Bristol City manager Lauren Smith says fan told her to stay ‘in the kitchen’ | City of Bristol Women


Bristol City manager Lauren Smith has revealed he was told to stay ‘in the kitchen’ while watching the men’s side against Sunderland on Saturday.

Smith was present with her players at Ashton Gate to watch Robins lose 3-2 and later tweeted a comment made to her. “Supporting Bristol City with the team today, and I was told women shouldn’t be in football but in the kitchen,” she wrote.

The incident comes less than a week after England euphorically won the European Women’s Championship, beating Germany in extra time in the sold-out final at Wembley, and Smith promised she and her team would do their part to prove the male viewer wrong.

“So a message to this guy, we welcome you anytime to Robins HPC (High Performance Center, the home ground of the women’s team) to prove you very very wrong!” she added.

City’s men’s team offered their support, sharing Smith’s post with the response: “We totally condemn such abuse. This behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Ashton Gate. We fully support Lauren Smith and are proud of our women’s team.
