Millwall Lionesses have appointed Colin Reid as their manager.
He spent last season as technical director of the Millwall RTC scheme and will combine that role with his new post.
Lionesses will play in the Eastern Region Women’s Football League Division One.
“This is a very exciting project and one I am proud to be associated with,” said Reid.
“Women’s football continues to grow and be on the up. To manage and lead one of the most established teams in the women’s game is an opportunity that I will relish.”
Lionesses are now under the management of Millwall Community Trust.
MCT CEO Sean Daly said: “To have the Lionesses come back under the club officially is something we have worked hard towards and I am delighted that it’s now happened.
“To have such an integral and historic women’s club involved with the community trust will not only see us thrive and continue to grow, but also have a place for young female football to continue their development.”
All the Lionesses’ home games will be played at St Paul’s Sports Ground in Rotherhithe – with free entry to all this season.
Millwall chief executive Steve Kavanagh said: “This coming season marks the start of an exciting new era for the Lionesses under the umbrella of Millwall Community Trust. There is a wealth of knowledge and experience amongst those involved in the new structure and that bodes well for the short and long-term future.
“Allowing free entry for all home matches in 2019-20 is a great move designed to attract as many supporters as possible to games and build rapport between fans, players and staff alike.”
