Colne Valley gain promotion - 7 May 2013 - Women's Football News

Colne Valley dug deep to beat a determined Tottenham Hotspur Development side 2-0 on Sunday to claim the Greater London Women's Football League Championship. 
It was a fitting end to an excellent season having been on a 15-match winning streak in the league stretching back to November 2012. The run was also juggled around F.A.Women's Cup commitments where Valley exceeded expectations to become the only County side to reach the Second Round proper of the competition.
It wasn't all plain sailing for the Spelthorne-based outfit as Spurs had title aspirations of their own and only a big win would see them in with a chance. As a result, Spurs started strongly and made much of the early chances as they looked to dominate the game. Valley settled after some desperate defending in the opening exchanges and found themselves in front when Lucy Uttley pounced on a loose ball in the box and poked home from close range. Spurs continued to threaten but could not find a way past Jemma Moss who was in fine form in the Valley goal.
The second half saw a further onslaught from Spurs but the Valley midfield and defence worked tirelessly to close down the opposition and create chances of their own. As the game went on, gaps were starting to appear in the Spurs defence as they pushed for an equaliser and it was only a matter of time until Colne Valley's Megan Hicks raced on to a through ball, shrugged off the challenge from the Spurs centre back and rifled a right footed shot into the roof of the net.
Manager Andy Holdaway was delighted with the win and even more so with the promotion. "We proved in the FA Cup that we could compete at a higher level so I am delighted we will be doing that on a regular basis next year," he said.
"The ladies learned a lot from the Cup run and applied that to our league form. To win fifteen [matches] in a row is a fantastic achievement considering the strength of this division."
Colne Valley will step up to the London & South East Regional League, Division One (London) next season.
