FA Women’s Championship club London Bees have parted company with manager Lee Burch by mutual consent according to reports on the club’s official website.
The Bees currently find themselves just one point and two places above the relegation zone in the FA Women’s Championship with six games left to play.
It has today been announced that manager Burch has left the club by mutual consent. His departure is not thought to be performance-based with London Bees having shown a huge improvement in their development during the last three months. The club have advised that the decision is down to ‘continued difficulties caused by the pandemic and the restrictions in place’.
Burch leaves The Hive after helping the club create history last season. He guided The Bees to a best-ever finish in the FA Women’s Championship of fifth place. The club were unbeaten in five home matches in all competitions prior to Sunday’s 4-2 defeat to Sheffield United while London Bees’ last away fixture at Durham was arguably their best on the road of the season so far.
Burch is a manager who always has a great relationship with his players and he will undoubtedly be missed by everyone associated with London Bees. The club have not issued any details on their plans to recruit Burch’s replacement.
