Leicester secure the Championship
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 9 Apr 2021
 
Congratulations to Leicester City who have secured the FA Women's Championship title with a 2-0 victory over London City Lionesses on Sunday and will play in the Barclays FA WSL next season for the first time in their history.
 
Jonathan Morgan's side went into the game knowing that a win would put them beyond the reach of second placed Durham Women, who did not have a game.
 
Leicester needed to be patient against a well organised Lionesses side, but a chance came on 33 minutes when they were awarded a penalty. The kick had been awarded against Lionesses goalkeeper Shae Yanez but she was to make amends, saving from Charlie Devlin. The game remained goalless until midway through the second half, when Sam Tierney fired home a rebound after her original shot had been blocked. Leading scorer Natasha Flint made the points safe seven minutes later as she volleyed in from close range.
 
Durham need to win one of their remaining two games to take the runners-up spot but the two chasing teams still have a mathematical chance. After they sported identical records going into their matches, Sheffield Utd are now third after winning 3-0 away to Crystal Palace. Katie Wilkinson gave the Blades a seventeenth minute lead, with Rebecca Rayner adding a second on the half hour. Wilkinson rounded off the scoring in the second half with her eighteenth league goal of the season.
 
The result actually took United above Liverpool after they had beaten Lewes 2-0 earlier in the day. The Rookettes approached the match in good form but found themselves a goal behind after seven minutes, the unfortunate Nicola Cousins heading a corner into her own net. A quickly taken free kick led the Liverpool's second after the break, Ashley Hodson crossing for Meikayla Moore to head firmly home.
 
Charlton Athletic can look forward to Championship football again next season following their 3-1 victory over London Bees, who are destined to finish at the bottom. The Addicks took the lead just before half time whe Lois Heuchan poked in from a corner and Elisha Sulola made it two after the hour. Charley Clifford sealed the win from the penalty spot, before the Bees grabbed an injury time consolation through an own goal.
 
Coventry Utd also achieved safety, thanks to a 1-0 success away to Blackburn Rovers. The all-important goal for Coventry came shortly before half time, as Keeley Davies seized onto a headed back pass to lob home.
