Leicester City will play in the Women’s Super League

Leicester City will play in the Women’s Super League in the next season after Foxes already guaranteed their promotion with 2 games to go.

Leicester have won 15 games and lost only one of their 18 matches so far which was enough to join the elite in the next season. The club, formed in 2004, became a full-time team and a serious contender for promotion in 2020, after King Power, owners of the Leicester’s men’s team, took them over.

“This is my hometown club, and it’s a bit of a family venture.”

– Jonathan Morgan

Under the guidance of the coach Jonathan Morgan, who have been in the club for 7 years, they managed to win the Women’s Championship after a 12-game winning streak this year. Morgan’s family has been deeply involved in the club since the beginning. Jonathan’s sister Jade became general manager in 2015, other sister Holly is currently the team captain while their father Rohan is a chairman.

When Jonathan took over, there were only 12 players in the club, they were changing in a tin shed and training in car parks. Now the women’s team have the same conditions as men’s team, with access to three pitches, gym and fully professional staff.

“I will never forget where we started. This is my hometown club, and it’s a bit of a family venture. It makes me really appreciate everything more. To build such a strong squad over the seven years, go up through the different leagues and have the journey we have been on. To finally get to the top of the women’s game is something that’s really special to me and my family. Now we want to finish mid-table [in the WSL], then be in the Champions League, then win the WSL. We are a progressive club and nothing is off the table for us,” Morgan told BBC.

And who knows, maybe girls can also repeat Leicester’s fairytale when their men’s team won the Premier League in 2016.
