Lauren Smith leaves Cymru role

The FAW can confirm that Cymru Women’s Team coach Lauren Smith will step down from her role to become assistant coach at Tottenham Hotspur.

Since joining the FAW on a full-time basis in 2017, Smith has been the assistant manager for the National Women’s Team and has been heavily involved in the WU17 and WU19 environments. During the last four years, the senior team reached the top 30 of the FIFA women’s rankings for the first time, whilst the WU17 and WU19 sides have qualified for several UEFA European Championship Elite Rounds.

The FAW would like to thank Lauren for her commitment to Welsh football over the past four years and wish her well in her future endeavours.
