Manchester City secured their first-ever Women’s FA Cup title at Wembley on Saturday, courtesy of a emphatic 4-1 win against 2012 winners Birmingham.

Lucy Bronze headed home the opener after a free kick on 18 minutes.

PFA Women’s Player of the Year Bronze was then instrumental in City’s second of the game, crossing for Izzy Christiansen who fired home.

Just after the half-hour mark, the WSL champions went further ahead, with World Player of the Year Carli Lloyd heading home a third.

In the second-half, Birmingham did get themselves a goal, courtesy of Charlie Wellings on 73 minutes.

However, on 80 minutes, experienced midfielder Jill Scott hammered home City’s fourth to seal a convincing victory in front of a (competition) record-breaking 35,271 crowd.

The all-conquering City side add the FA Cup title to the WSL and the FA WSL Continental Cup, making them the first side to hold all three major domestic gongs since Arsenal in 2011.

Quite a season for Nick Cushing’s side!
