Womens’ skipper makes feelings known


By Simon Leyland

A couple of weeks ago West Ham announced vice-chair Karren Brady, along with fellow board member Nichola Keye and Tara Warren, had been appointed as directors of the women’s team.

Baroness Brady said at the time that the trio would “work tirelessly to ensure that West Ham United Women continue to go from strength to strength, on and off the field”.

But all is not well….

West Ham defender Lucy Parker has criticised the Irons for failing to allow any games for their women’s team to be played at the London Stadium.

Parker wrote on Twitter after hearing the announcement that the Iron`s under-18s men`s team will play their FA Youth Cup semi-final at the stadium next week.

Parker responded by saying: “Taking nothing away from the lads because they more than deserve it after their year but when will we get a game at the stadium?

“We are the only WSL side not to have a game at the men’s stadium and haven’t played there since 2019. Made an FA Cup semi-final last year too so can’t be that.”

The women’s team currently play their home matches at National League side Dagenham`s ground.
