Women’s Super League: Birmingham up and running after win over Everton

Birmingham City recorded their first win of the new Women’s Super League campaign after a narrow win over Everton. Two first-half goals were ultimately enough to give Marc Skinner’s side victory at Damson Park.

Ellen White opened the scoring with her third goal in two matches before teeing up Charlie Wellings, who ensured Birmingham doubled their lead. On-loan Arsenal striker Chloe Kelly’s strike 60 seconds into the second half was merely a consolation for the visitors, who have now succumbed to successive defeats after returning to the top flight for the first time since 2014.

This was Birmingham’s first win of the season following a last-gasp defeat by Arsenal last weekend. White scrambled home after seizing on Lizzie Durack’s weak punch from a corner. White, the experienced England striker, then turned provider, unselfishly laying the ball off for Wellings who sweeped the ball home. Kelly later looped the ball over the substitute Birmingham goalkeeper Frances Stenson, who replaced Ann-Katrin Berger at the interval. But Birmingham held on for a priceless first victory of the season, with Paige Williams superbly denying Courtney Sweetman-Kirk in the fourth minute of second-half stoppage-time.
