Hope Powell resigns as women's England coach
Hope Powell's 15-year reign as head coach of the England women's team had come to an end as the Football Association has decided the time is right "for a fresh outlook".
Following a successful playing career Powell took on the head coach role in 1998, guiding England to the European Championship final four years ago where they lost to Germany.
The recent disappointment of the latest European finals, however, where England bowed out in the first round, has undoubtedly played a part in Powell's departure.
