An internal review, regarding the club’s performance, was conducted by the club’s backroom staff and the results of which have seen the coach lose his position after just a season in charge of the Lady Imps.

Harris has been at the club for 17 years now and is the father of midfielder Megan Harris and defender Martha, who both play for the club.

Lincoln Ladies chairman, Luke Negus-Hill said: “Glen has done a fantastic job for Lincoln Ladies from the very start, and we cannot thank him enough for the work that he has done behind the scenes at all levels and most recently as first team manager.

“Unfortunately, with the ambition that the clubs holds to continue our growth and expansion, we felt that a new approach to the first team may be beneficial and we will now be starting the search for the ideal candidate to take the club forwards.”

The search for the next manager of the Lady Imps has already begun, with potential candidates being interviewed over the next week.

Negus-Hill added on Harris’ future: “I am delighted to say that Glen will continue in his role as Technical Director of the club’s Centre of Excellence. His knowledge, experience and dedication will continue to be a massive asset to the club and we are better as an organisation for his continued involvement.”

The Lincoln Ladies finished the recent women’s Super League campaign strongly, with wins over Everton and Chelsea.
