Wednesday call it a day
 Women's Football News 3 May 2012
Sheffield Wednesday Women have announced that they are to fold with immediate effect. 
A statement has been issued by club Chairman, Jeff Maslin: 
It is with regret that I have to make the following statement in regards to the future of Sheffield Wednesday Womens Football Club.

After conversations with representatives of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club and the secretary of the Northern Combination Football League a decision has been reached whereas of with immediate effect Sheffield Wednesday Womens Football Club will as of today, 2/5/2012, no longer be operating a football club.

This decision has been reached for numerous reasons, the main ones being that SWFC are withdrawing their support from our club, as well as the Sheffield Wednesday brand with immediate effect and will be concentrating on working with Sheffield Wednesday Ladies FC, who unlike SWWFC have a junior section as well as a senior team. Although this team plays at a lower level than SWWFC the main club are keen on building for the future.

I have tried long and hard to work with certain people at the main club and although supported by some factions within the club the directive has come from the very top and people's hands are tied. It is disappointing to me that as the outgoing Chairman that this is to be my last duty, but it was not for the want of trying to keep the club going. The league has been informed that we will be not entering a team next season and that due to circumstances our final fixture will not be able to be fulfilled. The reason behind next season is purely financial due to the commitment that has to be made on funding a club at this level. Bills in excess of £10,000 this season has put a major strain on everyone that is involved in this club and with little help from outside sponsors due to the economic climate has made this even harder to operate.
Unfortunately until Womens Football is recognised from the top downwards other clubs will be following SWWFC as the infrastructure and investment into Womens football at this level is to say the least is embarrassing, and I have total empathy with major football clubs that do not have a lot to do with ladies clubs using their badges, colours and names.
I understand that there will be some unhappy players, staff and people that have or are associated with the club and I am willing for any of these people to call me directly so as to explain the situation we were put in.
