Arsenal Football Club has announced that Laura Harvey will take over as manager of Arsenal Ladies, with Tony Gervaise stepping down after eight months in charge of the Gunners to continue his role at the Club as Academy Director.
Laura, assistant academy director, joined the Arsenal Ladies set up in the summer of 2008 as first team coach working alongside Gervaise and now General Manager Vic Akers, after which time she also fulfilled the role of Reserve team manager.
29-year-old Laura is assistant coach for the England Under-19s, having previously worked at Under-15 and Under-17 level. On a domestic front Laura's last club was Birmingham City, where across a six-year period she took on numerous roles including centre of excellence director and first team manager.
Laura told www.arsenal.com: "It's a really proud moment for me. In women's football, especially domestically, it doesn't come any bigger than Arsenal. When you set out to coach and you know this is your dream and your love, you want to make it the best it can possibly be and in my eyes it doesn't get much bigger than this.
"I'm looking forward to my new role also the challenge of taking on the responsibility of the team, which starts with our FA Women's Cup quarter final fixture against Doncaster on Sunday."
