Huddersfield Town Women First Team Manager leaves his role

- Ashley Vickers has departed his role as Manager of Huddersfield Town Women
- Lee Harrison and Michael Emery also leave their positions at the Club
- Comments from Town Women Chairman David Mallin

Ashley Vickers has departed his role as Manager of Huddersfield Town Women.

After detailed discussions with the Club, Ashley felt it was the right time to part ways with Huddersfield Town Women.

The 33-year-old joined the Club in June 2013 before becoming Manager in November 2016. During that time, he helped Huddersfield Town Women to two promotions taking the Women from the fifth-tier of Women’s football to the third-tier.

The Women also had cup success under Ashley, winning the County Cup twice (2017 and 2018) and guiding the Women to the Fifth Round of the SSE Women’s FA Cup – the furthest they’ve ever progressed in the competition.

Assistant Manager Lee Harrison and Goalkeeping Coach Michael Emery have also left their positions at the Club.

Huddersfield Town Women’s Chairman David Mallin explained:

“I would first of all like to thank Ashley for the many years of hard work he’s put into the Club. Under his stewardship, Huddersfield Town Women have gone from strength-to-strength both on and off the pitch.

“He was an integral figure in driving the Club forward and his achievements have created a lot of fond memories for us.

“He also worked tirelessly with the day-to-day running of the Club, so I’d also like to thank him for that too.

“After long discussions with Ashley, we both came to the decision that this is the right time to part ways. I wish him, Lee Harrison and Michael Emery all the best for the future.”
