Glasgow City Football Club can announce that Head Coach Scott Booth shall be leaving the club to take over the vacant Head Coach role at Women’s Super League side, Birmingham City Women.
Booth joined Glasgow City in his position as Head Coach in July 2015 and helped the club complete a fourth domestic treble in a row with victory in the Scottish Cup and a ninth consecutive Scottish Women’s Premier League.
Glasgow City would go on to win the 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020/21 SWPL titles to extend the record to 14 league triumphs in a row, despite the growing strength of the league. 2019 was also notable under Booth’s management as he won the Scottish Cup to reclaim the trophy for the first time in four years and secure a cup double.
In total, Booth won six league titles and two Scottish Cups as Head Coach.
Furthermore, Scott Booth also led Glasgow City to our second ever UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final during the 2019/20 campaign after defeating Brondby on penalties building on a run from the previous season in which the side reached the round of 16.
On departing the club Booth said:
“I would just like to say thank you to all of those who have been part of our incredible journey over the last 6 years at Glasgow City FC. Some absolutely incredible people working so hard for this great club. A huge thank you to the board and of course Laura Montgomery and Carol-Anne Stewart for giving me the opportunity to be part of something special. I will never forget the players that I have worked with at City and I want to thank them for all their hard work and dedication over the years. I wish the club every success going forward.”
Chief Executive Laura Montgomery said:
“Scott leaves with our very best wishes. We have had amazing success together and we have worked really well as a partnership. His dedication to the job has been faultless and he got our club and our ethos the moment he joined Glasgow City. He is a great coach and a great person and I wish him the very best in his new post.”
Booth leaves the club with a win percentage of 84% from his 172 games in charge over his six year spell. We wish him the best of luck at his new role at Birmingham City. #OCAC
