Wikipedia - Liverpool F.C. Women

Liverpool Football Club, commonly referred to as Liverpool or Liverpool Football Club Women if distinguishing themselves from the men's team, is a professional English women's football team based in Liverpool, Merseyside, England. They have served as the official women's division of Liverpool Football Club since 1994. Founded in 1989 as Newton LFC and subsequently renamed Knowsley United WFC, Liverpool Ladies and Liverpool FC Women over the years. The club was a founding member of the top-tier Women's Super League in 2011. A year later, Liverpool became the first English football club to offer every female player full-time professional contracts. This decision pioneered the professionalisation of women's football in England and led to Liverpool winning back to back Women's Super League titles in 2013 and 2014. In 2022, they also won the FA Women's Championship, earning promotion back to the Women's Super League, having done so three times previously in 2003–04, 2006–07, 2009–10.


The club was founded in 1989 as Newton LFC, by former England international, Liz Deighan. The club rechristened as Knowsley United WFC two years later; becoming the founding members of the National Premier Division organised by the WFA. Knowsley United reached the final of the Premier League Cup in 1993, but lost to Arsenal at Wembley. The local MP, Eddie O'Hara, tabled an Early Day Motion congratulating the club on extending the annual sequence of Merseyside clubs playing in Cup finals at Wembley. In 1994, the club reached the final of the FA Women's Cup, but lost 1–0 to Doncaster Belles at Glanford Park.

In mid-1994, the club linked with Liverpool F.C. and took on the name Liverpool Ladies F.C.

The club finished runners-up in the following two FA Women's Cups. They lost the 1995 final 3–2 to Arsenal at Prenton Park; after twice being ahead through Karen Burke goals, Marieanne Spacey scored a late winner for Arsenal. In the 1996 final, Liverpool and their 15-year-old goalkeeper Rachel Brown, drew 1–1 with Croydon at The Den, but ultimately lost on penalties after extra time.

For most of the 1990s Liverpool were National Premier League mainstays but a lack of support and investment saw them relegated to the Northern Division in 2003. In 2004, they won the Northern Division and earned promotion, but did not stay long as they were relegated again at the end of the season, having won only two games.

Their biggest rivalries were with Everton, but their spells in the second tier led them to develop rivalries with counterparts of male rivals in the lower tiers, such as Tranmere Rovers. The Merseyside derby was rekindled in the 2007–08 season, after Liverpool won back promotion as 2006–07 Northern Division champions.

Surviving their first season back in the FA Women's Premier League National Division, finishing third bottom, they sacked manager David Bradley at the end of the season. The club were relegated into the Northern Division for 2009–10, but won the league losing just one game all season. Liverpool also won the FA Fair Play Award after playing for the whole season without having a single player booked or sent-off.

Liverpool was one of eight founding teams in the Women's Super League in April 2011.

In June 2012, the manager for four seasons Robbie Johnson stepped down from his position. Under Johnson, the team won just two of their 20 games in his last two seasons in charge, having finished bottom in 2011, and with a similar record in 2012. Johnson's assistant Andy Williams was subsequently promoted to the manager's role.

In August 2012, former Chelsea manager Matt Beard was appointed manager on a full-time contract until 2014. When the club finished bottom of the WSL for the second successive season, Beard overhauled his squad by releasing ten players and making high-profile signings including United States national team defender Whitney Engen. The club then announced a move from the West Lancashire College Stadium in Skelmersdale, to the Halton Stadium in Widnes for 2013. In April 2013, Liverpool became the first football club in England to offer their female athletes professional contracts, pioneering the professionalisation of the women’s game in England. This ultimately helped lead Liverpool to end Arsenal’s nine year dominance and on 29 September 2013, Liverpool won their first top flight title, winning the Women's Super League by beating Bristol City in the end-of-season decider. They retained the title on 12 October 2014 by beating Bristol City 3–0 despite entering the final day in third behind Chelsea and Birmingham City. During that season, Liverpool made their UEFA Women's Champions League debut but were knocked out in the round of 32.

During the 2013 and 2014 title winning seasons seasons, then men’s first team manager Brendan Rodgers showed his support to the Women's first team. He believed in the one club mentality with everybody at all levels of the football club being of equal importance. Working alongside Matt Beard, both men and women’s first teams would regularly train together at Melwood. In the days leading up to the Bristol City game which would see the women go on and clinch their first title, Rodgers said:

"It's brilliant how well they have done and it's a great effort by all of the players. I met with Matt in pre-season and understood what was a huge task for them but they have had a brilliant season, and now they head into the last game with the title in their hands - which is all you could ever want. We had the chance to work with them here at Melwood and you could see the professionalism. They wanted to do it right and all the staff were brilliant, and very importantly the quality was very good on the day as well. I'm delighted for them. We've tried to make sure we have drawn everyone into the one-club mentality this season. I said to Matt no matter how they do on Sunday, we are very proud of them. The work he's done, his staff and the players, they have been brilliant and they have been right up there at the top of the league all season. It's a game that if you win it, the memories can live with you for a lifetime, and they can go and celebrate then rightly so - so we are hoping they can do that on Sunday. We are all very proud of their achievements and what they have done this season. It has been a great effort and the biggest message is: It's in your hands so go and do what you have done all season and play for the win. If you do that, the quality and determination will come through and let's hope on Sunday night we are all celebrating the title by the women."

