Yeovil Town celebrate promotion

Yeovil Town Ladies secured promotion to the top division of the Women’s Super League as Kayleigh Green and Nadia Lawrence earned victory at London Bees.

The Lady Glovers will go up alongside Bristol City Women, who beat Everton on Saturday to clinch promotion at the first attempt after relegation in 2015.

Both teams can still win the WSL 2 title with one league game remaining.

Yeovil go into the final round of fixtures on Sunday, 6 November ahead of Bristol City on goal difference.

If leaders Yeovil beat Sheffield, Bristol City would need to win at Oxford by at least a seven-goal margin to stand any chance of overhauling the Somerset side.

The two promoted clubs will play in the transitional WSL Spring Series in 2017 and are guaranteed top-flight football until at least spring 2018 as the WSL switches to a winter calendar from next autumn.

Yeovil manager Jamie Sherwood told BBC 5 live sports extra: “I don’t think we played very well at all, but in the second half we saw a performance full of bravery, character and courage, which epitomises our season. It’s what our club’s all about.

“This is a momentous occasion for this football club. I don’t think I can put it into words.”

Yeovil chairman Steve Allinson: “It means a huge amount. Little old Yeovil, they keep saying – we’re one of the top 10 women’s football teams in the country.

“We’ll be playing Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea next season – it’s fantastic.”
