Scott Booth is to leave Glasgow City to take up the position of manager at Birmingham City, the SWPL champions have announced.

The former international player departs City having delivered six league titles and two cups since joining the club in 2015.

Booth also led the team to a Champions League quarter-final during his time in charge.

“I would just like to say thank you to all of those who have been part of our incredible journey over the last six years at Glasgow City FC,” he said in a statement published on the club’s website.

“There are some absolutely incredible people working so hard for this great club.

“A huge thank you to the board and of course Laura Montgomery and Carol-Anne Stewart for giving me the opportunity to be part of something special.

“I will never forget the players that I have worked with at City and I want to thank them for all their hard work and dedication over the years. I wish the club every success going forward.”

The club’s chief executive Laura Montgomery said: “Scott leaves with our very best wishes. We have had amazing success together and we have worked really well as a partnership.

“His dedication to the job has been faultless and he got our club and our ethos the moment he joined Glasgow City. He is a great coach and a great person and I wish him the very best in his new post.”

City will now look to appoint a new head coach to continue Booth’s work and look to continue success in what is an increasingly competitive league.
