Fri 24 May 2024, 08:00|Tottenham Hotspur

Our historic 2023/24 season came to a close on Saturday afternoon.

Securing a 3-1 victory over West Ham United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the final day, it brought an end to one of most memorable campaigns in England’s top-flight division so far.

After 22 hard-fought games in the Barclays Women’s Super League, we finished sixth in the table, just four points behind Manchester United, while we created history in the Women’s FA Cup by reaching the final for the first time.

So, as we say goodbye to 2023/24, we take a look at some numbers behind our campaign.
