Gloucester hold nerve to secure title - 10 Apr 2015 - Women's Football News

 
Gloucester City came through a nervy last game of the season to beat Bristol Ladies Union 3-2 and clinch the South West League Premier Division title. 
 
The Tigresses require one point from the game in order to be confirmed as Champions but they trailed at the break to a goal from Cheryl Baber.
 
In the second half, Gloucester pushed forward in search of the all-important goal but came up against a stubborn Union back four which defended well with goalkeeper Katherine Howells impressive between the posts.
 
Indeed Gloucester were grateful to their own keeper Emma Hart, who clawed away a fiercely struck Polly Wardle shot which looked destined for the top corner.
 
Then came a dramatic final eight minutes which eventually turned the game around. First of all, City grabbed the equaliser they craved when Helen Wood drove a free kick towards goal and Ashleigh Watson - playing her last game for the club before taking up a USA scholarship - nodded home to level the scores.
 
Parity lasted just two minutes though as the City defence could not clear a free kick from Sophie Morgan and Katy-May O'Hara was on hand to drill the ball into the far corner of the net and restore Union's lead.
 
Gloucester then went straight back on the attack and got back on terms once more, the ball breaking to Jodie Hennessey on the edge of the area where she gave Howells no chance with a firm low drive.
 
With two minutes left to play, Wood's through ball was chased down by Hennessey who held off a challenge from Hannah Garrett-Kirk before deftly lobbing the ball over Howells to finally erase any more doubts for her side.
 
Defeat was very rough on Union on the night but Gloucester safely negotiated the last few minutes before they could finally celebrate the Championship and promotion to the FA Women's Premier League.
