Cambridge FC have appointed Jamie McKean as the new coach of the club’s women’s team for the 2020 season.
McKean has previously coached senior men’s and junior teams at the club and is already making plans to put in place a coaching structure to help build a strong women’s team while providing a clear pathway for up and coming teenage girls who play for Cambridge junior and youth teams.
“I’ve been part of Cambridge FC for the past eight and a half years – both playing and coaching across the senior and junior football ranks of the club,” he said.
“With three daughters, I’ve spent a number of years helping develop the junior girls’ team, and over the last two years, I’ve been working with Ricki Herbert (the club’s technical director) and others to implement a structure that supports player development.
“I want to help develop senior women’s players, helping all of them to improve and enjoy their game, while building the pathways for up-and-coming talented players.”
McKean, pictured with his daughters, replaces Andrew Taylor who this year completed four seasons as the club’s women’s coach.
An Everton fan, McKean has previously served on the club’s executive committee and in various volunteer roles.
