Crystal Palace promoted: WSL awaits for Championship winners

Written by on April 29, 2024

Going forward, Palace blew teams away, scoring 55 goals in 22 games. Wales international Elise Hughes has been the star with 16 strikes.

Hughes’ crowning as the Championship’s top scorer, however, was spoiled when she suffered an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury against Charlton in Palace’s penultimate game, condemning her to months on the sidelines.

“We were all gutted to hear about Elise’s injury, but we are happy and proud of the season she has had,” said Everett.

Palace’s achievement is even more impressive given the issues of their previous season when former manager Dean Davenport left the club.

Davenport had been manager for 10 years, overseeing the club’s rise.

He was suspended, alongside two other members of staff, in March 2023 following a complaint about conduct and officially departed two months later.

Kaminski has succeeded in taking Palace to the next level.

This is the first time she has been a boss at senior club level, having spent five years in charge of the England Under-19 team and been assistant manager when Tottenham were promoted to the Women’s Super League.

She joined Palace from Charlton, where she also served as assistant manager, and has now beaten her old employers to promotion.

Next season will be a different challenge entirely, now the big time beckons.

As Bristol City’s struggles proved, it can be tricky for promoted teams to survive in the WSL.

“It’s a big jump in the league, we have to respect that, so we will look into what those challenges are,” Williams said.

What is clear for now is that this vibrant Palace side have earned the right to take on any and every challenge that stands in front of them.
