Manchester City Women manager Nick Cushing was appointed to his role in November 2013.
Having worked at the club in various coaching capacities over a nine-year period, Chester-born Cushing was delighted to accept the challenge and proved his worth by leading the Club to a fifth-placed finish in the FA Women's Super League and a first ever trophy.
He started his career as a schools coach, working with junior teams. He then went on to become part of the coaching staff at Manchester City’s Academy.
During that time, he worked within the 12-16 Development Phase of coaching, collecting an A-Licence qualification along the way. He has also studied Management and Leadership, plus Business and Accounting.
Having recently earned praise from several members of his side for his man-management, Cushing is admired for his ability to get the best out of his players, as he hopes to ensure the Blues become a competitive force in their second season in the FA Women’s Super League.
Cushing is also well-known for keeping his feet firmly on the ground. After a tough start to life in the top flight, he refused to panic, insisting the results would come good in due course – and they did.
