Lisa Fallon said she's ready to embrace a "fantastic" opportunity after being confirmed as Chelsea Women's new game analysis and strategy coach.

Fallon, a UEFA Pro-License holder, spent almost six years at Cork City and in 2017 they won the Airtricity League and FAI Cup double.

She'll work alongside manager Emma Hayes at the London club, who finished third in the Women's Super league last season.

"The opportunity to come to Chelsea is fantastic and I'm really excited about the project and Emma Hayes’s plans," Fallon told the club's website.

"I’m excited to have the opportunity to bring some of the experience and knowledge I have developed over the years to the women’s game."

Hayes was full of praise for the recruit, adding: "Lisa's been doing great things in Ireland. She’ll bring a wealth of experience to the position and I think she’s another fantastic hire by us.

"She’s a super person and her drive and determination to succeed for us is massive."
