LFC Women'Words can't describe the togetherness of this team'
Matt Beard hailed the togetherness of his Liverpool FC Women squad after the Reds lifted the FA Women's Championship trophy.
Liverpool secured a return to the Women’s Super League in early April and were given the chance to celebrate with supporters following the club’s final home game of the season on Sunday.
Beard saw his outfit topple Sheffield United 6-1 at Prenton Park in front of a record crowd of 2,138 before the ceremony got under way post-match.
“It’s what it has been like all season, the focus, work-rate and the way they’ve been performing. We blew them away today,” Beard told Liverpoolfc.com.
“I’m so proud of them. All year I have been quietly confident, but we’ve kept our feet on the ground – we deserved that today.
“I’m really proud and really pleased for the fans. It’s been a tough few years with COVID and getting relegated.
“Now we’ve managed to get back up. We’ve got one more game, which we’ll be focused on, and we want to finish the season on the run we’re on [20 games unbeaten].
“Words can’t describe the togetherness of them. They’ve been absolutely brilliant; I think today summed that up.”
On being able to celebrate with supporters at the conclusion of the Blades clash, he added: “The last two times I’ve won [a trophy with the Reds], we won it on the last day, so nothing was planned or prepared.
“It was good we could celebrate properly and we could do it in front of our fans.”
