Leicester win Championship title to secure first promotion to Women’s Super League
Leicester secured promotion to the Women’s Super League for the first time after beating London City Lionesses 2-0 at home.
Sam Tierney and Natasha Flint were on target for Leicester, who have also clinched the Women’s Championship title with two games remaining.
The Foxes have won 15 of their 18 league fixtures this season, losing just once, as a 12-game winning run has lifted them eight points clear of second-placed Durham.
Aston Villa, promoted to the WSL last season, currently occupy the single relegation slot in the top flight but four teams, including Birmingham, West Ham and Bristol City are separated by just three points.
