Birmingham Furious At Sky Snub

PLAYERS and bosses at Birmingham City Ladies Football Club have criticised Sky after it stopped television coverage of their triumphant FA Women’s Cup final before the crucial penalty shoot-out.

Mike Maybury, the club’s secretary, told the Birmingham Mail that the screening of the match had been a vital opportunity to promote women’s football.

The win marked a fightback from almost going out of business two years ago due to a lack of funding.

Birmingham City Ladies were 2-1 down to Chelsea Ladies with eight minutes of extra time left when Sky switched from the women’s game to instead show the build-up to the League One playoff final between Huddersfield and Sheffield United.

It meant those watching the women’s match missed out on seeing the swapping of shirts at the end of the game.
