Pools Women’s Team have appointed a new management team until the end of the current season after parting company with Craig Devon by mutual consent.

Devon took over during the summer and has led the Women to third place in the North East Regional Women’s Football League Premier Division but will now depart from the role.

Former Middlesbrough Women Reserve Team boss Jonathan Gibbon-Hayes has been placed in charge until the end of the 2018/19 campaign with former Pools Youth Team player Andy Hetherington coming in alongside him.

Gibbon-Hayes – who also previously worked as a coach in Pools’ Academy – will also be assisted by Under-15s coach Chris Murphy, as well as players Jenni Duffy-Smith and Caitlin Bates.

“We would like to thank Craig for all his efforts during the season and he leaves with our very best wishes for the future,” said Andy Stuart, Chairman of Pools Women’s Team.

“We also welcome Jonathan and Andy in to the Club and wish them very well for the rest of the season.”

Pools Women’s next fixture is on Sunday 24th February when they make the trip to Rotherham United.
