Exciting times for the Vixens!
 Women's Football News 23 Sep 2004
Exciting times for the Vixens! - 23 Sep 2004 - Women's Football NewsAfter last season ended in relegation from the Northern Combination and merger negotiations with Wigton Moor finally collapsed, who could have envisaged the magnitude of the recovery that is now taking shape at the Leeds City Vixens Football Club?
Less than three months ago, John Southcombe was elected Chairman and wasted no time in turning his vision for the future into reality, after setting himself some essential early goals.
He wanted a facility where the whole club could play, train and relax socially together. Quality coaching had to be established in line with the FA Charter, school links had to be developed, a young qualified coach needed to be sought for the open age team and new players would be needed to revitalise the women's team fortunes. The list was ambitious but possible, if only he could find a commercial partner who would work with him on a long term basis and enable the club to build on it's strong North Leeds brand.
August came and John, with his growing team of supporters, finally found the perfect match. The Mears Group PLC are a rapidly expanding company successfully tendering for major Council contracts in the UK but more recently, in North Leeds, where the Vixens are based.
Therefore, in line with their company policy of supporting the local community Mears have linked up with the Vixens to make a real difference to the North Leeds club. The deal could be worth around £50,000 over five years if the Vixens can match their own ambitions and demonstrate the money is really making a difference. Although of that there is little doubt!
Already John has found a clubhouse complete with an all weather pitch and quality grass pitches at the leading private sports facility in North Leeds organised by the Adel Memorial Association. Paul Holmes, a young UEFA 'B' coach has been hired to coach and manage the women's team and for the first season in over six years the Vixens have got off to a flying start with a 100% record in their first four games.
It is anticipated that as the rapidly growing ranks of over 100 junior players move up to the open age team they will also be able to fulfil their ambitions by playing at a high level of football.
Leeds City Vixens now have the management, the facility, the players and the resources to do the job. The pressure is now on to see if they can bounce back to the Northern Combination league after an incredible turnaround as they seek promotion from the Premier Division of the Yorkshire &
Humberside League.
