Cambridge City Women are delighted to announce that they have appointed Fadi Mazloum as their new first team manager.
The former Stevenage Women boss, 35, is taking over with immediate effect and looking forward to the challenge of moving the team and the club forward. As a UEFA B Coaching licence holder, Mazloum also works with the Football Association as a UEFA C coach developer.
"I believe Cambridge City is a sleeping giant. With the new stadium and tradition of bringing players all the way through the youth system to the first team, there is huge potential at this club. Our aims for my first season are twofold – to show that we are not a team that should be battling relegation and to win back the County Cup. But I intend to be here for the long term and to be part of this exciting project both on and off the field”
Fadi started out in the women’s game in 2018 as assistant manager at St Albans Ladies FC, before moving on to Bedford Ladies and then spending 18 months at Stevenage. Joining him in the coaching set-up will be former Bedford manager, Simon Henry.
Mazloum went on to say, “ I am really looking forward to getting started. I like my teams to produce attacking football which is enjoyable to watch and play. If the players give me the commitment and hard work I ask for, I will give them the passion and direction they need to be the best they can be, so that we can take this club to a new level together”
Last season Cambridge City Women retained their place in the FA Women’s National League Division One South East, the fourth tier of the women’s game.
