Heskey Coaches LCFC Women to WSL Promotion (Sports News) – BetVision Brand Ambassador and world-renowned former England striker Emile Heskey accomplishes yet another feat by coaching LCFC Women, the women’s football team of Leicester City, to victory in the FA Women’s Championship. Because of this, the Foxes have earned a promotion to the top-flight of English women’s football — the FA Women’s Super League (WSL) in only their first year! More about this news below.
Heskey Coaches LCFC Women – From Ambassador to Coach
Heskey, a Leicester native who played for the namesake men’s team from 1994-2004, has helped the Foxes elevate their game immensely. Under his coaching, the squad has topped the women’s table in the Championship, winning 17 of their 18 games this season. In February, they were able to top the table against the Liverpool Women, who were favourites to secure the only promotion spot in the Championship. Afterwards, their 2-0 victory over London City Lionesses helped them secure the Championship title, earning them a promotion to the WSL. Finally, on 4 May 2021, LCFC Women officially lifted the trophy.
Heskey Coaches LCFC Women – In His Own Words
“I love being able to give back to football, in any way I can,” the BetVision Brand Ambassador said about his stint to the Mail Online. “I look to show some of the stuff I honed my skills on, or help them in every-day life. It’s the same principles coaching women to men. I used to take part in training with them but I’ve stepped out now because I don’t want to be embarrassed anymore!
“You’ve got to be proud of the girls, they’ve done fantastic. It’s our first year, you come in tentatively not knowing what you’re going to achieve during the season. But our manager and the coaching staff and the girls have been fantastic this year and capped it off this game,” Heskey said in an interview after the LCFC Women defeated Charlton Athletic Women 4-0.
“Massive, absolutely huge!” he answered when asked how the team will do in the Women’s Super League. “Hats off to them, because it’s been a tough long season. There’ve been a lot of ups and downs, but they’ve grinded on and got the results we needed to get to the WSL. We’ve got to kick on from there. Again, we’ll have to forge a plan to get to the top, but that’s where we want to be. We’re not just going to be competing.”
Heskey summed up his feelings for his team by describing them as “a great bunch of girls who have been fantastic for me, personally. This is the first year I’ve been on the women’s side of football; they’ve taken me in and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.”
