Leeds United Ladies Football Club have amicably parted company with their manager of four years, Julie Chipchase.
Julie has found her work and personal commitments taking up more of her time and she is wanting to take time away from the demands of the Premier League to concentrate on other things.
Julie has taken Leeds to two national Cup finals in the past two years and finished a credible fifth place in the F.A.Women's Premier League in the season just finished. Leeds were top of the league and unbeaten at Christmas and looked strong contenders to finish in second position, however a string of defeats following the narrow 1-0 League Cup Final defeat to Arsenal saw the club finish in fifth.
Chairperson Melanie Vauvelle commented: "It is with great sadness that we accept the resignation of Julie, but fully understand the reasons. Julie had found it increasingly difficult to make all the training sessions and matches due to work and personal commitments.
"We would like to put on record our thanks and appreciation to Julie for taking the club forward, establishing it as one of the top sides in the country and achieving a remarkable record of being in two national Cup Finals in two years, an achievement most clubs never succeed in their entire history. Julie has show great loyalty and commitment over the four years through the good and difficult times.
"We would like to now bring someone in who can build on the good work already in place with Julie and take the club to another level. The club is very ambitious and as well as having an array of quality players already at the club, we also have some of the most talented young players in the country still to come through.
"We would like to wish Julie all the best for the future.
"Leeds United Ladies have some very exciting things happening which will help secure the club's long term future and we hope to make some big announcements in the near future."
Julie Chipchase added: "It is very hard to be leaving Leeds, the four years that I have been at the club have been very rewarding for me personally. I have made many friends within the club and have experienced many highs in my four years, obviously getting through to the two cup finals and seeing some really talented players come through from the youth teams are ones that stick out. All the players have worked so hard for me - they are a fantastic bunch of players with so much ability and commitment.
"I will be having a season out of managing to concentrate on work and personal commitments. I hope to use the following season to reflect on the past ten years of managing and coaching within the Premier League and to take time to develop myself further to become a better manager and coach. When I check the scores on a Sunday evening Leeds will be the first I look for, I genuinely wish the club good luck for next season and hope all the hard work is rewarded."
