Worthwhile wait for Wargrave - 3 Apr 2015 - Women's Football News

Wargrave Ladies were confirmed as Thames Valley Counties League Division Two South Champions last week when Barton Rovers were unable to win by the large margin they needed to overhaul them in their final game. 
"At the start of the season the goal was to obtain promotion to the First Division, with a healthy squad of 20 players including ten new players to complement the ten existing ones," manager John Davis told Women's Soccer Scene. "It was clear after six games that our competition for top spot would be between us and Barton Rovers.
"Having lost 4-3 away to Barton in mid-September, it seemed that we were already playing for second spot with both ourselves and Barton winning on a regular basis. This changed with the first fixture in January, with the return home fixture against Barton. All the players were really up for this fixture and we ran out winners by 2-1 with goals from Wendy Waterman and Alice Cartwright. This result gave the team the belief they could win the league title; however, all subsequent league games now became 'cup finals'.
"Four victories followed with a 15-1 success away to Ascot Reserves with Sian Blissett hitting six goals, a 5-0 win over Bracknell Reserves, with a couple from leading scorer Hannah Sheehan, a 4-0 away win at Sandhurst with a brace from Jodie Penny and Sian Blissett, and a 5-2 away victory at Bracknell Reserves, meaning that another win in our final match of the season against Holyport would secure the title.
"Alas, we were held 1-1 by a much improved Holyport side. Now we had an agonising two weeks wait to see if Barton could win both their remaining games by a goal difference of 19 goals. Although Barton won both matches, they only managed to win by a goal difference of seven, hence we came League Champions of the Thames Valley Women's League Division 2 South, winning 12, drawing one and losing one, scoring 83 goals in 14 games."
A truly remarkable season with three players sharing a total of 55 goals. Leading the scoring was Hannah Sheehan with 20, followed by midfielder Wendy Waterman with 18 and the youngest player in the team, Jodie Penny with 17 goals. The team really gelled both on the field and off the field.
Manager John Davis is in his fourth season with the club and the team is captained by Rosie Povey in central midfield. A special mention should be made for coach, Keith Doward, for his enthusiasm and compelling training drills.
