League Cup success for Cambridge - 5 May 2011 - Women's Football News

 
Cambridge Women rounded off a fantastic season for their club by winning the South East Combination League Cup when beating Luton Town 1-0 in the Final at Newport Pagnell.
 
The Final was a tight game which was influenced by a strong wind. The first half saw Cambridge have the advantage which they made good use of and dominated possession for large periods. On fifteen minutes, they took the lead when a quick throw in from Nat Richardson released Samara Nche who drove towards goal only to be brought down in the area and Richardson tucked away the resulting penalty.
 
Cambridge created some good chances in the remainder of the half but failed to convert any so went into the break 1-0 in front.
 
The second half saw Luton apply pressure for the opening twenty minutes but Cambridge stood firm and, thanks to some excellent defending and some crucial saves from goalkeeper Verity Crook, managed to keep their noses in front.
 
Midway through the second half, Luton themselves had a penalty awarded but Crook pulled off a stunning save to keep her side ahead. The penalty incident seemed to galvanize Cambridge and, although still under pressure, saw the game out to take the trophy.
 
The League Cup Final success added to the Cambridgeshire County Cup, which Cambridge had won ten days earlier when beating Peterborough 3-1 in the Final. "Overall I think we fully deserved our win which caps a fantastic season for Cambridge Women's FC," manager Kevin Hoover told Women's Soccer Scene. "We've made great strides in the league, finishing a comfortable mid-table and securing two Cups.
 
"Next season is already looking promising as it looks like we'll keep this season's squad together. Hopefully we'll get some consistency in the league which will see us fighting it out nearer the top."
