Wolves Women End Of Season Report

PUBLISHED

17:45 9th June 2014

All the details from an exciting campaign

The 2013-2014 season provided a real campaign of highs and lows for our six female sides.

Wolves Women senior side maintained their place in the FA Womens Premier League, following a shaky start to the season.

A change in management and loss of critical players to the newly formed WSL2 teams meant that Trevor Mullings had a real task on his hands to steady the ship after not picking up any points in their first four games. The 1st team eventually finished 8th in the league, picking up points in the crucial run-in, culminating in a fantastic performance against relegation rivals Newcastle United at the final home game of the season. It was very much mission accomplished by Trevor and his team, giving them the opportunity to now rebuild over the close season.

The boss said:  “It was a real season of mixed emotions and a steep learning curve for myself. I’m really proud of what we achieved and I can’t wait to continue rebuilding next season. The future is clearly very bright though, with our young reserve side finishing 2nd in their division.”

The junior sides continued to flourish with all four picking up silverware in the Central Warwickshire League, with the U11s, U13s and U18s completing the league and cup double. The success of the junior sides is down to the strong girls’ football infrastructure that Wolves Women and Wolves Community Trust have developed over the years. Sport Manager Laura Milburn oversees the four girls’ sides and spoke of a record breaking season.

Laura said: “What the four sides have achieved this season is remarkable.  Credit has to be given to the coaches who have maintained their professionalism at all times and are always striving to develop players.  I’m excited to see the younger players develop into composed female footballers who will give Trevor selection headaches over the next few seasons.”

All the sides celebrated the season in style at Molineux on the 23rd May, which included a goodbye to three long serving players - Vicky Palin, Lauren Williams and Leanne Rimmer.

Leanne has been involved in with the club for 10 years and spoke of her love for everything Wolves, saying:   “I have always been proud to be a ‘Wolfette’, and I am truly gutted to say goodbye to the club that I have called my home for 10 years.

“When people have asked why I have stayed at Wolves for so long and never left to go elsewhere, I always say the same thing – there is no other club like Wolves, and everyone always ends up back there eventually.

“I sure hope that’s true for me one day.

“Thank you to everyone involved in the club, the supporters (yes you London Wolves!), anyone who has sponsored me over the years (especially Mr Jody Craddock), the amazing staff I have had the pleasure of working with, and finally the most incredible team ever: players past and present it has been an honour to wear the badge with you. Words are unable to capture the magnitude of my love for this team, or how much it means to me. There will forever be a special place in my heart for the team that has gifted me with some invaluable friendships and memories. Wolves ay we!”
