Jeff Maslin has taken the decision to step down as Sheffield Wednesday's Chairman.
He has released the following statement: "After long deliberations I have had to take the very hard decision in standing down from my role as Chairman of Sheffield Wednesday Womens FC at the end of this current season.
This decision has been one of the hardest I have ever made but due to my ever increasing daytime work commitments I feel that I cannot devote the time to the role that SWWFC demands. The club is now evolving into a business and commitment/hours to the role are more and more vital to the focus and drive of the club with the staff and committee of SWWFC spending more and more time doing tasks that are needed to keep the professional status of the club going and this is time I just cannot give up in my ever increasing work commitments.
In the time I have been at SWWFC I have seen a club that was within 24 hours of folding to a club that is now thriving on and off the pitch, with quality players and staff and a sound financial base to move forward. This is down to the hard work that has been done behind the scenes by a variety of people. There are lots of people to thank who have transformed this club to the one it is today but I would like to single out a few people who have gone above and beyond for the sole benefit of the club. Dan Duke, the person who's vision and application in single handily keeping the club afloat during the dark days. It was Dan who first approached me to take on the mantle of Chairman and him alone that sold the club to me. It was only supposed to be for six months, that was four and half years ago. Adam Smallman, someone who came to the club two years ago and has followed the work that Dan started and built on it to the extent we have internationals wanting to play for us. SWWFC is now a club that everybody within the women's game knows and this is in great part to the work of these two people.
I must also take this opportunity to thank my long suffering wife, known affectionately as Mrs Maz to everyone at SWWFC, who has not only supported me in my role, but has embraced SWWFC and is now a valued member of the committee.
Finally I would like to thank everyone who has been involved with SWWFC whilst I have been Chairman. This list includes players, staff, committee members, parents, Worksop Town, Retford United and especially all the kind sponsors that have kept the club going. Without this support SWWFC would not have survived. It has been the best years that I have had in football, and it is hard to walk away. One thing is for certain though, whoever takes over this club will have many years of happiness and enjoyment as it is definitely a great place to be."
The club is now seeking applications for the post and would ask interested parties to register their interest via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
