Dunno, but I think the same things happening at Millwall.

Looks like a cost thing at first glance. Off load a loss making women's team that struggles on the pitch, run girls and womens teams as part of the charitable arm of the club.
Always a bit suspicious of a press release that lands at 9pm at night. If they were proud of what they were doing/if it was a good thing...

Could the shift be in some way FFP related?

99.9% certain women's football is one of the exemptions.

Oh Ok, fair enough. I was just thinking that putting it into community might take it off the payroll or at least make it slightly easier to identify as not being 'normal' wages etc. Maybe they just want to show as much as possible as community spend with the new stadium proposals flying around at the moment.

Big fan of women’s movement, especially from behind.

The men’s side are affectionately known as Charity Park Rangers, perhaps this is the way round FFP.

I read it that club are giving up the 'top' team - currently play in level 3 of Women's football - in the hope that by starting a team based on current 'reserve' side and backed up by an Under 21 team - they will eventually produce a better 1st team.
For as long as I have been officiating on the women's 1st team they have always finished bottom or 2nd bottom and often only saved from relegation by a league 'restructure' - ie teams not getting promoted/relegated.
It must be hugely loss making as the gate money doesn't even cover the match officials'' fees (which are NOT huge!)
