Blackburn take opening day honours
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 30 Aug 2021
 
It was a tight opening day of the season in the FA Women's Championship, with four of the five matches played producing odd-goal victories.
 
The only team to win by more than one goal was Blackburn Rovers, who triumphed 2-0 over Sheffield Utd at Bamber Bridge. The scoreline at half time was goalless but Chloe Dixon opened the scoring midway through the second half against her former team, and Aimee Hodgson netted the second to complete a perfect start for Rovers.
 
Sunderland meanwhile marked their return to the second tier of women's football with a fine victory, winning 1-0 away to Coventry Utd. The Wearsiders scored the only goal of the game on the hour mark, Jess Brown converting following good work by Keira Ramshaw.
 
The game of the day was at Crystal Palace where the hosts edged out Bristol City in a seven-goal thriller. City, looking to reclaim their top flight status following relegation last season, got off to the worst possible start when Coral-Jade Haines gave Palace the lead from the penalty spot in the opening minute and Charley Clifford made it two on the quarter hour. Melissa Johnson pulled one back for the Robins but Palace were to restore their two-goal advantage by half time thanks to Kirsty Barton. Haines completed her impressive start with her second goal after the break and this proved to be the strike which gave Palace the points, despite Simran Jhamat and Aggie Beever-Jones giving City late hope by reducing the arrears.
 
Perennial promotion challengers Durham Women have started well once again, beating newly promoted Watford 2-1. The Wildcats went in front after twelve minutes, Lauren Briggs scoring from the rebound after Beth Hepple's shot had come back off the bar and Hepple then got on the scoresheet herself on the stroke of half time. Watford fought hard after the break and pulled a goal back through Flo Fyfe but Durham saw the game out to take the three points.
 
London City Lionesses were another team to produce an excellent away victory, a 1-0 success at Liverpool. An impressive display on the day by the Lionesses was crowned on the hour when Kenni Thompson was brought down in the area and Rianna Jarrett slotted home the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.
