Here's a piece of news from last week that we were chuffed to announce, with Wednesday legend Mark Smith coming on board as a club ambassador.

 

We're delighted to have him!

Quotes and interview with the man himself is below (and excuse the Leeds badge, some brand new SWFC gear is now with him, don't worry!):

Granddaughters last day of her open trial on Wednesday night I hope she she gets in if she does I will have to sign up for social media

 

Speaking of which, if any forum members want to come down to open training, or have kids/family members that might be interested, if you fill out the form below, a member of our coaching team will be in touch to talk about the next steps and getting you/them involved.

We also have to say....As per league rules, players wishing to attend our open sessions must NOT be registered with any other SHWGL team.

 

Thanks!

Is the Ladies team affiliated with the club or does it just use it's name, club and badge?

Both. We are affiliated to the club as the official female representatives of SWFC at both junior and senior levels, and as such we use the club name, badge, kit etc.

So are you funded by the club then? Aka DC? Could he provide some funds to get the ladies team to a higher division?

We're volunteer-run and self-sufficient so we sort our own funding, SWFC is generous with their time and expertise when needed and help us out off the pitch which we're always grateful for.

 

The social media exposure SWFC provide is great and being able to tap into the brand is massive. Things like providing a spot in each match day programme also helps keep SWLFC in the public eye for fans. Plus the links to the main club, an example being with someone like Mark Smith coming on board as mentioned yesterday, those links are brilliant for us.

This season SWLFC's first team will have a new head coach in Stewart Alexander.

 

We caught up with him to talk all things SWLFC, including recruitment, his coaching staff & aims for 2022/23.

Thanks for the continued support guys, it is much appreciated.

 

Did he used to manage Yorkshire Amateur?

For anyone wanting to find out more about SWLFC, our Chair Dave Higgins went on the Wednesday 'Til I Die podcast last week to chat through a load of stuff, including how we're run, financed, what our link is to SWFC, what teams we have, player recruitment, plenty on women's football generally plus a whole lot more.

 

The episode went live this morning, so with anyone who has an hour to spare and wants to find out more about us or women's football, the link is here: https://podfollow.com/1546099630/episode/b32c1def0239297732bfe976931b95f602fdacf9/view

Some great news to end the week on, one of our youth players Evie has been chosen to carry out the match ball for the Women's Euro game between Switzerland and reigning champions Netherlands on Sunday 17 July!

 

It's a real feel good piece for the club, and I'm sure she'll love the occasion!
