Are all the new WSL 2 teams going to be able to meet their commitments before the big Kick off?   ;)

I would think so ? I mean it is the same problem for WSL 1 teams. And surely the FA will remove the licence of those who don't respect the criteria ?

From a West Ham article :

West Ham Ladies captain Becky Merritt has followed goalkeeper Toni-Anne Wayne in quitting the club to join Women’s Super League hopefuls Brighton and Hove Albion.

 The 27-year-old, who joined the Hammers in 2009, had been made captain following the arrival of Mark Saunderson as Ladies manager in the summer. But in an exclusive interview with Blowing Bubbles, the forward admitted the move to the south coast side – on standby to join the Women’s Super League (WSL) – was one she couldn’t turn down.

question is, if there is truth in this, at what point would a licence be removed? Would BHA go straight from a full season of WPL straight to full season WSL? judging by how quickly Donny Belles heard about their demotion, maybe there will be a WSL 2 club playing without motivation for an entire season? Can't see some top players at BHA having just left for WSL 2 clubs having gone if was going to happen any time soon...

The FA can remove a WSL licence at any time. Tomorrow or before the 2014 season starts if one team does not keep its promises...

Trouble is, as much of the licencing process was 'forecasts and possibilities', how can you tell until season well underway?

So, let the speculation about which team is going back to the WPL begin.....although reading current FA rules and regs (and might have mentioned this before) any team that has voluntarily left their previous league can only get reinstated two leagues lower than where they left. So if it is a Combo club for example, where do they end up bearing in mind new structure in winter pyramid will means FAWP&CL will be step 4 or 5 as development league and perhaps CoEs too deemed higher (look at Game changer pdf)

These rumours about Brighton being on stand by sound highly unlikely.

Our experience is that all the FAWSL 2 clubs are fully engaged in the processes needed and we are 100% certain they all will do what is required.

Also if you think about it, having a club on stand by makes no sense as they would be many months behind the other FAWSL 2 clubs in terms of putting in place the systems you need to be an FAWSL club.

if its Brighton pretty sure they'd have them in place already, been working very hard on dotting i's and crossing t's of late and massive support from the men's as well as people already in WSL licence required 'jobs', already have all the facilities and v.large CoE with age group England players as well as lots of ex CoE players in current 1st squad. cant remember what else was roughly required?

Guessing Donny Belles thought they'd got everything in place too last season...?!

but as has been said, cant see B'ton waving goodbye to 3 of their best players to WSL 2 clubs if they already had this in the bag!
