Since starting LFC Women Blog (formerly LFCladiesfans) in March 2013, I have been proud to follow and support Liverpool F.C. Women.
Being the first women’s football blog dedicated to one team and growing the following to over 10,000 strong across social platforms has been one of my proudest achievements and one that has led to many friendships being created and opportunities that I could never have dreamt of.
I was going to make this into a sort of, LFC Women Blog ‘best of’ with my highlights from the last six and a half years but there’s far too many so here’s a whistle stop tour…
Gemma Bonner’s winning goal as the Reds beat Bristol Academy 4-3, Natasha Harding FINALLY signing for the Reds after years of teasing, following the Reds internationally: Mandy van den Berg, Amanda Da Costa, Shanice van de Sanden, Yana Daniels, Caroline Weir, Fara Williams, Alex Greenwood etc. etc., that 4-0 win at the Emirates, the penalty shootout win over Reading at the weekend with Sophie Bradley-Auckland smashing home the winning spot kick, two Women’s Super League titles, multiple youth titles, Italy, Sweden, Boston, Chicago, following every single player’s career that has come through and left the Reds, getting to know one of the most dedicated footballers in Yasmine Swarbrick, Gemma Davison’s equaliser at Arsenal, Natasha Dowie, Dowie, Natasha Dowie, Lucy Staniforth’s return from injury, everything Kate Longhurst, watching Niamh Charles and Ashley Hodson transition from the youth teams to the first team, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk’s volley, Satara Murray’s runs on the right, Leighanne Robe’s tackling, Bethany England’s goals last season… I could sit here all day!
Please follow the club’s official Twitter page @LiverpoolFCW for continued updates on Vicky Jepson’s mighty Reds, and if you want to stay updated with me I’m @Hev__91.
Thank you for following over the years! Up the Reds!
