Yeovil end two-year wait for a win

Hannah Short scored Yeovil’s first winning goal since 6 November 2016

Yeovil Town Ladies have won a competitive match for the first time since 2016, ending a run of 41 games without victory by beating Everton Ladies in Women’s Super League.

Hannah Short’s long-range strike before half-time was enough to give Yeovil three points against the Toffees, the club’s first success in the top flight.

The Lady Glovers had not won since beating Sheffield two years ago.

They had lost 38 of their 41 games since then, drawing the other three.

The result, also Lee Burch’s first victory as Yeovil manager, lifts them above Everton, who have dropped to the bottom of the WSL table.

Since winning promotion from WSL 2 in 2016, the Lady Glovers had failed to register a single league win in 32 attempts.

They have also endured a miserable time in cup competitions, losing both FA Cup ties during that period and remaining winless in the Women’s League Cup.
