The FA have announced which Women’s football clubs are now in Tier 1 and Tier 2 of the WSL after a recent reshuffle.
The FA have reshuffled their top two tiers of women’s football and it’s great news for Yeovil Town, who keep their place in Tier 1, as do Bristol, Birmingham and all the usual suspects.
Brighton also join Tier 1, which will be a massive boost for the Seagulls.
Here’s how Tier 1 now looks:
- Bristol City
- Man City
At least two spaces remain in Tier 1, which clubs can apply for up until 9 March 2018.
In Tier 2, Sheffield, Doncaster Rovers Belles and London Bees all keep their spots.
Here’s how Tier 2 looks now:
- Aston Villa
- Doncaster Belles
- London Bees
There are at least five places up for grabs in Tier 2, which also have to be applied for by 9 March.
Sunderland, Oxford United and Watford are the only teams to drop out after deciding not to apply. However, the Black Cats are said to be planning to by March.
There’s not a great deal of change except for Brighton moving up a Tier, so congratulations to them. Also, congrats to Yeovil for keeping their place in Tier 1.
