Birmingham City has announced the appointment of Amy Merricks as their new head coach, signing a three-year deal. The news was confirmed through an official club press release this evening, as revealed by WSL Full-Time.

Merricks joins Birmingham City after an impressive stint leading the England Under-19s side. Her appointment comes following the departure of former Blues boss Darren Carter, who left his position last week after more than two years in charge.

Prior to her role with the England youth setup, Merricks gained valuable coaching experience at former club Brighton & Hove Albion. During her time with the Sussex club, she served as both a development team head coach and first team assistant manager. Notably, Merricks spent over five years working closely with manager Hope Powell, who now holds the position of women’s technical director at Birmingham City.

With Birmingham City’s promotion aspirations for the current season now behind them, Merricks is entrusted with the task of shaping a squad capable of competing for the Barclays Women’s Championship title during her tenure at St Andrew’s.

Commenting on her appointment, Merricks expressed her excitement, stating, “It’s an honour to join Birmingham City at such a critical juncture in their journey. I’m eager to begin working with such a talented group of players.” She emphasized her attraction to the club’s ambitions and rich history in women’s football, expressing her determination to lead Birmingham City to new heights.

Merricks is set to commence her duties with Birmingham City on Tuesday morning, ready to embark on the next chapter of the club’s journey under her leadership.
