Fourth time lucky for Vixens

Fourth time lucky for Vixens - 4 Jun 2009 - Women's Football NewsAn army sponsorship deal and a new high for Leeds City Vixens has taken them into new territory after going close on so many occasions.
 
Next season they will kick off in the Northern Division of the Premier League after winning the Northern Combination, following three successive seasons when they finished as runners-up.
 
This season, they were finally able to capture the title having led the table virtually all season, despite a late challenge from eventual runners-up Rochdale.
 
Martin Cockerill, founder of the club in 1993, told Women's Soccer Scene: "It's been a long time coming and it felt like the powers that be were determined to stop us at all costs. We may have a City name but we are not aligned to any of the big names of soccer like almost every other top club these days.
 
"When we started out there was little bureaucracy and clubs were independent, unique and full of character. Today we get rule after rule that seems designed to keep the independent clubs in their place. I hope we give some ray of hope to the many clubs in the country that are battling against the odds to stay afloat."
 
Since November 2007 and the appointment of Matt LeClair as Head Coach, the Vixens looked set to finally break through. Matt focused on the title and only lost one league game in almost two years.
 
Matt and the girls now set their sights on reaching the top of the next summit and they believe they have the quality and determination to go to the next level.
 
Leeds City Vixens LFC welcomes approaches by ambitious players who want a fresh start in a club with a difference.
