Last call for Leeds Carnegie?

Last call for Leeds Carnegie? - 7 Jun 2010 - Women's Football NewsPremier League Cup winners Leeds Carnegie will hold what looks like its final Annual General Meeting next Thursday having failed to find funding to continue.
A transitional committee, comprising those volunteers still with the club, will be voted in to run the club until the end of the month, when it will formally withdraw its association of the FA unless a backer steps forward.
"It's a sad time for all concerned," said Gary Taylor, one of the remaining volunteers. "Everyone put heart and soul into making last season a success, but every time we took a step forward we got kicked back by one problem or another.
"We've tried to reduce costs by proposing to only run one team next season, but we've still come up short, as potential investors have fallen out of the running. If we could get enough to secure the club for next season that would be a start; there are funds we can apply to, and we've got a proper fundraising programme ready to roll, but we need that secure base to start from.
"At a time when the women's game is growing, we're losing a path to progression for young footballers in Leeds. What's especially galling is that we've had e-mails from parents whose daughters are coming to Leeds to study, on the basis that there's a Premier League side they can try out for.
"Although they provided some financial support over the last two years, Leeds Metropolitan University failed to give us the support we needed to run the club as a business, failed to offer training facilities, failed to help on match days, failed with the student groups who were supposed to help raise funds. Yet their championship winning women's side last year had a big contingent of club players and they are still able to recruit on the back of our name and success this season, which has angered many people here.
"We've tried to get local businesses on board, as backers, investors or shirt sponsors; now we're asking for anyone who supports football and who has the money to spare, whatever the amount, to get in touch and pledge it to help the club."
The Annual General Meeting will be held at Elland Road from 6.30pm on Thursday 10 June. While voting is restricted to club members, members of the public may attend, provided that they let the club know in advance - as spaces are limited - by e-mailing agm@leedscarnegieladies.com.
