With relegation back, the basement battle is fierce and Yeovil, part-crowdfunded, hope to defy the odds against clubs with Premier League backing
It has been two years since relegation from the Women’s Super League was determined by results. Now it is back. The rejigged professional top tier and semi-professional second tier will look to rebalance, with two teams promoted, pending meeting the tier one licensing criteria, and one relegated into the Championship. The top flight will grow to 12 teams while the Championship will be reduced to 10.
Teams now have the threat of the drop and its financial implications hanging over them again. And Yeovil, for the first time since their promotion as tier two winners in 2016, having not won a game in the WSL are in the hot seat, rooted to the bottom of the table.
