Sullivan looks for World Cup spin off

Jack Sullivan is hoping the Womens’ World Cup will have a spin off for the game in general and boost numbers for the West Ham team.

Discussing the last campaign the managing director said: “We were very happy with how last season went. We achieved a mid-table finish in the league and our FA Cup run – and trip to Wembley for the final – will live long in the memory of every person associated with our side.

“With it being our inaugural year as a professional outfit, a lot of the players were on one-year deals. We had a lot of honest conversations with the players towards the end of the season and each and every one of them who has departed goes with our sincerest thanks and best wishes.

“We began planning for the upcoming campaign months ago to be fully prepared, including having identified a whole host of new players to try and help us move forward.

Speaking to www.whufc.com“The confidence is there that the new recruits, who will be a mixture of youth and experience, will perfectly complement our current crop of players and we will have an even stronger squad to build on the platform we put in place last season.

“We believe West Ham United is now one of the most attractive clubs in the WSL for players to advance their careers and we are looking forward to introducing supporters to our new signings once the deals are over the line.”

He explained: “The World Cup has enhanced the profile of the women’s game and we hope this will see an increase in fans for games at Rush Green, boosting our already dedicated support which we are extremely grateful for.”

Season ticket details are available at the official site.

  1. The women’s club are NOT showing any signs of ambition. We have already lost six players from last season, including our leading (almost only) goalscorer and one of our two goalkeepers. Last season we were so stretched that on a couple of occasions we had only two sunstitutes and we are losing players hand over first without signing any!

    • They’ll be signing five to six new players and the budget increased for next season but its not that of Man Utd, City, Chelsea, Arsenal etc

      They also have Dutch int back that’s was out all season

      The club expect them to have a good season and season ticket sales are up 50%

      The player that left for Spurs is a big Spurs fan, it wasn’t about money. The one were they were gutted to lose was the girl who went to Man Utd
