LFC Women say goodbye to Prenton Park with huge win over rivals Man Utd

Sunday was a good day for both the Men's and Women's teams, as Liverpool FC Women secured a huge three points with a 1 - 0 victory over Manchester United.  The result moves the Reds into fourth in the table, ahead of United.

The match was also the last to be played at Prenton Park after Liverpool FC secured a deal for the women's Team to play at St Helens Merseyside Stadium for the next 10 years.

Liverpool FC Women produced an excellent display on Sunday afternoon, securing a 1 - 0 victory over rivals Manchester United, and leapfrogging the Red Devils in the process.

On the Red's final appearance at Prenton Park, before moving to their new home at St Helen's Merseyside Stadium, Matt Beard's side showed passion and desire to earn a hard-fought victory, one which moves the Reds ahead of their rivals and into fourth spot, with just one game to go.

Jenna Clark was the hero, scoring the game's only goal in first-half injury time, with a close-range header after a well-worked corner between Marie Hobinger and Taylor Hinds.  It was the first time the Scottish International defender has scored for Liverpool since joining the club from Glasgow City last summer.  It was also Marie Hobinger's fourth assist in a week, with the Austrian International ending the season in fine form.

The result, which comes on the back of the thrilling 4 - 3 victory over Chelsea last week, means Liverpool have now moved into fourth place in the WSL table, three points ahead of Manchester United, with only one game of the season remaining.  Sadly, only three teams qualify from the WSL for the Women's Champions League, so Liverpool Women will not have European football next season, but they have still had a fantastic season, and are building a strong squad to challenge City, Arsenal, and Chelsea for the WSL Title next year.

Liverpool's final game of the season is on May 18th, when the Reds travel to Leicester City.  Kick-off is 15:00 GMT

Coach Whiteley Super-Proud of the team

Liverpool Assistant Manager Amber Whiteley was delighted with the three points, and the performance of the team, after a run of tough games recently.  Speaking to the Official Liverpool FC website after the game, Whiteley confirmed,

"We're really pleased to come out with three points and sign off from Prenton Park with the win. It has been a brilliant home for us. It puts us in a great position now to try to secure fourth spot."

"I think it comes down to the depth we’ve got in the squad. We have prepared really well for both games. In both games, against Chelsea and in the game today, they have done the fundamentals of things really, really well. Won the battles. Done all the dirty side of the game. Really pleased to take three points from this game as well."

Liverpool's hero, Jenna Clark, was understandably delighted after getting her first goal for the club,

"It was unbelievable.  I've said it, it's been a long time coming for me personally. That's the way I've been feeling. To get one this season is good."

"The points are massive and the week has been massive for us as well. To come away with six points is really good for us."

The Scotland International also hinted at an exciting future ahead of the Women's team, with the club securing a new ground, and investing in better training facilities,

"There's a lot of positivity around the club in progressing us as the women's side, so it's really exciting."

"Hopefully it can just keep growing season on season. One season at a time, one game at a time. If we try to get more results as we can, I think it'll help us off the pitch as well."
