Brislington completed a memorable double on the weekend when they followed up winning the Somerset County League Division Two title by adding the League Cup at the first time of asking.
After a very successful spell in junior football, being undefeated in eight consecutive seasons, they made the move to senior football and have added a ninth undefeated season to their tally adding the Somerset League Cup to end what has been a very bright start to senior football.
Brislington started brightly and were rewarded when Sophie Whelan's dangerous cross bounced and looped over the Staplegrove keeper into the top corner. Brislington continued to press but Staplegrove almost equalised minutes later when keeper Sonja Wootten mistimed a clearance and Staplegrove had an open goal, until a well timed tackle from Jess Osborne denied a certain goal.
Briz continued to apply the pressure and were rewarded when Emily Plummer burst through the Grove defence to put them two ahead. Amber Pullen added a third as the pressure mounted, then Emily Plummer added her second before completing her hat-trick with an assisit from Zoe Gunter when her clever footwork and great back heel split the defence, leaving Plummer through on goal and her low drive nestled nicely into the bottom left hand corner to make the score 5-0 at the break.
The second half saw Staplegrove come out fighting and try to take the game to Brislington. Staplegrove showed some good spirit in trying to get back into the game but Brislington's composure in defence and midfield made them very difficult to break down with some great passing movements.
Staplegrove's striker produced their best moment of the second half when turning neatly in the area only for Jess Osborne to once again provide a last ditch tackle to prevent a goal. Brislington continued to dominate and were almost rewarded when Leigha Milkins struck the bar from 30 yards but their persistance finally paid off with some clever play when Charlotte Reardon crossed the ball for Abbie Southway to latch onto and volley past the hapless keeper.
Brislington could finally celebrate an excellent 6-0 win at the final whistle in the knowledge of winning the league and cup double in their first season at senior level.
