‘Affordable, accessible, enjoyable’: United Women ready to inspire in 2022/23


United Women finished fourth in the WSL last term – just a few points shy of the third position that would have entitled us to a Champions League spot for the very first time. But Henry believes the Reds are going places under Skinner, who is preparing for his second season in charge.

 

“This time last year we were all a bit anxious,” she admits. “We didn’t know what our level was. We didn’t know what we could achieve. A lot of people were saying: If we get top half, we’ll be happy. 

 

“But if not for a few really disappointing draws, we could have ended up with Champions League football. We were close. I know that doesn’t count for anything, but I’d like to think we can push on this year. For me, it’s down to the players. 

 

“As a person, I like him [Skinner]. We were at risk of stagnating with Casey [Stoney], I think, and I like what he’s done. I like the way we play, I think he’s done a great job and he’s doing a great job. I hope he can bring success to the club.”
