“We are delighted to become an affiliated Everton Supporters’ Club and we welcome any fans to join our group. The growth of women’s football in this country has been fantastic to see and Everton is more than playing its part in how exciting and international the WSL has become.

“Walton Hall Park is the only place that people living in Liverpool will be able to watch top-flight and elite women’s football in the heart of our city and, as soon as we are allowed back in, we know with the talent we have on the pitch we’ll see the growth in attendances at our new purpose-built home.”

“In these uncertain times we’ve not been able to support the team in person but we want the players representing Everton at Wembley to know that we are all right behind them. Cup finals are special occasions and any team, and its supporters, should be proud of reaching one.

“We’re hoping as many Evertonians as possible, young, old and in between, will send a message to the Everton Women players wishing them the best and encouraging them to bring the cup home.”

Simply, a great initiative by Everton Women to get fans more involved on the team and the women’s game; an example that the rest of WSL most prestigious teams should follow.
