Former Birmingham City interim manager Charles Baxter has been appointed assistant head coach at FA Women’s National League Division One South East club Ipswich Town according to reports on The Tractor Girls’ official club website.
The 31-year-old held various roles at former club Birmingham City including first team technical coach, first team assistant coach and first team interim manager prior to leaving the SportNation.bet Stadium last September soon after the appointment of current Blues head coach Carla Ward.
It has today been confirmed that Baxter has secured a return to the game by becoming the new assistant coach to Joe Sheehan at Ipswich Town. Baxter will initially work with the Suffolk-based club for 15 months and will hope to help guide The Tractor Girls further up the footballing pyramid.
Ipswich Town have been without an assistant coach for more than four months. In addition to working in the first team in his assistant role, it is understood that Baxter will work with the club’s WSL academy side and their ACC youth team.
Baxter was appointed interim manager of Birmingham City 12 months ago following the departure of former Blues head coach Marta Tejedor by mutual consent. He was faced with guiding the club to Barclays FA Women’s Super League safety but never took charge of the Blues for a competitive fixture with the 2019/2020 season curtailed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
