YEOVIL Town Ladies boss Lee Burch has announced he is to exit the Glovers.

Burch oversaw a challenging Women's Super League season burdened by financial issues as the Somerset club finished bottom of the league.

The Glovers, who played their home games at Dorchester Town's Clayson Stadium, were eventually relegated two divisions.

It is not yet clear where Yeovil will play next season.

In a statement on Twitter, Burch said he believes "the club is in good hands going forward" and insisted he would remain a "supporter" of the Glovers.

Meanwhile, Yeovil Town Ladies owner Steve Allinson has revealed that there are discussions underway with a party that has ‘a very serious intention to take the ownership forward.’

Allinson hopes that a deal can take place as early as next week, but the owner has thanked everyone for the support the club have received after they dropped two divisions.

Allinson said: “I am very pleased to confirm that I am in discussions with one particular party who has expressed a very serious intention to take the ownership forward and build the club so we can continue our mission to provide top quality football for girls in the south west.

“The prospective owner has a track record of doing that already in other high level clubs and I am sure will bring huge enthusiasm and commitment.

“We are already talking about opportunities further afield too.”

Allinson took time to thank the support that has come in since it was announced that the club had failed in their application to the Championship, following their relegation from the FA Women’s Super League.

Allinson said: “I have been very humbled by all the messages and pledges of support from so many people from all parts of the game since we shared the position of the club, and the need to find new owners to move us forward.

“These messages have been too numerous to reply individually, but each and every one is very much appreciated and show that what we have been trying to do has a place in the women’s game and beyond.”
