Barry's pride at Plympton success - 26 Mar 2014 - Women's Football News

 
AFC Plympton manager Barry Metters was full of praise for his team after they clinched the Westward Developments Devon League title. 
 
Plympton put themselves beyond the reach of their rivals with a 2-2 draw against Feniton last Sunday and Metters told Women's Soccer Scene of his delight at the team's achievement.
 
"We have had a great season, winning all our first 13 games, most of them quite easily," he said. "The hardest two games were by far against Feniton who we struggled to beat 4-3 at home and then drew 2-2 away, this being the point that gave us the title in our fourteenth game with two league games still to play. We also still have the league cup semi final to play so are still on for the double.
 
"Our only defeat so far this season was a 3-1 loss to Exeter City in the Devon Women's Senior County Cup semi final. This was a great performance against a team who play three leagues above us."
 
As for the key to his team's success, Barry insists that consistency has been a big factor. "The main reason the team have done so well this season is due to the reliability of the girls, with many of them playing in every game this season," he said. "Although we have scored over 100 goals in all competitions with the strikers all getting double figures (Samantha Metters 29, Chez Phillips 26, Maisie Williams 21 and Chelsea Robinson 18), credit must go to our strong defence led by captain Codie-Al Cleugh and goalkeeper Taylor Mathews.
 
"Most of the girls have played together or against each other in junior football in the Plymouth area so have found it an easy step when they reach the age of 16 to join the ladies team."
 
Plympton will be promoted to the South West League next season and Metters is confident that the team can acquit themselves well. "With this being our fifth season and enjoying two promotions in this time, the next step will be moving up to the South West League for a new challenge.
 
"Although we are losing 3 or 4 of the girls next season as they move away to university, AFC Plympton have a strong girls set up so girls are ready to step up and replace any departing players."
