Whilst several of the Arsenal team added to a large collection of F.A.Cup winners medals on Sunday, for one member of the squad it was a very special occasion.
Leah Williamson won her first senior medal and for the 17-year-old, who came on as a second half substitute, it was made even more special as she won it in her home town of Milton Keynes.
"My dream just came true so I am very, very happy," a smiling Leah said aftewards. "The main thing today is that the team won but to get on is just incredible."
Leah came close to scoring on a couple of occasions after coming on. "Kelly Smith said to me that she thought I had scored but it wasn't to be, maybe next year instead," she laughed.
After breaking through to the first team this season, Leah has started most of their matches so far but took an honest view of being on the bench for the Final. "At the age I am, any playing time I get is incredible," she said. "I wouldn't be human if I wasn't disappointed but as I said, the important thing is that the team won. Niamh [Fahey] came back in and had a fantastic game at centre half so credit to her."
However it did give Leah the chance to play at stadiummk for a second time and this time, she ended up with happier memories than the previous occasion. "I was here last year for the Youth Cup Final but it didn't end too well for me as I got injured, so I was just happy to get back out on the pitch," she admitted. "It's a great stadium and the people are amazing so it felt like home."
