Tottenham Hotspur Women are in the news again today, and this time for a good reason: the club has extended the contracts of head coaches Karen Hills and Juan Amoros ahead of their first ever Women’s Super League campaign.
Funnily enough, the news was posted on Tottenham Hotspur’s website, but posted in a way that made it look like it hasn’t actually been made public. At the time of this posting, Spurs Women hadn’t tweeted the news from their official account.
Whether this was a quirk of the website or a leak from Time Bandits, it’s still good news for Spurs Women. Hills has been in charge at Tottenham since 2007 and has led the club to three promotions in her tenure. Amoros joined the coaching squad in 2011.
And in fact the release’s language of “Head Coaches” is interesting, since if I remember correctly last season Hills was listed as Manager, and Amoros as First Team Coach. This would imply that Spurs are now being co-managed this season with both Hills and Amoros sharing the title of Head Coach. If true, that would accurately reflect the way the club’s been run the past couple of years, with both of them sharing responsibilities and successes.
Anyway, when this news actually IS posted some time in the future, everyone will find it really exciting.
The other bit of Tottenham Hotspur Women news was an announcement that the Women will play another early season match at a Premier League stadium. The September 29 match away to West Ham will now take place at the London Stadium.
Earlier it was announced that their season opener against Chelsea will take place at Stamford Bridge, and Spurs’ home North London Derby against Arsenal on November 17 is confirmed to take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The majority of Spurs’ home fixtures will take place at The Hive, home of London Bees in Edware.
