Thorplands win Vicarage Farm fives

Thorplands win Vicarage Farm fives - 5 Jun 2007 - Women's Football NewsThorplands Utd, one of Northamptonshire's newest women's football teams, rounded off their first season in style at the weekend by winning the Wellingborough Vicarage Farm six-a-side tournament.

Sunday's victory over local league rivals Kingsthorpe, 6-5 on penalties in the Final, rounded off what has undoubtedly been an enjoyable campaign and a valuable learning curve for a new team that looks set for bigger things and capable of mounting a realistic title challenge next season if they can build on this season's good foundations.

Thorplands, who are based in the Eastern district of Northampton, outshone all expectations to achieve a league standing which saw them end the season just one place off a top six finish in the Northamptonshire County Women's League, a far greater finish than many had anticipated or expected in a season when their only real two goals saw them aiming to finish higher than bottom of the league and end every game with a result which did not resemble a rugby scoreline. Like many teams, they have at times struggled to field the standard 11 players but team spirit has pulled them through some league games to secure all three points.

The football club provides football right across the board for both ladies, girls and men and although their home at the moment is a council owned pitch with no clubhouse, plans are afloat to build a brand new stadium on land situated at Round Spinney in Northampton with the aim of breaking into the non-league scene within the next five years by securing a place in the Eagle Bitter United Counties League. Playing some attractive and entertaining football this season, Thorplands manager Pete Brewin will have been more than happy with his side's achievements and although his side do not have a clubhouse in which too display their newly acquired silverware, the trophy is sure to take pride of place alongside the Club's recent award for being Northamptonshire Sports Team of 2006.
