Lincoln Ladies have appointed Rick Passmoor as the new manager of the club after Keith Boanas decided to stay with the Estonian National team earlier this year.
Rick Passmoor will take charge of the team’s pre-season preparations, before the 2013 Women’s Super League starts in just under two months.
The ex-Leeds Ladies manager has already worked with Lady Imps striker Carla Cantrell and has a proven track record in the Women’s game, having won the Premier League Cup as well as picking up a Manager of the Year Award.
Rick Passmoor said: “I’ve always been aware of Lincoln Ladies from being involved in the female game.
“I was aware of the new challenges ahead in pastures new, I met with the Chairman and Luke Negus-Hill and they mapped out a plan and I think it’s very exciting and very challenging.
“With the way the female game has been projected nationally and internationally Lincoln Ladies has the chance to be a very respected and successful club”
Chief Executive Luke Negus-Hill believes Passmoor’s appointment will be a good one for the future of women’s football in Lincoln:
“We strongly feel that Rick is the man to take this club to where it belongs, he has a great history within the game, in many different roles, and his great experience will become highly valuable to this football club,” he said.
