Liverpool clinches WSL promotion with Women’s Championship win


Liverpool women are moving on to the Women’s Super League after clinching the Women’s Championship on Sunday. The club’s 4-2 win over Bristol City sealed the promotion with two games left on the schedule.

Niamh Fahey opened scoring for Liverpool, knocking in a loose ball in the box to give the visitors the 1-0 lead.

Liverpool’s advantage was short-lived, with Aggie Beever-Jones responding a minute later to bring Bristol City even.

Jasmine Matthews restored Liverpool’s lead just before the half, striking a close-range shot to put the game at 2-1. The goals kept coming after the break, with Katie Stengel pulling one back to add to Liverpool’s tally.

Bristol City’s Abi Harrison cut into Liverpool’s lead with her 15th goal of the season to put her side within one. Missy Bo Kerns, however, sealed Liverpool’s 4-2 win in the 79th minute.

Liverpool improved to a 15-4-1 record with the win and will play in the WSL for the first time since the 2019-20 season.
