DONEGAL ENTREPRENEUR QUERIES WHY MANCHESTER UNITED HAS NO WOMEN’S FOOTBALL TEAM

first_imgA Donegal businessman has contacted Manchester United FC to query why one of world’s biggest football clubs has NO women’s team.Ian Harkin, owner of the hugely successful Letetrkenny-based children’s doll company LOTTIE was perplexed when he discovered that Manchester United FC had no women’s football team. He was shocked to discover that a worldwide brand like Manchester United FC who also claim to have the largest fan base in the world, does not have a senior women’s team at the club.Manchester United, along with Tottenham Hotspur are the only Premiership clubs that don’t have a women’s senior team.The Moville based businessman decided to contact Manchester United and find out why they don’t cater for a women’s team within the infrastructure of the club.Harkin suggested that within the regulations of the UEFA licensing structure – ALL clubs should make it compulsory to have a women’s team as part of their licensing requirements. Which according to Harkin would provide female players with the same opportunities and legal rights which are afforded to male players.Harkin posted the following message on his LOTTIE Facebook page which includes a number of startling facts about the women’s game.“Manchester United a club which claims the worlds largest fan-base – does not have a senior women’s football team.Following the thrilling Women’s World Cup 2015 tournament, a resurgence in the popularity of women’s football has emerged, but did you know that in the early 1900’s, women’s football had attendances reaching over 50,000 for club matches, becoming so popular that it was perceived as a threat to the men’s game – and so was banned in England from 1921 to 1971?!We believe the UEFA club licensing needs to extend to women’s football, making it compulsory that each licensed club has a women’s team, affording female players the same opportunities and legal rights as the men’s game. At present only 7 countries have adopted this policy, Croatia, Estonia, Lithuania, Northern Ireland, Sweden, Hungary and Georgia.

QSST Wins 18’s Boys Title

first_imgThe teams were locked at 5-all at half-time before QSST ran away with the game in the second half. NSWCCC got out to a perfect start, scoring in their first set of six when Wesley Sefuiva combined with Josh Rozairo to send Jonathan Huskins over on the wing. QSST were quick to hit back however, capitalising on a CCC mistake which saw Jackson Luke score on the wing to level the score at 1-all. QSST hit the lead soon after, when Marlon Doak scored on the wing in the fifth minute to take a 2-1 lead. The experienced duo of Sefuiva and Rozairo were quick to retaliate, levelling the score one minute later before reclaiming the lead when Macauley Dawson was the recipient of a great long ball to take a 3-2 lead. Down the other end of the field, Mathew Couper was on the receiving end of a long ball similar to the touchdown prior, levelling the score at 3-all. Luke put his QSST team in front soon after, scoring his second touchdown for the game, showing plenty of speed as he ran down the far wing to score.  Huskins then scored his second for NSWCCC in the 11th minute, after being on the receiving end of another great long ball, and locked things up at 4-all. Defence then took over, with both teams unable to score for the next seven minutes following plenty of touchdowns in the first stanza of the game.  It looked like QSST would take a one touchdown advantage into the half-time break when Luke Swan scored a touchdown in the final minute of the half. But NSWCCC were determined to lock things up, with Cade Price scoring after the siren to level the game at 5-all at half-time. QSST came back from the half-time break in blistering form, scoring the first four touchdowns of the half to take a 9-5 lead midway through the second half. NSWCCC captain, Sefuiva, led by example shortly after, stepping around the opposition to bring the difference back to three touchdowns, but a double to Theo Majid extended his side’s lead out to five touchdowns. Australian 18’s Boys representative, Mathew Couper, scored his second touchdown for the game, before CCC hit back through Andrew Heffernan. Player of the Final, Lachlan Pierce, continued his impressive game and scored his third touchdown of the half with 90 seconds remaining, to give QSST a six touchdown advantage and claim the title 13-7. NSWCCC’s Josh Rozairo was recognised for his impressive form throughout the event, being named Player of the Series. QSST 13 (Lachlan Pierce 3, Mathew Couper 2, Theo Majid 2, Jackson Luke 2, Jason Norford, Ashley Taylor, Marlon Doak, Luke Swan) defeated NSWCCC 7 (Jonathan Huskins 2, Wesley Sefuiva 2, Luke Tonegato, Andrew Heffernan, Macauley Dawson).Referees: David Baggio, Mick Medlin, Luke McKenzielast_img read more
