The Army gained the result they needed to clinch their third successive Inter-Services title with a single goal victory on Tuesday away to the Royal Navy at the Victory Stadium.
Needing a draw to take the Williamson Trophy, the Army created the majority of chances but were pushed all the way by a determined Navy outfit. A 57th minute Kellie Cox strike separated the teams and allowed the Army to celebrate another successful season.
It soon became clear that the Army were not going to repeat their seven-goal haul of last season as the opening half produced very little in the way of chances. Army keeper Becky Davies had to save bravely at the edge of her area on one occasion whilst her opposite number Sam Covey blocked a Bianca Ross shot.
After the break, the Army team found more space using the pace of Cox to good effect with long crossfield passes out to the right wing. It was one such break which found Cox clear and she drove the ball home confidently from eight yards out. The Navy pushed forward and created a couple of good situations but generally the Army defence stood firm.
Ross had two good chances to settle the tie but Covey kicked one shot away and got down well to block the other for a corner. The Navy keeper made another good save with her feet to deny Cox a second goal and the Army had to be content with a single goal win which was more than enough to ensure they remained dominant in the Inter-Services rivalry.
