Concerns for clubs struggling to meet new Women's Super League criteria

Some clubs are struggling to meet the criteria for the new structure of the Women's Super League

There are concerns some clubs won't meet the criteria for the new structure of the Women's Super League, with the deadline for applications on Friday.

The new criteria requires all top-flight clubs to be full-time - something the FA says will be a 'landmark moment' for the women's game in the UK.

The new competition will be the first full-time women's football league in the UK.

But there is a clear disparity between clubs generating funds for the application, with top full-time sides such as Manchester City being in a more comfortable financial situation than part-time sides like Yeovil Town Ladies.

Yeovil have one of the highest average attendances in the league but are facing a tough task of raising the money needed to gain a Super League licence.
