Everton Ladies end season with defeat at Man City

Toffees Moved down the table as a result of disappointing defeat

Kirstie Levell

Everton Ladies ended their WSL campaign with a 3-0 away defeat against second place Manchester City Women, who secured a place in next season’s Champions League.

The Toffees had a good first fifteen minutes of the game:

But then in the 22nd minute, former Evertonian Jill Scott scored a long range stunner:

England international Nikita Parris scored from close range after half-time to make it 2-0.

Scott scored again in the 60th minute to make it 3-0 after a mistimed backpass.

Everton Ladies end their season in ninth place but there will be no relegation due to changes to the league structure.

It was the Toffees’ first season back into the top flight of women’s football and they look forward to a promising 2018/2019 after a solid first season back.

Next season will begin in mid-August with the Continental Cup and league fixtures will begin in early September.
