Oxtoby steps down

City sends their best wishes to Tanya Oxtoby as she today steps down from her role as Bristol City Women Manager.

The Australian had been on maternity leave since January 2021 and, following the birth of her son in March, she has spent the rest of the year to date away from the game.

Oxtoby arrived in the West Country in the summer of 2018 and in her first season in charge she guided the Robins to their highest Women’s Super League points tally (25) and table position (6th) in recent years.

Bristol City CEO Richard Gould said: “On behalf of everyone associated with Bristol City I would like to thank Tanya for her service to the club over the last three-and-a-half years. We all wish Tanya, her partner and baby boy Albie the best of luck for the future.”

Oxtoby said: “The last three years have been an amazing journey, full of highs and lows, with so many lessons learnt along the way. However, this feels like the right time to part ways with the club, as we both start new chapters.

“To every board member, staff member and player who came through the door during my time, thank you!

“You have all made me a better manager, coach, leader and more importantly a better person. To our die-hard supporters, thank you for always sticking by us through thick and thin, your support has and will always be the backbone of this club.

“I wish the club every success in the future, and, for one last time, COYR.”
