BRIDGWATER United Women have announced that manager Jamie Sherwood has stepped down from his post with immediate effect.

Sherwood leaves on the back of two convincing wins in October; 3-0 against Plymouth Argyle and 9-0 at home to Keynsham Town.

The side currently sits in third place in the Women's National League table as well.


Speaking about his decision to step down, Sherwood said now is the right time to leave.

"For me, it is with a heavy heart but now is the right time to move on.

"They are a superb, honest and hardworking group who have been an absolute pleasure to work with, I will miss being on the touchline and I will miss them all,” he said.

Sherwood, who is in his second spell with the Club, he use to manage Yeovil before the transition and was the first manager for Bridgwater United in this new project.

The Club’s CEO Adam Murry said it is difficult news but he respects what Jamie has done for the club.

“This is a very difficult decision to receive for everyone involved, not least because I have the utmost respect for what Jamie has achieved in the game and at the club.”

“On behalf of everyone at the Club, the Board and personally, I would like to thank Jamie and wish him every success in the future," Murry said.

Bridgwater have a match later today, away to Portsmouth in the league.

Current assistant manager Jamie Harris will take interim charge of all first team fixtures beginning with the match later today.
