head Coach Lee Johnson, to ensure the club maintains its progression in the top-flight of women’s football.

With the use of shared facilities, there is a real cohesion between the men and women’s teams; something Oxtoby is extremely grateful and excited about.

Oxtoby was appointed Bristol City Women Manager in the summer of 2018 (via JMPUK).

“First of all, I’m proud to have signed a new deal,” she said. “There’s been a massive positive change in the past 12 months, both on and off the field and I’m looking forward to the future.

“The new contract shows the faith the club have in me as a manager and it shows the collective vision we have.

“Having Mark Ashton as Chairman has allowed our relationship to grow with the men’s team and that enables us to share resources and knowledge which is hugely beneficial.

“The team have pushed on massively over the last season and our results are evidence to that. As we continue to work closely with Mark and Lee Johnson, it should allow us to flourish in the Barclays Women’s Super League.

City Women’s Chairman Mark Ashton commented: “I am delighted Tanya has agreed a new deal. Her commitment to the club gives us the stability we have with the men’s team.

“I’m thrilled with our working relationship and how she’s in frequent contact with Lee and his coaching staff. I’m now looking forward to a positive future for Tanya and the club as we continue to strengthen.”

Oxtoby’s side kick-off their 2019/20 WSL campaign tomorrow when they host Brighton & Hove Albion at Ashton Gate (September 7th, 3pm KO).
