ITFC Women’s assistant manager Paige Shorten is to leave the club later this month to take up a role with the FA, it has been announced.
Shorten, who recently passed her UEFA A course, is to take up the position of FA Women's Talent Technical Coach for the Midlands & East Region.
Manager Joe Sheehan paid tribute to Shorten's work at Playford Road since she joined the club in October 2018.
“Paige’s impact on the growth of female football at Ipswich Town over the past two years has been phenomenal," he said.
“The progress we have made both on and off the pitch has been largely down to Paige’s hard work, drive and enthusiasm.
“I cannot thank her enough for what she’s done and I wish her nothing but the best in her new role with the FA. Her replacement will have huge boots to fill.”
As well as being first-team and U21s assistant manager to Sheehan, Shorten has been the co-ordinator of Ipswich Town Girls’ ACC Centre.
