Copsewood's outstanding season

Copsewood's outstanding season - 11 Jun 2014 - Women's Football News

 
The Midland Combination title race has practically been about just one side throughout the season - Copsewood Coventry. 
 
From the opening match of the season when they defeated Loughborough Students 3-0, Copsewood have dominated the league table. Despite being held to draws by Radcliffe Olympic and Leafield Athletic inside their first six games, Copsewood began to pull away with some high scoring wins, including an impressive 8-3 victory over Rotherham Utd and scoring seven times against Curzon Ashton.
 
However it was not just in the league that Copsewood were heavily involved as they reached the Final of the League Cup, where they narrowly missed out on the double when going down 4-2 to Loughborough Students. They also reached the Birmingham County Cup Final where they were beaten by Coventry City, and embarked on their best ever run in the F.A.Women's Cup, getting as far as the Fourth Round and were far from disgraced in their 4-1 defeat to WSL side Doncaster Rovers Belles - the first match that the side had lost all season.
 
The title was finally secured with six games still to play, with a 3-2 win away to Leicester City Ladies. At that stage, Copsewood were still unbeaten in the league but they weren't quite able to keep that run going until the end of the season, losing to runners-up Leicester City Women in their penultimate match of the campaign.
 
Manager Ryan Conneely has done an outstanding job in leading the club to its greatest ever season, assisted by Joe Conneely. Jodie McGuckin is club captain with Nicola Foskett, who is also the vice captain, as leading goalscorer having been on target 18 times. Sarah Rowles also got into double figures in the scoring charts while Abiyola Riley and Rebecca Knight were also regulars on the scoresheet. At the other end of the pitch, Copsewood conceded only 15 goals all season - a proud record for goalkeeper Nikki Duncan and her defence.
 
Copsewood's success is all the more impressive when considering they do not have a name which is linked to a Premier or Football League club, In fact, they are a family run club which is entirely self funded.
 
The club is now looking to assert itself and compete in the highest level of winter women's football when they play in the Premier League. Pre-season training begins on Wednesday 2nd July and will then take place every Monday and Wednesday at Copsewood Sports and Social Club from 7pm - 9pm.
 
Any players interested in joining the club should contact manager Ryan Conneely on (07957) 932774 or e-mail rcconneely@live.co.uk.
