Liverpool have secured promotion to the Women’s Super League after winning the Championship title with victory over second-placed Bristol City.
They clinched top spot with two games to spare in front of a Championship record crowd of 5,752 at Ashton Gate.
Matt Beard’s side return to the top flight after being relegated in 2020.
The Reds needed only a draw to claim the title, but ran out 4-2 winners – stretching their unbeaten league run to 19 games – to go 14 points clear.
Liverpool captain Niamh Fahey put the visitors ahead before Aggie Beever-Jones levelled a minute later.
But goals either side of half-time from Jasmine Matthews and Katie Stengel saw the Reds move into a 3-1 lead.
Abi Harrison pulled one back with 20 minutes to go, before Missy Bo Kearns sealed the success – and the title – with a fourth goal 11 minutes from time.
Liverpool’s only league defeat came on the opening day of the campaign to London City Lionesses.
Beard, who led Liverpool to back-to-back WSL titles in 2013 and 2014, returned to the club last May after six years away.
