Late fightback benefits Albion - 1 Jun 2011 - Women's Football News

Sporting Club Albion emerged as eventual Champions from what turned out to be the closest fought of the four Combination Leagues, but only after a dramatic second half of the season. 
For much of the campaign it looked as though the most Albion could hope for would be the runners-up spot for the second successive season and a play-off place as Rotherham Utd dominated the table in the Midland Combination.
However a loss of form for Rotherham in their final six matches and a winning run by Albion, fired by the goals from strike duo Hayley Phillipowsky and Ashleigh Neville, suddenly saw them make up the huge gap ahead of their showdown in the penultimate match.
Rotherham then made a much needed return to form and their 3-1 victory left Dave Smith's side needing to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers in their final match in order to clinch the title. Albion got the better of their local rivals and two first half goals from Neville sealed a 2-0 win and the three points they needed to overtake Rotherham, who went on to join them in being promoted via the play-offs.
Jamie Bunch, Sporting Director of Sporting Club Albion, said: "After a nervy start [in the Wolves match], which was understandable with so much at stake, we found our feet in the match and went on to win convincingly.
"It's a huge relief to have avoided the play-offs and it's been a terrific effort by Dave [Smith], his assistant Dave Lawrence and all the players this season.
"They fully deserve their success and we can now look forward to seeing the team compete at the highest level in our history."
