Women’s Championship club Coventry United has announced its intention to go into voluntary liquidation despite the fact that they went fully professional this season. The announcement was made on social media only hours after the players themselves were left in dismay that they had lost their jobs.

“With regret, the board of directors has instructed BK Plus Limited to assist with placing the company/club into creditors voluntary liquidation,” a statement from Women’s Championship club Coventry United said. “At this point, we cannot go into detail … We would like to thank everyone for the support over the last seven years. The club will keep you updated on developments of the club’s future.”

“I have no words. To come into work and to find out that you no longer have the job that you’ve always dreamed of is heartbreaking. Thanks for making me a professional footballer and for the best 2 seasons.” Coventry goalkeeper Olivia Clark said.

“Sometimes life is filled with things outside your control! I’m heartbroken. Thank you for making my dream of being a professional footballer come true! I’ve made the best memories and friends.” Holly Chandler said.

“The FA is aware of the situation at Coventry United and we are liaising with all relevant parties. Our priority right now is to gain as much information as possible to ensure we can provide the right support to those associated with the club.” a statement from the Football Association said.
