Players get left out of squads and dropped for myriad reasons. Just because she wasn't spotted hobbling around on crutches doesn't "obviously" mean she's a wrong 'un. She's going to be very difficult to replace, I'd be very surprised if I learnt anybody at the club was happy to see her going.

The speed with with a replacement has been brought in makes me think the club were not bothered if she stayed or went

Or it was made clear she wasn't signing, as appeared to be the case in previous articles I read.

Great name. Hampton isn't irreplaceable so it's no biggy.

Given how far the team has progressed in the last couple of seasons, itíll be interesting to see the ins/outs this summer.

I've seen a usually level-headed commenter on things AVW state that they believe a deal for van Domselaar was struck in December.

I don't really know how good she is, we'll get to judge that at the World Cup, but maybe Hampton knew her time as our Number 1 was coming to an end, her contract was up, and she's looked to get something better for herself elsewhere while her stock is undeniably high. Better now than in 12 months' time with a year's worth of splinters in her arse.

Been sat in the garden with the wife and my eldest (fresh from a double drama performance) having a few beers and a chill listening to music. I told her about Hannah Hampton leaving yesterday and we started talking about it tonight, said we had got a new GK in who sounds good, Dutch international etc etc, well the eldest disappeared for a while so my wife went to see where she wasÖÖ on her bed crying her eyes out that HH has left.

To say she is distraught is an understatement, I went up to console her with my similar tales of woe regarding Villa players leaving (started with God, Yorke, Bozzie and a few more) but that didnít work.

She is asleep now, but this is what football does to you, she is 10 in a couple of weeks, about 2 years younger than I was when Yorke left and I was similarly inconsolable.

No word on season tickets yet, possibly linkable to rumours there'll be at least 7 games at VP next season.

Is it just me or does the womenís game seem to have a high turnover? I donít follow closely but I notice quite a few players at different clubs moving about on frees. Not sure if just my mistaken perception or itís more normal.

No you're right, contract lengths tend to be much shorter.

Two-year contracts seem quite standard in the game. Perhaps this will change as we look to progress and are able to make lower-risk buys. Like we've just done, Hampton left after her two years were up, her replacement is signed up for three.
