Somerset Under-18s staged a dramatic second half comeback to land the South & South West Counties Championship trophy at Street FC on Tuesday evening for the first time.
Needing just a point against their rivals for the trophy from Hampshire, the visitors deservedly entered the half time break with a comfortable two-goal lead thanks to strikes from Laura Rafferty and Tamara Webb.
However, Somerset County Manager, Sarah Lawler, made a decisive half time substitution with Somerset COE youngster Emily Donovan entering the fray. She soon pegged back a goal before being brought down by the keeper to earn a penalty and Shauna Cossens slotted home in exemplary manner.
An ecstatic Sarah Lawler spoke to www.somersetfa.com moments after the final whistle, saying: "I am absolutely delighted and proud of the effort the girls put in. They showed tremendous character in coming back against a traditionally strong Hampshire side."
Somerset officials were equally delighted with the result. Somerset CEO, Jon Pike, said: "This is the first ever trophy for the girls team and it shows the strides we have made in recent seasons in developing the women's game in the County at grassroots level."
