Derby's memorable season
 Women's Football News 6 Jun 2009
 
Derby's memorable season - 6 Jun 2009 - Women's Football NewsDerby County have enjoyed the greatest season in their history and will play in the Premier League for the first time after carrying off the Midland Combination title.
 
Steve Hall's side were always well in contention in what for much of the season was an open title race but it was Derby and Coventry City who emerged from the pack as the two main challengers.
 
Despite a small stutter just before the last match, Derby clinched the title in the last match of the season with a 4-2 victory over Crewe Alexandra in front of a crowd in excess of 1,000 at Pride Park, the day after the F.A.Women's Cup Final was played there.
 
Derby's success was not just confined to the league as they won the League Cup for the second year in succession, winning a thrilling Final 4-3 against Copsewood (Coventry), and also reached the Fifth Round of the F.A.Women's Cup where they were beaten by Chelsea.
 
The league was won by a strong, largely home grown squad captained by Leanne Beet who was ably assisted in midfield by Emily Jeffery. Lauren Steadman is a highly promising young forward whilst Sinead Morgan and Lorna Abbey have formed an excellent central defensive partnership. The Rams also had to overcome the blow of losing leading goalscorer Amy Pashley with a broken leg midway through the season.
 
Derby are a well organised and well run club which has made rapid strides in a short space of time and they are looking forward to the opportunity of playing in the Northern Division of the Premier League next season.
