Brighton Women manager Hope Powell on groundwork for future WSL success

A season of growth and progress, Hope Powell reflected from her Brighton training base as she prepares her side to tackle their final two games of the Women’s Super League season.

Akin to last term, mid-table Brighton have struggled for consistency at times, but kept pace with the league's mid-tier clubs - hoping to at least match 2020/21's sixth place showing.

For the Seagulls, it's been a period of steady improvement since Powell's appointment in 2017. A project she believes is only just beginning.

Their evolution has been synonymous with the growth of the women's game more broadly; what began as a part-time community club in the 1990s is now a fully established top-flight entity.

Several changes have fuelled that acceleration, Powell believes, but none more so than the game's accessibility which has skyrocketed in recent years.
