Because that's what they've named themselves and want to be known as

Which is good, although I would like to suggest something like "SWFC Get This Talon In Your Eye" as a possible alternative. I think "talon" sounds classier than "beak" and "eye"more painful than "*rs*" but I might be getting carried away by hearing constant repetitions of the word "lionesses" unti l have actually developed a facial tic in snticipation of hearing the word every time a female news presenter gets on the air. I never knew we had so many middle-class reality-disconnected bandwagon jumpers. It's like a film loop of  "The Belles of St Trinians".😁

They play on Sundays. 

 

It's not a choice of men Vs women.

Good, that means more people can turn up to watch them. I expect everyone that is calling for an investment into the women's team to go to the games

Do you really expect that? I think you need to lower your expectations.

Yes when the fixtures come out I will go down a few times hopefully there's a way of putting a tenner into club

Fixtures are already out. First home game is 18/09/22 v Handsworth. Kick off 2pm.

 

It is free to watch. Hopefully someone will have a bucket to collect some cash.

They don’t play at the same time 

Well hopefully all the people wanting investment into the ladies team will start going to the games when the season starts. As it is free!

It might help if the reporter, @YesWeCrann, writing about SWLFC knew what Tier of football they were in. They are in the 6th Tier not 7th.

 

My original comment was about The Star writing about girls football in general, not just SWLFC. It is very poor compared to other local newspapers. 

 

Apologies, yeah, it is the sixth tier... Just a typo on my part.

So what women's football would you like to see written about? Genuine question.

Depends on what angle you are coming from, I see the Star as a Sheffield/Rotherham paper.

 

The highest ranked local ladies teams are: Pigs,  Sheffield FC and Rotherham United Whitehill. There is a story with RUW as I believe that ladies are being enticed away to Hull for pay per game, one of which I think is getting  as good as or better as men get at a similar level.

 

At SWLFC level there are two other local sides, very happy for you to promote the Wednesday Ladies and hopefully people will know their names in the future. If people are genuine on here the future could be good. Other teams are Handsworth, excellent and well respected club, especially at the mens game, Ladies are in the same division as SWLFC. They also have excellent facilities, I believe that some of the Ladies Euro teams used them as they are that good. Other one is Millmoor (Juniors) Ladies. I do like it when a junior team makes it as an adult team and has to keep the name they grew up as. Moving up the leagues. It is the only one of these ladies teams that has girls teams in the U18s, U16s and U15s in the top division so could be interesting to watch for the future.
