Fred stands down at Fulham
 Women's Football News 4 Jun 2009
 
After six years, Fred Brockwell has stood down as Director of Football and secretary from WFC Fulham.
 
Fred was originally brought into the club to add his vast experience of the ladies game to work alongside Marianne Spacey having previously worked and managed at the famous Friends of Fulham Ladies, Wimbledon Ladies (twice) and Arsenal Ladies.
 
He also coupled work in the ladies game along side his continued involvement in his senior men's club, after playing up to semi professional status at Ryman League level. He also got to the top level as a referee, along with managing various sides in his men's set up.
 
On standing down, he commented: "Since we were let go by the main club in June 2006 and after our very successful period as the first professional ladies club in the country, it's been hard work getting the club back on its feet.
 
"I still consider the club's survival and the vast amount of work enabling us to again take part in the Premier League a massive achievement. It turned out to be the most difficult and intense period I have ever been involved with in my many years in football.
 
"We all expect to overcome the many problems, which tend to regularly pop up and bite you on the backside in the organisation and management of most clubs. But to find yourselves with just £50 in the kitty, with the season only weeks away, was very daunting at the time and looked odds on to fail.
The last couple of seasons have see the teams involved in four honours and returned to the top flight at the first attempt, making history in doing so by being the first team to ever achieve that feat. Unfortunately we lost that status this season. There was also the runners-up spot as Club of the Year and Managers award last season, to enhance what very few thought possible after the main club's unfortunate decision to let the senior ladies teams go.
 
"I wish the club well for the future in the new direction they want to go, but feel it is time for me to take on a new challenge, whether that be in women's football or back in the men's game or just watching by taking up a season ticket at Stamford Bridge to watch my team Chelsea, something I have rarely been able to do over the years through the workload in my commitments to the game in general. I am off on holiday soon and will take a look at my options on my return."
