the teams that will be inducted into the new FA Womenís
Super League in 2011 is the Everton Ladies, currently in
the Premier League National Division. This team is no
stranger to hard work; throughout the last two decades
they have worked their way up through the ranks to
become one of the strongest teams in Britain. They will
surely continue to impress fans with their upcoming
performance in this new League.
Established in 1983, the team was originally known as
the Hoylake Womenís Football Club. The team played hard
and finally began to make a name for themselves in 1988
when they made it to the FA Womenís Cup final. Although
they did lose the final match to Fulham, the team
returned in 1989 and succeeded in beating the Doncaster
Belles. By the 1992/1993 season, the Hoylake WFC finally
earned their place in the FA Womenís Premier League. It
was not until 1995 that the teamís name was changed to
the Everton Ladies.
The Everton Ladies eventually won the National Premier
League Championship in 1998, only to be disappointed the
following year when they lost out to the Arsenal LFC. It
has been a very up and down road to victory for Everton.
Finally making it to the FA Womenís Cup in 2005, the
team performed poorly and lost to Charlton Athletic. The
team fought hard and, despite some setbacks, finally
beat Arsenal in 2010. This win secured the Everton
Ladies place in the Womenís Super League. The team
currently practices in Crosby, Merseyside at the Arriva
Stadium; this facility is home to the menís Marine
Football Club. Current notable players who represented
the 2009/2010 team include: Fara Williams (team
captain), Lindsay Johnson, and Jody Handley.
