Wales beat England to launch of Women's Super League

As the Football Association was belatedly putting the Super League back on the agenda last week, the FA of Wales was launching its own version with eight teams starting an inaugural Women's Premier League campaign, reports The Guardian. The winners qualifying for next season's European Champions League.

"We are keen to develop the women's game in Wales and create a clearer pathway to our improving international team," said the league secretary, John Deakin.

"We aim to raise standards and hopefully in future we won't see so many Welsh players going to English clubs or elsewhere."
