Leigh takes charge at City
 Women's Football News 9 Aug 2007
Leigh takes charge at City - 9 Aug 2007 - Women's Football NewsIt's all change at Manchester City for the season ahead as far as the coaching staff is concerned.
Leigh Wood steps up as First Team manager after having a successful last season in earning the Reserves promotion to the FA Premier Reserve League Midlands/North Division One, being pipped to the title on goal difference by Preston North End.
Leigh, who holds a UEFA B Licence, is currently a Sports Development Coach for Tameside District Council. He has been quick to build a strong team to support him with Chris Twohig as Assistant Manager.
John Lucus, who was with the Reserves towards the end of last season, is appointed as Head Physio and Fitness Instructor whilst Jenna Gilbert, Martin Williamson and Tom O'Connell have come on board as Physiotherapist and Sports Masseurs respectively.
Taking up the challenge of Reserve Team Manager is Ryan Matthews, who spent last season with the under-16s and is looking forward to the challenges ahead as he prepares for his first season in open age football. Ryan will be assisted by Jane Clark, who has had eleven great seasons at the club as a player and club captain.
Leigh commented: "I have a great team of both players and support staff, all committed to improving City's fortunes this season through a mixture of teamwork, sports science, fun and of course some good football thrown in for good measure. I am really looking forward to the challenges of first team football in what is always a highly competitive league.
"We have re-signed our experienced players like captain Lindsay Savage, Nicola Twohig, Charlotte Farrell, Katie Brussell, Alex Merrill, Kelly McLellan, Laura Gligan and Levi Wensley, so we have a great spine to the team to build around."
Pre-season training is now well underway, with the girls commenting that they have never been fitter. To round off the preparations the whole open age squad is attending a personal fitness, training and nutrition education day at Manchester City's Academy. Then it's on to the opening game of the season at home to Sunderland on 19th August.
