Bristol City are back in the Women’s Super League after a 2-year absence.
As the season came to an end, let’s take a look at how the season played out.
Bristol City managed to scrape promotion even after losing 2-0 away to Birmingham City on the final day.
They guaranteed promotion over a convincing 4-0 win over Charlton Athletic at Ashton Gate, the week before.
The season before, Birmingham City got relegated from the WSL and they were nearly going straight back up, if their form hadn’t of dropped over January, this could have been a different story for them.
This just shows how tight it was for the front free over the season.
London City Lionesses came third with only 3 points below the leaders, Bristol City. They also had the best goal difference in the league with plus 29.
It was the London City Lionesses striker, Sarah Ewens, who won the golden boot, by scoring 12 goals in her 22 games across the season.
Unfortunately for Coventry United their time in the championship is up. By only getting 7 points in 22 games, they didn’t stand much of a chance of staying in the league.
They were 11 points off the team above Sunderland on 18 points and only managed to score 16 goals across the season.
They also conceded 75 goals in 22 games.
The newly promoted side Southampton had a very good season, with their aim of just staying up they managed to finish 6th on 33 points.
With London City Lionesses finishing in the top 3 for the last 2 seasons, can they go on to win the league next year?
