The Current State of Play in the FA Women’s Championship

More often than not, it is the FA Women’s Super League that grabs all the headlines.

And rightly so, after all, it is the premier competition in the country for Women’s football.

However, that is not to say that ever so slightly below the top flight that things are taken easy, oh no, quite the opposite in fact.

The FA Women’s Championship was formed in 2014 as the WSL 2 and has gone on to become one of the most hotly contested divisions anywhere in world football.

Who is Top?

The current state of play sees Tottenham Hotspur Ladies sitting proudly at the top after defeating Millwall Lioness at the weekend but the Lilywhites are unable to rest on their laurels as the chasing pack are not far behind.

Tottenham currently boast a four-point lead over Charlton Athletic Women after a run of four straight wins.

That has enabled Karen Hills Londoners a little breathing space as they come into the final seven games of the season but perhaps more importantly, a game in hand on Durham in Third.

Manchester United a Major Threat

Manchester United’s story is a remarkable one.

After only forming in 2018, the club find themselves in contention in their very first season of existence.

Managed by former England Captain Casey Stoney, the club has achieved impressive results in its debut campaign including a 9-0 thumping of the London Bees Ladies.

Due to a number of match postponements, Manchester United actually find themselves in the strange position of two games in hand on the top two which if they were to win, would put them top.

One of those games in hand comes against second place Charlton Athletic which is a game that no one will want to miss.

Trouble at the Bottom

Whereas Tottenham, Manchester United, Durham and Charlton are enjoying life at the sharp end of the table, at the bottom it is a different story.

Millwall Lionesses find themselves rooted to the foot of the table with the unwanted record of zero wins from their thirteen games so far this season.

It is a season that is hard to take for Millwall after just missing out on promotion last season after ending the campaign in third.

Crystal Palace Ladies sit just above them in 10th with seven points and Lewes Women just three-points above them.

All to Play For

With the season comprising twenty games, there is still much to play for, Tottenham hold the advantage, but Manchester United’s remarkable rise is certainly one to keep your eye on as the season draws ever on.
