Middleton Athletic manager Barry Hurndall was delighted with his side's achievement of winning the Greater Manchester League title.
Middleton secured the Championship with a 5-1 victory over Chorltonians last week and Barry told Women's Soccer Scene: "This has been a long hard season with many difficult games but I would say that the turning point in this season came when we had our second game against FC United of Manchester."
After winning the first meeting 2-1, it was all to play for as a win for Middleton would put them six points clear whilst a victory for FC United meant it would all be even with FC having the advantage of more goals scored.
"It was an outstanding game with some excellent attacking play from both sides," added Barry. "For Middleton, the strike force of Jo O'Connell, Chelsea Cook and Belinda Carter made sure we had raced into a three goal lead. FC fought back and scored two quick goals in the last ten minutes and if it was not for some brilliant defending and excellent goalkeeping, they would have taken the points.
"This was just the tonic for the team to push on and see the league title in our hands and this has also contributed to Middleton getting through to two cup finals later this month."
Team captain Shauna Hurndall added: "There has been no individual to single out for praise, it has been a team effort and everybody has played their part in this epic journey."
