Following today’s decision to terminate the FA Women’s Championship season with immediate effect, Lee Sanders has written to supporters:
“It’s obviously disappointing that the season has now come to a close, but under the current circumstances it’s understandable.
“It’s the right thing to do and has been carried out in a professional manner with input from all clubs and The FA.
“We now look towards preparing for next season and the players are looking forward to getting back to training when it is safe to do so.
“Throughout the season the players and staff have worked incredibly hard and once again I believe we have seen improvements from previous seasons, despite the challenges with injuries we’ve unfortunately suffered.
“Since lockdown the players have been nothing short of incredible in their approach to training and should be applauded for their desire to be in the best shape possible for any return that may have presented itself.
“To all of our sponsors and partners that have supported the club, we look forward to working with you all again next season.
“And finally, a huge thank you to all of our fans for turning out to get behind the players home and away in all weathers. We really are looking forward to seeing you all again as soon as we can.”