In September 2015, it was announced that Matt Beard was leaving the club at the conclusion of the 2015 season to take charge of Boston Breakers in the United States. Liverpool had a difficult season, plagued by players' injuries and managing a 7th-place finish in the FA WSL, semifinals of the FA WSL Cup, fifth round of the FA Women's Cup and round of 32 of the Women's Champions League. In October 2015, Scott Rogers, who was Matt Beard's assistant coach, was officially appointed as manager.

In July 2018, the club rebranded as Liverpool Football Club Women.

Over a period of several years, Liverpool never reached the heights they reached from 2013-2015. Not properly replacing Matt Beard, lack of funding and investment, being overlooked when the men’s team moved to their new £50m facility in Kirkby and the departure of then emerging star players such as Caroline Weir, Lucy Bronze, Alex Greenwood, Shanice van de Sanden and Asisat Oshoala ultimately led Liverpool to be relegated on a points-by-game basis in the 2019–20 FA WSL season to the FA Women's Championship for a fourth time, after being in the Women’s Super League since its inception.

After a great deal of backlash, the first steps were taken to rectify the mistakes made by making a number of positive changes. In September 2020, Director of Communications, Susan Black, a key member of the club’s senior executive team, was appointed as Executive Director of Liverpool FC Women in addition to her role. Black was also appointed to the board of Liverpool FC Women alongside Billy Hogan, the club’s Chief Executive Officer. During her time at the club, Black has had an extensive portfolio working on multiple projects. From equality, diversity and inclusion programs, to overseeing the club’s social responsibility programme, Red Neighbours initiative and a board member of the LFC Foundation.

In the 2020–21 FA Women's Championship season, Liverpool Women finished 3rd, after a 1–1 draw at home to Blackburn Rovers narrowly ended their promotion hopes. Midway through the season, manager Vicky Jepson left the club by mutual consent. Assistant manage, Amber Whiteley took charge on an interim basis.

In May 2021, former manager Matt Beard, who led Liverpool to back to back Women's Super League titles seven years prior, was reappointed Liverpool Women's manager. Beards's start in his second stint with the club proved to be a success. In his first season, Liverpool won the 2021–22 FA Women's Championship in stunning fashion winning sixteen out of their twenty two league games, earning their promotion back to the FA Women's Super League. Upon securing promotion Liverpool men's first team manager Jürgen Klopp said :

"Obviously, Liverpool was in the last years not famous for treating or dealing with women's football outstandingly well. They didn't go down to the Championship for no reason....Now they are back and we have to make sure that we use the situation. It is a wonderful team, great coach and I'm really happy for them to get promoted."

Shortly following Matt Beard’s reappointment as Women’s first team manager, further positive changes were made by the club. Liverpool appointed Russ Fraser as Liverpool FC Women's first Managing Director in October 2021. Fraser boasted an impressive resume in the women’s side of the game with significant years of experience. He was no stranger to Beard having worked with him during his time at West Ham United Women, where he oversaw the move to the Chadwell Heath training facility. The team had enormous success, reaching the FA Cup final and consolidating their place in the top flight. Prior, Fraser was the general manager at Reading Women. Under his leadership, the team saw significant progress both on and off the pitch, including a fourth-placed finish in the Women's Super League in his final season. His final post before moving to Anfield, he spent eighteen months at Leicester City Women, where he oversaw the team’s move into full-time professionalism. Off the pitch, he oversaw the first team's permanent move to the King Power Stadium and secured the club's former training ground as base for both the women's first team and academy. On the pitch, successful recruitment led to winning the Championship title securing promotion to the Women's Super League.

An overhauled Liverpool’s first season back in the Women's Super League began with a win over Chelsea at home after a delayed start due to the Death and state funeral of Elizabeth II. Injuries to majority of the first team throughout the season made life difficult. However, with additions in the January transfer window wins over West Ham, Manchester City, Reading, Tottenham and Brighton helped ensure a 7th place finish. Liverpool also reached the Quarter Finals of the League Cup and were knocked out of the fourth round of the FA Cup.

On June 8, 2023, Liverpool officially announced that it had re-purchased their former iconic training base at Melwood to once again serve as a dedicated training base as it had done for 70 years. This time it would be home to Liverpool Women's First Team, Youth teams and Category 1 Professional Game Academy (PGA) after being awarded the licence by the Football Association. To further its commitment to the women's side of the game, both men and women's divisions will sport the official club crest going forward, thus ensuring all teams would be known or referred to as “Liverpool Football Club”. The Melwood facility would continue to run community outreach programms for its award-winning LFC Foundation programmes, as well as for offering education programmes to young people via the Robbie Fowler Education and Football Academy (FEFA).

In their first season at Melwood with the first team, Liverpool Women’s U21’s won the Liverpool County FA Senior Cup, beating Mossley Hill Ladies 8-1 at Walton Hall Park on 7 May 2024.
