Glasgow City Head Coach departs the club

Glasgow City would like to announce that long serving Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black has left the club by mutual consent.

Wolecki Black joined Glasgow City firstly towards the end of 2007 on a temporary basis and was made Head Coach in 2008 going on to become the first full-time Head Coach of a Scottish Women's football club.

His time at the club has been one of great success, most notably with City winning the last 8 consecutive League titles as well as breaking new ground in Europe, most importantly this year when the Scottish Champions reached the UEFA Women's Champions League Quarter Finals.

Commenting on the departure, City Club Manager, Laura Montgomery said, "We would like to say a huge thank you to Eddie for all that he has helped our club achieve. It has been a quite a formidable partnership and one that has worked extremely well for all of us. Eddie achieved every target we put to him and that is nothing short of remarkable.

"Eight years is a long time and both Eddie and the Club Management felt a change was right for everyone. As a Coach it is only right he seeks new challenges and for ourselves, we also felt now was a good time for someone else to come in and take over. 

"We have forged a terrific friendship over the years and we wish Eddie every success in the future."

On leaving, Eddie said, "In football they say a manager has a shelf life of 4 years at one club.  I have been fortunate to have had double that time at Glasgow City. During that time we have managed to achieve some wonderful memories and the highs far outweigh the lows. I would like to thank everyone who has played a part in our success throughout my time. Without their support, loyalty and hard work I doubt I would have lasted as long.

"I have nothing but praise for the club and of course will still take a huge interest in their future.

"After eight years my enthusiasm was not what it once was and the club deserve better than that. A new opportunity awaits me and it is a fresh start for Glasgow City.

"The past will now remain a standard bearer for the club and I sincerely hope the new manager can take the club to the next level and keep the name of Glasgow City prominent across the whole of Europe."
