Reading Women sealed a spot in the FA WSL 1 top four with a 1-1 draw at Birmingham City on Sunday.

The Royals knew avoiding defeat would confirm their pre-season target of finishing at least fourth and they got off to a flying start when Brooke Chaplen netted her 12th goal of the season.

Birmingham, who end the season in fifth, equalised through England striker Ellen White just before the half hour mark.

And the two sides cancelled each other out with Reading doing enough to clinch fourth following an end of season run of just one defeat in the last 10 matches.

Manager Kelly Chambers said: “What a season!

“This bunch of players have been unbelievable all season. Goal achieved.

“Time to rest and recover. Excited for next season.”
