Liverpool Ladies are delighted to announce the appointment of Scott Rogers as their new manager.

Rogers, who has worked as the Reds assistant manager under Matt Beard for the past three years, will now take the reins with immediate effect.

On the appointment, Rogers said: “I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to manage Liverpool Ladies.

“Having worked under the stewardship of Matt for the past three seasons, I know what a great club this is and cannot wait to get started.

“We have had a tremendous run and although we were unfortunate with injuries last season we have a young, hungry squad and I am confident we will be competitive again next season.”

Ian Ayre, the club’s chief executive officer, added: “It has been an incredible story for our Ladies team during the past few years.

“Winning back-to-back titles and qualifying for the Champions League two years running has been a great achievement.

“We are delighted to now appoint Scott as the new manager and I’m looking forward to next season to carry on with the great progress that’s been made to date.”
