Birmingham City Women have parted company with manager Marta Tejedor by mutual agreement, with first team coach Charlie Baxter to become interim head coach with immediate effect. 

Former Chile and Peru national team coach Tejedor, 51, took over the role in January 2019 after Marc Skinner - who had managed the club’s first team since 2016, reaching the FA Cup final the following year -  left to become head coach of NWSL side Orlando Pride.

At that time Birmingham were fourth in the Women’s Super League, with Tejedor helping them reach a record points total later that term.

Now Birmingham are second from bottom in the Women’s Super League, with just two league wins and seven points from thirteen matches to their name. 

In a statement, Birmingham City Women said: “The club believes the move is in the best interests of both parties as we seek fresh impetus for the remainder of the season [...] our recent league results were a major factor for this change.

“However, with nine WSL games still remaining and an FA Cup Quarter-Final to come there is still plenty left to play for.
