This year, Tipton Town LFC won a place in the first ever Lucozade Sport Performance League.
"Only 80 amateur teams from across the country succeeded, using their real life fixtures and results to compete in a virtual league," says Tipton secretary Susan Albrighton. "The teams would never ever meet on the pitch, but get to compete against each other on a level playing field. It also meant we received a taste of what it is like to be professional and pampered!
"The first instalment of our prize was a pallet of Lucozade drinks and food-based supplies and then came two Lucozade drinks carriers complete with 1-litre bottles. This was a great boost to our club and gave us all a sense of 'star' treatment. They all went down really well. We have now also received another pallet of drinks and energy supplements to keep us going through the winter months and rubbish weather.
"We had a visit last week from the fantastic Lucozade Sport Scientist Academy Katie Fownes, who tested the girls on five separate aspects of their performance. They use really expensive equipment to judge how fast we were at running in a straight line, agility, serpentine and jumping. We knew we weren't going to be the best out there, but we had a great laugh competing against each other."
Everyone's results can be viewed online by visiting http://www.lucozade.com/sport/sports-and-exercise/football/amateur-football/get-a-team-test/performance-test-results/default.aspx.
"We have now received our new kit, a kit bag and two brand new Nike footballs," adds Susan. "The kit is being printed with our logos as we speak, so should be on our backs really soon."
Tipton Town Ladies now have a super opportunity to talk about their club, performance and women's/girls football in general, live on TalkSPORT radio on December 28th when the club's Welfare Officer, Claire Bolton goes out live on the airwaves. Tipton have only managed to fulfil two league fixtures due to atrocious weather but have a 100% win record so far as well as reaching the Second Round of the Birmingham Open Cup.
"Going forward, we have chances to win loads of prizes and with our current results, we stand a really good chance of being top of the league for Christmas," says Susan. "I would recommend any amateur ladies club to sign up for the LSPL for next year, it has made grassroots football loads more fun."
