Fulham do the double
 Women's Football News 19 May 2008
Fulham do the double - 19 May 2008 - Women's Football NewsTo emphasise the club's complete turnaround after nearly going under in May 2006, WFC Fulham reserves were confirmed as the reserve division two champions, after Barnet Reserves' 2-0 win over Brighton failed to overhaul the Whites' young side. 
With the first team becoming the first team ever to be promoted back into the top flight from the Southern Division a couple of weeks ago, the reserves team, not to be outdone, emulated the first XI's success to ensure the club a championship double and promotion for both sides.
This massive achievement in such a short space of time, has borne out the club's determination to work through the massive disappointment of losing its funding from the main men's club just two seasons ago. The hard work of the officers and members through fund raising, with 90% coming from sponsors, has been the corner stone of the clubs success.
Fulham Director of Football Fred Brockwell commented: "No one should underestimate the vast amount of effort it has taken us to get back to where we are at this time. The upside is that other clubs who find themselves in a similar position can also take heart that anything is possible if you get the right people behind you, no matter how low you feel after such a devastating blow we had to recover from.
"It's been that much harder for the club after having such fantastic support from the main men's club and particularly the Chairman for so many years, plus the loss of 17 players which included 11 of the first team squad.
"We have already had several enquiries from experienced premier standard players, so things are progressing before we even finalise all the details on the start of training on Sunday June 22nd at our Kingsmeadow Stadium training base. We have, from the start, ensured that we would always try to put in place the best all round facilities we could. This has been a main draw for us as our new website at www.fulhamwfc.com has allowed people to see the quality facilities the club has put in place.
"We now look forward to playing our football back in the National Division and continue to move forward on all fronts. As standards have increased year on year both within the women's leagues and all the National teams, we have to step up a level on the playing front and are very hopeful of securing two large sponsorships if negotiations bear fruit over the next month, which will complement the yearly ones we have received from die-hard supporters of the club."
