Ex-City forward replaces Nick Cushing in role
Gareth Taylor is the new Head Coach of Manchester City Women, the club confirmed on Thursday. The 47 year-old replaces Nick Cushing, who has taken up a new role with New York City FC.
Taylor played for the Blues for two seasons in the late nineties, making 53 appearances in total and scoring ten goals. He returned to the club in a coaching capacity in 2011, and has led City's Under-18s for the last three seasons.
“I’m absolutely delighted to have joined Manchester City Women and I’m extremely excited about the challenge ahead with a very talented group of players and staff who have enjoyed a lot of success in recent years”, Taylor said.
“I’m really honoured to have been appointed to this role and I can’t wait to get started with our preparations for another thrilling and competitive Barclays FA WSL season in 2020/21.
“I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with some great people within Manchester City and the Club’s Academy so far, but I’m absolutely relishing my new role within City Football Group and I’ll be giving everything I have to continue Manchester City’s success and growth in the women’s game.”
