Spurs sack Skinner after nine consecutive WSL defeats

Tottenham Hotspur have announced the sacking of their Women’s Team Head Coach, Rehanne Skinner, after a 2-1 loss to Liverpool on Sunday. The 43-year-old joined the club in November 2020, and guided Spurs to a fifth-placed finish last season. However, results throughout this campaign have been less than satisfactory, and the North London outfit sit 10th in the twelve-team Women’s Super League.

Nine consecutive WSL losses means that Spurs’ last league win came on the 30th October 2022, when they put eight goals past fellow strugglers Brighton. Their only other wins this season have come against Liverpool and Leicester. Skinner (above left) will be replaced by Vicky Jepson (above right), who will take charge of the Lilywhites for the rest of the campaign. Her first challenge will be a home game against rock-bottom Leicester City on Wednesday.

With just eight games left to play, Jepson certainly has a mountain to climb if she is to guide Spurs up the table – though they’ll take comfort in the fact that only one team gets relegated from the WSL each season. Spurs’ fate could rely on the misfortune of the teams below them.
