Aston Villa Women Head Coach Gemma Davies has been awarded her first-ever managerial accolade after being named the FA Women’s Championship Manager of the Month for August.
She has masterminded the unbeaten start to the season that the women’s side has enjoyed as they came from behind in games against Sheffield United Women and London City Lionesses to win both August games 3-2, before leading her side to a 2-1 win at Villa Park yesterday.
Davies, who is now in her second season in charge of the Aston Villa Women, is a childhood Aston Villa fan and has been involved in management around the local area for a number of years, despite her young age of 27.
She is also the Head of Women’s Football at the University of Birmingham.
The players at the club speak highly of Gemma, and a number of the new signings, despite being older than her, attest to the fact that she is a top coach.
Humble as ever, Gemma, speaking to club media said:
“This award is recognition of the hard work that all staff and players across our team put in every week to ensure we have the best possible platform to succeed. This is truly for them.”Gemma Davies on being awarded the August MOTM award.
We’re sure she’s brimming with pride having guided her side to 9 points from a possible 9, especially as that culminated with a win at B6 and her receiving her plaudits in the form of an award.
