Writtle joy after late, late strike
 Women's Football News 7 Apr 2014
A goal eleven minutes into stoppage time from Emma Ridings sealed a dramatic Essex County Women's Trophy success for Writtle. 
Courtney Clarke's first half strike had given Writtle a half time lead, but quick-fire strikes from Liz Newcomb and Ellie Turner-Powell had edged Southendian ahead. Caroline Brown hauled Writtle back on terms prior to Riding's dramatic late winner.
"Was it really eleven minutes?" exclaimed Writtle boss Sharon Brownlie after the game. "I expected them [Southendian] to come back a bit stronger in the second half as I knew one of their best players was on the bench, but we didn't quite play our usual football today."
Perhaps not at their pomp, Writtle certainly kept going and Sharon was delighted with Ridings' late intervention, continuing: "We really kept going and you could see how pleased we were to grab the goal. It's a fantastic end to the season - it wouldn't have been possible without the excellent support from the whole Writtle club though. It's a bit of a trek up here today and they've come out to support us."
Writtle, from Division Two of the Essex County Women's League, started the game on the front foot and chances had already gone the way of Ridings and Mollie DeBell before the lead arrived on 26 minutes as Clarke found space just inside the area before placing a shot in the bottom corner.
The second half turnaround made for a great spectacle as Newcomb's half volley levelled the arrears on 54 minutes while Turner-Powell's full volley just three minutes later put the Essex County Women's League Premier Division side ahead.
The lead lasted eight minutes as Brown's speculative 20-yard effort caught out Southendian goalkeeper Lydia Tindell to make it 2-2 before a half littered with goals and injury stoppages was settled deep into added time. A right flank cross eluded the Southendian defence and Ridings was on hand at the back post to seal the win.
Southendian Ladies: Lydia Tindell, Sophie Ellis, Stevie Loraine, Nikhol Chapman, Paige White, Rhiane Cunningham, Liz Newcomb, Lucy Dagarn, Amanda Nicholl, Tracy Rodd, Emma Newcomb. Subs: Georgia Holdaway, Sarah Petty, Shannon Mackie, Ellie Turner-Powell, Gabi Bailey.

Writtle: Rhianna Farr, Caroline Brown, Kayleigh Franklin, Georgia Wheale, Kim Jeffrey, Abigail Fry, Mollie DeBell, Kayleigh Peters, Emma Ridings, Courtney Clarke, Leanne Stubbings. Subs: Laura Kendle, Amy Simmons, Lynette Jones.
