DENBIGH TOWN LADIES FC have unveiled their new manager this week.

Jordan Baker has stepped down from the role but will remain with the club as Head of Youth (girls).

As a result, Ellen Lawson, who has played for Denbigh Ladies since the team was formed some 12 years ago, has agreed to become new manager.

As well as being an experienced and well known senior player, Lawson has completed the Football leaders award, First Aid and will shortly complete her C licence.

She has coached girls for some time now and hopes, in the not too distant future, to continue her football journey and enroll on a B licence course.

Speaking to Denbigh Town FC's media team, Lawson said: "I know it is a big job but I have been part of the Denbigh Ladies set up since the outset and am exited and looking forward to the challenge. I know I wont be doing it alone and have the support of Carla and Elen and the rest of the Denbigh Town ladies as well as the committee and others in the back ground. "

Departing manager Baker, who stepped down from the role due to work commitments and wanting to spend more precious time with his 11-month-old son Theo, said: "I wish Ellen well. I will stay with Denbigh Town as Head of Youth (girls) as I strongly believe that, to have sustainability,we will need local girls to come through and play for the senior team. We have an ever increasing number of girls training here which is what I want."
