Nick Cushing has signed a new deal with Manchester City Women after withdrawing from the running to replace Mark Samson as the new England Women boss.
Cushing, who was appointed City manager in 2014, put pen to paper on a three-and-a-half year contract extension; his commitment follows a string of success at the club.

During his three years at the club Cushing has led City Women to their first ever WSL1 title, the Women’s FA Cup and the Continental Cup.
Cushing has overseen a superb run of form at City, who currently lead the way in the WSL. And they have a Champions League quarter final to look forward to as well.
The coach, who landed the job after being promoted from City’s Academy, said: “We can carry on trying to be successful and continue the great work that we’ve shown over the past four years to try and remain the dominant domestic team and keep pushing on in Europe.”
“I’m really, really happy to have signed. My future is here and we can carry on trying to be successful and continue the great work that we’ve shown over the past four years to try and remain the dominant domestic team and keep pushing on in Europe.”
Sampson was sacked as England women’s manager following evidence of “inappropriate and unacceptable” behaviour with female players in a previous role.
The Welshman became Lionesses’ head coach in December 2013 after leaving top-flight side Bristol Academy, who are now renamed Bristol City Women.
