    Hi,

    I'm a journalist that writes about women's football and I'm writing a piece on Man United's old women's team. I want to chat to an ex player (pre-2005 when it ended) on what it was like for women to pull on the United shirt.
    I'm struggling to find even a list of players. I was wondering if anyone on here knew anyone (don't have to be still playing) who was involved at that time.

    Appreciate any help you can give,
    Cheers
    Suzanne

    Nice investigative journalistic skills :lol:

    Have read some of your articles and enjoyed them in fairness. Hayley Bates was part of team, quite outspoken about the winding-up of the club - think she's still around Salford, did a couple of interviews about it, she'd have good insight.

    Hello Suzanne.

    Quick question for you in return. If someone were to leave a full breakfast on your doorstep ... What would your response be ? How would you FEEL ?

    Suzanne, welcome to the forums. Word of advice, the general forum is really where it's at. In here we mainly discuss the shortcomings of Fellaini and such.

    Thanks. Yeh I recognise it's not the most orthodox method! I've been trying to track down HB but not had any luck. Have a few leads beyond this that may get me to someone. Just seen some talk on the forum about the history of the team so thought someone might be able to help.

    Others: A little confused about the fry up comment, assuming a reference to something I'm not aware of. But if I was as hungover as I was last Saturday I'd be
    delighted to find a fry up on my doorstep.

    You should be a regular here.

    Sorry I can't help you with the contacting of any former players though. When you do get the piece finished, would love to have you come back and share it with us or at least share a link to where ever it is published.
