Women’s team to go full-time

Charlton Athletic have confirmed the appointment of Karen Hills as Head Coach of the club’s Women’s team. Hills, who had a successful playing career at Charlton between 2001 and 2007, will lead the club in preparing to go full time from July.

Owner Thomas Sandgaard said: “I am delighted we have been able to appoint someone of Karen’s experience and pedigree. She has a great history with our club from her playing days and managed the transition to full-time at Tottenham Hotspur excellently. Our ambition is for Charlton to be challenging in that top tier of the FA Women’s Super League and I am looking forward to watching the team grow.”
