Ipswich Town Women have appointed Joe Sheehan as their new manager until the end of the season after Carla Dickinson stepped down following the Tractor Girls’ 3-0 East Anglian derby defeat to Norwich City last week.
He took charge of his first game last Sunday as the Blues progressed to the semi-final of the Suffolk FA Women’s Cup, beating Brantham Ladies 14-0 at home.
In October 2017, he joined Town as lead coach of the Women’s Regional Under 21 Academy set-up and has been integral to the growth of women’s football at Ipswich Town.
This season under his stewardship, Town’s Under 21 side have recorded memorable victories against the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.
He also holds a role within the Essex FA Regional Talent Centre and has been responsible for the development of many England youth internationals.
