Liverpool FC have sent out a press release ahead of the new Women’s Super League season, highlighting changes to the Women’s team this term.
With the rebrand of the Women’s Super League, a fresh and exciting team under the new management of Neil Redfearn, Liverpool FC have taken the opportunity to launch Liverpool FC Women, previously known as Liverpool Ladies FC.
In recent years, the team were crowned league winners for the first time in the club’s history following a 2-0 victory against Bristol City Women in 2013 before retaining the title in dramatic fashion a year later following a 3-0 victory against Bristol City Women on the final day as the Reds jumped from third position to first.
They were also the first team to attract an independent shirt sponsor, partnering with Avon – an important step change for the game.
This season has seen the appointment of Neil Redfearn as the new manager, with a number of significant signings to strengthen the squad, as the Reds look to start the next chapter in their history.
Talking about the move to a new name, Liverpool FC Women’s manager, Neil Redfearn, said: “We are entering a new era for women’s football and this is an ideal time to review every aspect of our team, to ensure we are set up for future success.
“The renaming of my refreshed squad is just one aspect we’re looking at and fits perfectly with the overall move towards a more modern and inclusive game.”
Chief Executive Officer, Peter Moore, added: “I have witnessed women’s football go from strength to strength over the last few years and I’m excited about this new stage in the game.
“We are in a prime position to be at the forefront of these changes, so it was an obvious choice to rename the squad before the new season starts.”
