Birmingham City Women FC is delighted to announce Holly Pickett as their new Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Pickett moves from Oxford United, where she was Academy Head of Sports Science. She replaces Carl Green, who has left the club to join Orlando Pride.
Holly's role at Oxford was wide ranging and vitally important. She created and managed the sports science provision for the club's Under-9s to Under-23 and she led the Under-18s and Under-23s daily sports science duties, including pitch-based sessions, GPS analysis, and planning of training with coaching staff.
The strategy put in place has proved to be a successful one as the Under-18s have won their league title this season, for the first time in twelve years.
Holly, who is a UEFA B qualified coach, also worked closely with the first team and their Head of Physical Performance during her five years at Oxford.
27-year-old Holly is a well known person within the women's game, having spent most of her playing career at Oxford United. She helped the U's win the Southern Region League title, as well as two League Cup triumphs in successive seasons, and she was also a member of the Oxford team which won the South West Combination title in 2012-13 and knocked Premier League side Newcastle Utd of the FA Women's Cup at the Kassam Stadium, eventually going out to Everton in the last sixteen.
Oxford were founder members of WSL 2 in 2014 and Holly played regularly in each of their four years in the league, before they returned to the FA Women's National League at the start of this season following the formation of the FA Women's Championship.
The last few weeks have seen a lot of upheaval in the management and coaching staff at Birmingham City, following Marc Skinner's decision to step down as manager in January to take charge of Orlando Pride. Former Chile and Peru national coach Marta Tejedor was appointed in his place and the Blues currently sit in fourth place in the FA WSL table.
