Tony is new Arsenal boss
 Women's Football News 4 Jun 2009
Tony is new Arsenal boss - 4 Jun 2009 - Women's Football NewsTony Gervaise is to succeed Vic Akers as manager of Arsenal.
The Scot joined the club last summer as Academy Director and doubled up as Akers' assistant following the departure of Emma Hayes to the United States. Gervaise previously held the position of Scottish FA Head of Youth Development in women's football and was also Head Coach for Scotland at a variety of youth levels.
Now the 54-year-old will take the top job at Arsenal as Vic Akers steps down after 22 years at the helm.
"Tony Gervaise is coming in and will take the job on," Akers told www.arsenal.com. "I am sure he will do an excellent job.
"He has been with me a year so far, which we had planned when he came in to be Academy Director. We planned on him being around me as an assistant and as a coach. He moves on now to be first team coach.
"Sadly it looks like we are going to lose [Assistant First Team Coaches] Marcus Bignot and Laura Harvey, so we will be looking for an assistant to Tony. By the start of the season we'll have everything in place."
Gervaise admits he has some big shoes to fill after succeeding Akers but he is confident that Arsenal can maintain their position at the top of the women's game.
"Vic has had a unique time and he has worked tremendously hard at that," he told www.arsenal.com. "To start from where he came from and deliver what he has matches the very best. To win 32 trophies in his time as manager is just amazing.
"What the Club has achieved is fantastic and we're now moving forward into a new, exciting time. We lost a lot of senior players last season but the squad maintained their standards and took it one better by winning the 'treble'.
"It was an immense achievement and we will take that forward and use that enthusiasm, hunger and drive. The mentality at Arsenal is first class and it's onwards and upwards as far as I'm concerned. I look forward to it immensely."
