Thornaby FC's Shocking Decision to Remove Female Section Sparks Outrage

Thornaby FC, an English football club, has sparked outrage after its committee voted to remove its entire female section, leaving over 100 players without a club. The decision, announced on the women's section's Facebook page, has been met with widespread condemnation and calls for reversal.

The post announcing the decision expressed disappointment and thanked coaches, volunteers, players, supporters, and sponsors for their dedication over the past three years. It also highlighted the devastating impact on the players, who ranged from under sevens to the first team.

News of the decision quickly spread on social media, with many expressing outrage and disbelief. Commentators condemned the decision as discriminatory and a step backward for women's football. One user, identifying themselves as a player on the under 15 team, called the decision "absolutely vile" and "discrimination."

In response to the backlash, club chairman Garry Morris stated that he disagreed with the committee's decision and had asked the board to reconsider. He acknowledged that the decision had caused significant upset and pledged to work towards a resolution.

The club's official statement claimed that the removal of the female section was necessary due to staffing issues affecting the club's operation. However, this explanation has been met with skepticism, particularly in light of the club's recent arson attack and subsequent rebuilding efforts supported by the wider footballing community.

The decision has also prompted an offer from a nearby football club to provide a place for the women to play. Additionally, calls for the players to leave Thornaby FC even if the committee reverses its decision have gained traction.

The situation remains unresolved, with the club facing mounting pressure to reverse its decision and ensure the continuation of its female section. The coming days will be crucial in determining the future of women's football at Thornaby FC.
