Aston Villa

Aston Villa Ladies have named former Chelsea academy coach Graham Abercrombie as their new manager.

Abercrombie replaces Stuart Wilson, who stood down at the end of last season for family reasons.

Wilson led Villa to promotion to the FA Women's Premier League National Division and the Birmingham Cup.

Abercrombie was the Worcestershire FA's girls player development centre director and had a spell as Worcester City Ladies manager/head coach.

He was international development coach at Chelsea, working at youth, under-16s and under-14s levels.
