England Women have been boosted by the appointment of Dawn Scott as senior women’s physical performance manager.
Scott, who hails from the north-east, has been working with US Soccer since 2010 and played a key part in USA’s FIFA World Cup wins in 2015 and 2019.
She previously spent nine years with The FA as head of sports science and supported England’s run to the 2009 UEFA EURO final.
Her role will be to support the Lionesses as they work towards UEFA Women’s EURO 2021, which will be played on home soil.
That preparation will start with the SheBelieves Cup to be played in the US from February, with Scott starting work at St. George’s Park in December.
Scott will also be charged with building the interaction between the senior team and Barclays FA WSL clubs in terms of physical performance as well as working closely with staff along the whole talent pathway.
She will benefit from working alongside the outstanding physical performance and nutrition team already working at St. George’s Park.
