Match Highlights

FA WSL highlights: City 8-1 Bristol City

City capped an unforgettable week in emphatic fashion, storming to a wonderful 8-1 win over Bristol City.

A late first-half blitz saw the FA Cup Winners sail into a 4-1 half-time lead and Gareth Taylor's side continued where we left off with a ruthless second half display to return to winning ways in the FA Women’s Super League in style, breaking our all-time record league victory in the process.


City boasted seven different scorers at the Academy Stadium, including Robins goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley whose own-goal broke the deadlock.

Lucy Bronze struck her first goal in her second spell at the Club, while Laura Coombs netted her second in as many games and Keira Walsh claimed her first of the season with a well-taken effort from range.

Wembley heroines Georgia Stanway and Janine Beckie were also on the scoresheet, and Ellen White bagged a brace to net her 50th FA WSL goal, as the hosts marked our first game back on home soil on a joyful note to issue a statement of intent to the early league pace-setters and boost our goal difference.
