Women's Football News
There was sad news for women's game in England with the news this week that Southampton Saints, one of the country's stalwart clubs, has been forced to fold.
The announcement came that the club has disbanded due to decreasing player numbers and lack of financial support.
Southampton Saints' proudest moment came in the 1998-99 season when they reached the FA Women's Cup Final, going down to a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at The Valley. They also reached the semi finals on two other occasions, and played at the top flight for several years.
The club then went into decline and lost their Premier League status, eventually being relegated into the Southern Region League. However, under the guidance of Adam Lee, they were promoted back into the league and just two seasons ago, finished in a highly credible fourth place in Division One South West.
The news of the demise of Southampton Saints means that since the reorganisation of the then Premier League in 2014, Division One South West has still not completed a season with its full complement of clubs.
