Peterlee in player plea
 Women's Football News 5 Sep 2008
Peterlee Town LFC moved from Chester-le-Street for the future development of the club, but instead strengthening the playing staff, the club has gone backwards.
The club believed by moving to Peterlee it would be a benefit as the catchment area from Hartlepool, Darlington, Middlesbrough and Eastington was larger than the club's previous base.
Manager Bill Godward commented: "We were hoping that players from those areas would have come forward wanting to play for a team as successful as ours playing in the Northern Combination on one of the best playing facilities in the area.
"The history of success in our club from once a junior section right through to the seniors is outstanding. We have won all junior competitions, leagues and cups throughout the North East and County Cups and promotion in the senior section.
"We are honoured that we have developed girls that have gone on to play at international level, but that is part of the problem that we have.
"We are bringing youngsters on and getting them ready to play at the higher level, but unfortunately, Sunderland and Newcastle come and take them away to play for them.
"We have lost that many players to these two clubs we are now saying enough is enough. Yes we know at the end of the day we can't stop players leaving so we have to find another way of keeping them.
"So we are now looking at different ways to pay players to play instead of them paying us to play.
"We think that a lot of college and university students would play for us if we could pay them to win or draw. Yes, Newcastle and Sunderland are good teams, but we are a good club too.
"At this level of women's football, does the name of a club make such a difference to the parents of young girls that just love to play? We know Sunderland and Newcastle play one league higher than us, but how many players can play at the same time? How many players with these named clubs are left waiting for a game of football when they could be learning their trade with us at our level?
"Our main aim this season is to stop up in the Northern Combination and secure our status to become a semi professional team next season and start paying the players as the men's clubs do. So we are now looking to secure sponsorships from companies that would like to get on board from the beginning of an exciting time for us.
"Everything is in place to do this. Qualified Level 3 coaches, A licence goalkeeping coach, and a professional fitness coach and all these back room staff are working very hard behind to scenes to do what we all love, being involved in football.
"I founded the club in 1991 and I am going to start the ball rolling by donating £500 of my own money. But we are prepared to pay a good commission to any professional fundraiser who could step in and work with us."
