West Ham United fell to a 2-0 defeat at home to Manchester City in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League on Saturday.
A resolute performance from the Irons was not enough to contain Gareth Taylor’s City, who found the net in either half courtesy of Georgia Stanway and Khadija Shaw.
The home team were a threat to City’s backline but were unable to make good chances count as Adriana Leon, Lucy Parker and Claudia Walker all missed opportunities to bring the Irons onto the scoresheet and back into the fixture.
Played in glorious, early Spring sunshine in east London, the Hammers marked a historic achievement ahead of kick-off, as captain Gilly Flaherty headed into her 100th competitive appearance in Claret and Blue.
