London Bees appoint Osmond as caretaker manager

FA Women’s Championship club London Bees have this afternoon confirmed that Sian Osmond will take caretaker charge of the club for the remainder of the season.

The Bees have been without a manager since parting company with former boss Lee Burch by mutual consent earlier this week.

The club have today released a statement via their official website confirming that first team coach Osmond will move into a caretaker manager position until the end of the season.

Osmond takes over a London Bees side who are just one point above the relegation zone in the FA Women’s Championship. The Bees have also played more games than the two sides below them, Charlton Athletic and Coventry United. The club have enjoyed a much-improved run of form on home soil since the beginning of November while their last performance on the road at Durham was arguably their best of the season so far away from The Hive, despite falling to a 1-0 defeat.

Life after former boss Burch begins with London Bees’ trip to Crystal Palace on Sunday. They could move to within two points of The Eagles should they record a victory at Hayes Lane.

Caretaker boss Osmond has been with London Bees for five years. She has previously led the London Bees development teams and the Barnet FC Elite Development Programme. Osmond has been in her first team coach role since 2018.
