Shelley Kerr steps down as Scotland women's football team head coach after failing to qualify for Eu

London: Shelley Kerr, who guided the Scotland women's team to their first-ever World Cup finals in 2019, is stepping down from the job, the Scottish Football Association said on Thursday.

The 51-year-old leaves the role after three years having failed to secure qualification for the Euros in 2022 - a home defeat by Finland earlier in December ending their hopes.

Kerr - who also coached Scotland at the Euro 2017 finals where they went out in the group stage - said it was time to confront new challenges.
