GLASGOW City have retained head coach Eddie Wolecki Black for the foreseeable future.

In the wake of what has been a fantastic season for City, Black had meetings with the club to agree a way ahead.

The club had not lost a domestic game all season and won the treble.

Club manager Laura Montgomery said: “At the end of the season, the most important thing for us was to meet up with Eddie and reach a new agreement.

“We have worked well over the years and it is a great partnership we have at the club off the field as well as matching our aims on it.

“At a time when we are looking to build on our recent success and achieve even more as a club, we feel there was no one better placed to continue to drive us forward.

“Eddie’s qualities speak for themselves, but we are thrilled that he has been accepted on the UEFA Pro License course, the highest coaching standard possible, and a first, we believe, for any Scottish women’s side.

“This will only help in enhancing the club and indeed the women’s game in Scotland even further.”

Eddie has himself expressed his great delight at the new agreement.

He said: “The meeting about my future was always on the agenda and I prefer to wait until the end of the season and see if the players are still responding to me and my work.

“In truth, the meeting was done and dusted within two hours. As a coach I need to work with ambitious people and there is no doubt the owners of this club meet that in every way.

“If I think to where we were when I first became involved and where we are now, wow, it’s staggering.

“The first team have continued to set high standards and the season just ended will live with me forever.

“To win every, single domestic game was something I admit I thought was possible — but required a little luck However, when the draws for the cups kept putting top six teams in our path, I believed it was maybe not meant to be.

“Despite that, we managed to accomplish the unthinkable.”
