Rick Passmoor departs Leeds United Women

Manager joins Women’s Super League side.


Leeds United can confirm that Women’s manager Rick Passmoor has left the club, in order to take up a coaching role with a Women’s Super League side.

Whilst the club is naturally disappointed to see someone of Passmoor’s coaching ability depart, we are proud of his progression to the top division of the game.

Passmoor joined the Whites in the summer of 2022 and instantly implemented a strong coaching philosophy, helping the team to lift its first silverware in over a decade, bringing home the 2022/23 FA Women’s National League Plate.

Rick now leaves the club having overseen all of the pre-season preparations for the 2023/24 campaign and was in the dugout for the opening match of the season last Sunday, which saw Leeds beat Stockport County at the Bannister Prentice Stadium.

Everyone connected to Leeds United would like to wish Rick every success for the future, whilst thanking him for his efforts, professionalism and hard work whilst at the club.

Taking charge of the team for the FAWNL Cup fixture away at Leek Town this weekend will be Simon Wood from our Women’s Academy, assisted by general manager Julie Lewis.

An announcement on a permanent appointment will follow in due course.
