Trial to play in women’s super league

These days, women’s football trials are very much in the spotlight and everyone is talking about them. Most of these trials are happening in Europe. Women are found interested to play in these trials. The Women’s Super League is expected to be started from this weekend, and to build anticipation, we’re taking a look at each of the 12 clubs competing which include Arsenal and Aston Villa, alongwith Brighton and Chelsea.

Between England & Spain

This summer, Brighton witnessed a few spectacular events in women’s football. First, there was the 8-0 thumping of Norway in the group stages, before Georgia Stanway who is known to be one of the best midfield players of football lit up the Amex with a thunderous strike that helped England beat Spain in extra time on their way to international gold.

However, attention is now turning to domestic difficulties on the south shore. Hope Powell, a former England manager, is now in her sixth season in charge of the Seagulls, which has seen them achieve promotion and establish themselves in the top level. Last season wasn’t as successful as it could have been after a blistering start faltered and Brighton lost out on a record points total but seventh place is still a decent finish for this team.

Brighton’s unsatisfactory performance

Despite this, there is a sense that Brighton has taken a step back this summer. Maya Le Tissier, a defender, has left for Manchester United, while Inessa Kaagman and Emma Koivisto have also left. When you examine the roles that the three have played, it appears that Brighton may have under performed.

Rebekah Stott’s Return

A recruitment drive has been launched, with the return of Rebekah Stott as the main attraction. The defender has returned to Albion after a year away for treatment for stage three Hodgkin Lymphoma, which he was diagnosed with in early 2021. It’s one of the summer’s biggest stories, and it will be a tremendous accomplishment if she can play any part in New Zealand’s World Cup next year.

New female players have joined

Veatriki Sarri joins from Birmingham City, Poppy Pattinson from Everton, and Elisabeth Terland, Yeeun Park, and Jorja Fox have all joined. However, newcomers bring uncertainty, and Powell will need to hope that her players can gel fast if they are to improve on their point total from last season.Brighton have regularly invested in their women’s team, and their AMEX Elite Football Performance Center debuted last week, which should propel them into the top four in the long run. Despite a positive start against Aston Villa at the AMEX, they are unlikely to have the same fast start this year and may grow as the season progresses. Certainly a team to keep an eye on as the winter months approach.

Current WSL & FA Championship

The current WSL and FA Cup champions, as well as the strongest team in the country, are poised for another successful domestic campaign. They still have the best manager in the game in Emma Hayes, and they have kept the core of the group that helped them win the double last season.Millie Bright, Fran Kirby, and Beth England are European champions, while Pernille Harder, Ann-Katrin Berger, and Sophie Ingle will play significant roles on a side aiming for its fourth consecutive league crown.

So perhaps the focus this season should be on Europe. They were so disappointing last term when they dropped out in the group stage after reaching the final in 2020/21. So far, European glory has eluded them, and Hayes will want to ensure that her side are prepared for the rigors of midweek fixtures, as well as their league obligations.Lauren James has returned from injury and should provide extra depth in the offensive areas. This is a team that has the potential to reclaim domestic dominance, but how they perform in the Champions League will be the ultimate measure of their success in 2022/23.

Fundings raised to overcome the challenges in Women’s Football

An increase in funds will surely assist to reduce the difficulties that organizers experience when holding trials for girls, such as arranging transportation. As said by an expert that sometimes, it is more difficult for female players to travel to the field than boys as they can walk down the field and girls can’t because of security concerns.Despite the pandemic, there has been a considerable increase in the number of girls playing football at Panorama FC. More girls going means a larger pool of talent from which selectors can choose. Those who are not chosen, according to Lephalo, should return to their schools as well as their teams to master all these basic skills they need to develop to become good players. They are still in their youth. They still have a chance next year when there are picks.


At the grassroots level, there is a growing interest in the women’s game. Offensive stereotypes are now being replaced by real admiration and amazement for women in football. Their moment has come, and it all begins with investing in young female players.
