Tottenham sack Skinner | Jepson to take charge vs Leicester

Tottenham Women have sacked Rehanne Skinner after a run of nine successive defeats in the WSL, with assistant coach Vicky Jepson to take interim charge.

Spurs have not won any of their WSL games since beating Brighton 8-0 in October - which proved to be Hope Powell's last match in charge of the Seagulls - and also bowed out of both cup competitions in that time.

Tottenham lost to Liverpool in the league on Sunday, leaving then 10th in the WSL table - two points ahead of Leicester, who they face on Wednesday. It is set to be a crunch relegation match for both sides.

Spurs have won just three of their 14 WSL matches under Skinner this season, despite signing Drew Spence, Bethany England and Mana Iwabuchi in the last two transfer windows.

England's arrival from Chelsea in January marked a British-record fee for a women's player at £250,000.

Managing director Andy Rogers said: "Since joining us in 2020, Rehanne has played an integral role in our development in the women's game, both on and off the field.
