Bradford City AFC is pleased to announce the appointment of Emily Senior as the club's new women's first-team manager.
The 29-year-old former centre-back arrives at the club having most recently taken the reins at Ossett United Women in the North East Regional Women's Football League, overseeing promotion to the Premier Division.
Upon signing, Senior said: "I am delighted to be joining Bradford City. I have had opportunities to go into clubs at tier 3 and 4 level, but I knew I wanted to step back into management.
"When this job came up, and after having the conversations with Qasim (Akhtar, chair) and Gareth (Davis, head of football operations), I knew this was the place for me.
"The values of the club align with mine personally, so that is always a good starting point - seeing the infrastructure and all the building blocks in place. I am excited to get going and be a part of the journey."
Chair, Akhtar, said: "We are delighted to appoint Emily as the new manager of Bradford City AFC Women. Emily joins us with a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the game, and it is so refreshing to see how keen she is to continue learning.
"From the interviews and conversations me and Gaz held with Emily, it was clear she was the right fit for us, and we are pleased she felt the same way."
Senior will be assisted by Daniel Solts, and begins her tenure at high-flying Sunderland West End this Sunday, who the Bantams beat 6-2 last weekend.
