First Female To Coach UK Pro Football Team

Finally breaking football barriers ⚽


In a groundbreaking move, Forest Green Rovers has etched a new chapter in football history by appointing Hannah Dingley as the caretaker manager of their first team. Dingley, the head of the club’s academy, has shattered glass ceilings by becoming the first woman to lead a professional men’s team in English football.

Joining the League Two club in 2019 to oversee the academy, Dingley’s visionary approach also led to the establishment of the club’s girls academy, which made its debut in 2021.


With her historic appointment, Dingley aims to inspire more women to pursue coaching, football, and various roles within the sport. As she takes on this momentous role, she leaves an indelible mark on the football landscape, paving the way for a more inclusive and diverse future.
