Manchester United’s men may have disgraced themselves once again on Sunday but the women made history.
Having had an application to join the second tier of the Women’s National League approved in March, Man United’s Women played their first game against Liverpool Women on Sunday.
And they got off to the perfect start, with Lizzie Arnot grabbing the game’s only goal from captain Alex Greenwood’s low cross with just ten minutes left.
Here are a selection of photos from a truly momentous game for Women’s football.
