• Heather Cowan: ‘If we were looking at budgets it would seem a mismatch’
• Manchester City Women’s resources threaten to pull them clear of others
When Birmingham City Ladies walk out at Wembley on Saturday they will be confronted by the best elements of their past and by a vision of the future they hope to embrace. Among what should be a record FA Women’s Cup final crowd will be figures from the days when, back in the 1970s, a thinly staffed club began asserting itself on a regional level. Now they take part in the biggest occasion the domestic game has seen and it is a reason to look both forwards and back.
“It represents the journey of the club from its grassroots days and being led by volunteers to where we are now,” says Heather Cowan, the general manager. “This is a big deal for us and we’re relishing everything that goes with it. We’ll be supported by ex-players and people who helped set the club up all those years ago, so it’s a kind of celebration.”
