Arsenal have been crowned the first-ever champions of The FA WSL title after beating Liverpool 3-1 at Skelmersdale United.

The hosts attempted a valiant second-half comeback following a below-par display before the break.

Striker Rachel Yankey scored two impressive first-half goals to put the Gunners ahead, and it was those strikes, plus a second-half Kim Little penalty, that handed Arsenal the title.

After a disappointing opening period, Liverpool hit back when Nicola Twohig took advantage of a mix-up in the Arsenal defence, but it was to prove little more than a consolation.

Arsenal manager Laura Harvey has described winning the first ever FA WSL as the biggest moment of her career.

"It is the biggest moment in my career, without a doubt," she said.

"The girls have been here a long time and this title means so much to them because the league is so competitive.

"We knew it would be tough today, and I am pleased o have got through it with three points.

"I was really pleased with Rachel Yankey, she took the game by the scruff of the neck.

"The first goal was fantastic, and the second one was a great finish. It wasn't the best performance overall, and the girls were getting frustrated with themselves, but in a game like today it was all about the points."
