Yeovil Ladies launch crowd funding page to rescue WSL status

Yeovil Town Ladies have launched a crowd funding page in a bid to raise enough money needed to maintain their status within the top-tier next season.

The women's top tier is to become a full-time professional league from next season.

Yeovil need to secure a sum of £350,000 or risk losing their place.

The deadline to apply for a new WSL licence is 10 November.

Following the restructure of the top division applied by the FA, they said: "We have the structure, facilities and ambition to become a full-time professional club given time, but we currently do not have the financial support to do this.

"We do not have the budget to allow our players and coaches to become full-time athletes, unless further investment comes our way soon."

Chairman Steve Allinson gave a passionate speech at full time from on the pitch after the Sunderland defeat, while MP for Yeovil Marcus Fysh tweeted plans to speak to the FA and ministers about the issue.
