Head coach Potter to leave Coventry United

Coventry United have confirmed that head coach Jo Potter is leaving the club this summer.

The 37-year-old joined The Red and Greens in summer 2018 whilst still playing for former club Reading and she has gained some valuable coaching experience with the club working under manager Jay Bradford.

In her time at the Butts Park Arena, Potter has helped Coventry United avoid relegation back to the FA Women’s National League on three occasions. Her greatest achievement with the Warwickshire club came this season as Coventry United escaped relegation on the final day of the campaign with a dramatic 97th-minute winning goal at Watford. The club had been thrown into a relegation dogfight after being deducted 10 points in January following their former owners’ decision to apply for voluntary liquidation. Potter was one of 39 members of staff initially made redundant before the club was saved by current owner Lewis Taylor early in the New Year.

Potter has a wealth of experience to share with her next club. As a player, she was capped by England on 35 occasions, picking up a Bronze Medal at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 while at club level, Potter has turned out for a whole host of clubs including Birmingham City, Arsenal and Everton to name a few.

The young coach undoubtedly has a massive off-field career ahead of her and both Coventry United fans and the widespread footballing community will be intrigued to learn of the next step of her journey.
