Newquay fly flag for Cornwall
 Women's Football News 11 Jun 2007
Newquay fly flag for Cornwall - 11 Jun 2007 - Women's Football NewsNewquay are another side which has emerged from the lower levels of women's football and their South West Combination title success will make them the first Cornish team ever to play in the Premier League.
Newquay started their second season in the Combination with a 4-2 win against Clevedon. Two more wins, and then defeat away against QPR, this was again followed by two victories before losing away at Swindon Town. From this point on Newquay gained maximum points until the penultimate game of the season when they went down 2-0 at home to Luton Town, but the League had already been won by this stage.
Having suffered with three long term injuries (these players missed most of the season) plus the loss of highly rated keeper Carley Barber to university, the team had to adapt with many players having to play out of position including striker Dawna Dennett who was forced to don the keepers jersey on several occasions before Bristol Academy helped out by allowing Sally-Anne Thompson to join. Mid-season saw the arrival of striker Helen Wood from Gloucester City, and a few weeks later Leanne Lapham arrived from Frome Town. They settled in straight away and became invaluable to the team, scoring on a regular basis. Unfortunately Leanne Lapham broke her leg in the Cornwall County Cup Final after scoring three goals in the first half and helping them to their sixth consecutive win. Newquay's injury problems then struck again when Katy Barker broke her leg in the last game of the season.
One of the high points of the season for Newquay was beating local rivals Plymouth Argyle for three weeks in succession and another came when a crowd of over 250 turned up for the visit of QPR and gave tremendous support throughout the game. Mixed emotions were experienced on the same day was when Luton Town formed a guard of honour to applaud Newquay on to the pitch and then took away their 100% home record with a well deserved win.
After five promotions in the seven years since they formed, and with over 4,500 miles travelled in the current season (maybe some sort of record for an amateur team?), Newquay are once again looking forward to the challenge of testing themselves at a higher level.
