We were invited to go watch Liverpool Ladies FC v Reading Ladies FC and as we love to watch live sport we jumped at the opportunity to go and see a game.  We have to admit this was the first time we have been to see a women's football match so we weren't sure what to expect!

Liverpool Ladies play at the Select Security Stadium in Widnes, which is also home to Everton Ladies.  It's not too far from Liverpool itself and going to the stadium brought back memories of watching rugby league there!

Although the crowd wasn't huge, there were still plenty of people watching including lots of families and girls watching.  This was good to see.  The tickets for the ladies games are cheap, so compared the men's game much more affordable for a family.

Much like at Anfield the teams came out to You'll Never Walk Alone before kick off.  We have to admit the quality of the game was much better than we thought.  Liverpool Ladies looked the better of the two teams, they also have England International Alex Greenwood playing.  They had both speed and skill but lacked the killer finishing instinct on a few occasions.  That was until they scored twice in the first half.

At half-time there was some recognition of a local girl's football team, alongside a penalty shootout with some kids from the crowd.  Nothing changed in the second half, with both teams beginning to look tired.  Despite some substitutions the game finished 2-0 to Liverpool Ladies.  It was announced over the tannoy you could wait and have photos with the players after the game.  We didn't do this but it is a great opportunity for the youngsters to meet the players, it was lovely to see the ladies team much more accessible to fans than their male counterparts.

Overall we had a fun afternoon in Widnes and it's always great to watch live sport.  You can see our snapchat story on our Facebook page here.

Have you watched ladies football before, or is it something you'd like to do? Comment below with your thoughts!
