FA Women’s Super League: Week 22 Review

It was the final day of the WSL campaign and all matches kicked off at the same time. Less than two hours later Chelsea were crowned League Champions for the second successive year, Brighton would achieve their best ever league position at the expense of Bristol City who were relegated. Spurs would win for the first time in eleven matches, while Villa would do something Everton couldn't all season - get a point off a top four side. West Ham didn't manage to get that elusive home win, but against Manchester City was that really much of a surprise? We're doing it slightly differently this week. Here's a minute-by-minute on how week 22 played out in the FA Women's Super League...

FA Women’s Super League – Week 20 Review

It was 'draws galore' for teams at the bottom of the WSL this week, which means it's 'as you were' for Bristol City, Aston Villa, Birmingham and West Ham... Meanwhile, Ella Toone was in sparkling form for Manchester United as they walloped Spurs 4-1; and Arsenal beat Brighton at Meadow Park courtesy of a Jordan Nobbs brace to stay ahead of the Red Devils for that final Champions League spot. Give that barbeque a clean people, the sun's finally out: oh, and it's week 20 of the Women's Super League...

FAWSL – Week 20: Royal Blue Fingertips on the Title…

Chelsea took another significant step towards securing back-to-back WSL titles with a 2-2 draw at Manchester City on Wednesday night. In a lively end-to-end encounter Sam Kerr opened the scoring with a header in the 25th minute. Chloe Kelly equalised just before the half hour, but the reigning champions were back in front four minutes later when Pernille Harder converted from the penalty spot. City were much the better side after the break and Lauren Hemp got them back on terms with 16 minutes to go. Chelsea keeper Ann-Katrin Berger then made two outstanding stops from Hemp and Georgia Stanway, before Lucy Bronze headed agonisingly wide in the dying seconds...

Canada’s Win Built on Robust Organisation and England Errors

England gift-wrapped victory for Canada with sloppy defensive mistakes at either end of this match at the Bet365 Stadium, Stoke.  Évelyne Viens picked Demi Stokes’ pocket in the third minute to fire the Canadians in front. Four minutes from full time, substitute Nichelle Prince pounced on a poor first touch from keeper Karen Bardlsey and stabbed the ball home virtually on the goal line...

Wasteful Lionesses Lose to ‘France B’

DESPITE registering eighteen shots on goal, England were roundly beaten by France at the Stade Michel d'Ornano in Caen.

Fran Kirby reduced the arrears from the penalty spot with eleven minutes left. France got their crucial third goal three minutes later when Kadidatou Diani set up Marie-Antoinette Katoto to convert from close range...
