LIAM Gilbert and Matt Parry have been named as interim managers of Oxford United’s women’s side.

Both worked with the club’s development side last season, but will take charge ahead of a first season in the third tier of a newly-structured women’s pyramid.

Gilbert will be the interim first-team manager, assisted by Parry.

“It’s a very proud day to be asked to step up and we both want to thank the club for having such faith in us,” Gilbert said.
