Winners!: Rising from the Foot of the Women's Football Pyramid (Paperback)
To start a football club from scratch is not for the faint-hearted. It is a journey that features desolation, pain, joy, excitement and happiness. One day there is an implicit wave of expectation to succeed, this is very quickly met with a purposeful craving to see you decline. The blueprint was not a short-term project, it simply could not be. Being emptied into the foot of the pyramid; quelled, suppressed and stifled, this was a long-term expedition being assembled. Erratically illustrated were names of modern football clubs; what they looked like, how they operated, what structure they had in place. This very quickly allowed the foundations to be solidified, bit by bit. Yes frustration, disappointment and failure is the emotion discerned when four managers in four years scuttle through the revolving door of a reserve team that deserve so much more. Consistent success does not happen overnight. To have achieved four league titles, four back to back promotions, two of the most successful FA Cup runs the club has ever endured and a total of ten trophies for the senior first team, this is about setting standards to reach the very top.
