It was the turn this week of the women's game to present their evidence to Tracey Crouch's fan-led review.
The Chair of Portsmouth FC Women perhaps put it most succinctly:
- Don’t allow the women’s game to make the same mistakes as the men’s game.
- Don’t allow huge financial gaps between leagues
- Do move money all the way down the pyramid.
- Do put measures in place to look after the players physically and mentally at all levels of the game.
- Do put in measures to improve facilities for all, staff, players and supporters at all levels of the game.
- Do try to get crowds back to where they were 100 years ago before women’s football was banned in this country.
- Do put in measures to run the game and the clubs sustainably.”
- Eric Coleborn, chair, Portsmouth FC Women
