Fulham Football Club Women have appointed Charlie McCarthy as Head Coach for the 18/19 campaign. McCarthy will start his role immediately as the squad prepares for their season in the London and South East Regional Women’s League.
McCarthy’s experience runs the gamut, having coached at Brunel University, Millwall Lionesses and, most noticeably, Lewes FC Women’s, in addition to working with players at the Women’s Super League and international levels.
Ready for the challenge, McCarthy said: “I am extremely happy with this decision and I’m excited to get started with my new role as Head Coach. My aim this season is to work with the current squad, along with a few key additions, and make an instant impact towards building a successful side with a winning mentality. This league will present us with a variety of challenges, but if we work hard and get things right from the start, I don’t see why we can’t be challenging for the trophy.”
McCarthy joins Assistant Coach Matt Weller who has been with FFCF Women for the past four seasons. Steve Jaye, Football Development & Education Manager at FFCF, said: “Charlie has an exceptional background in the Women’s game and will be a great asset for the team. We’re excited that Matt will be staying on as Assistant Coach – he’s been with us for years and will play an invaluable role in our success moving forwards.”
Fulham FC Women are in pre-season training at Fulham Training Ground Motspur Park. The season gets under way on Sunday 19th August, away against Whyteleafe Ladies FC.
