Coundon court success in second season
 Women's Football News 26 Apr 2015
Coundon Court have marked their second season in senior women's football by landing the Birmingham County Women's League Division One title and promotion to the top division. 
The side is managed by Barry Morris, supported by Dave Bramley and Ben Isaac.  After good success at junior level over eight years, culminating in winning the CWGFL Under-16 Premier league title two years ago, Barry took the decision to take the majority of the squad straight to ladies football. This means that the squad is a very young one with an average age still only just over 18 and half - all the experience coming from the only player over 21, Alison Cropper! 
"Our commitment to youth is unquestioned with 18 of the 21 players having come through the club's junior ranks and the Youth and Ladies teams train together every week," Barry told Women's Soccer Scene. "The management being determined to give every opportunity to the club's junior players to play open age football.
"Having finished second and gained promotion in our first taste of Open Age football, we went one better this year by pipping last year's champions Stourbridge to the title in a thrilling finish.  Both teams were battling it out at the top of the table from the opening game of the season and after losing to a last minute goal against Stourbridge in the home fixture in March, we knew only a win would do when the two sides met in the last and title-deciding game of the season. 
"Skipper Hannah Roxburgh (18), who was playing her 200th game for her only club, typified the determination within the squad and we gave an outstanding performance to thoroughly deserve a 2-0 win. Lois Jeffries (17) scored both goals taking her tally to 31 in 16 games. The front three, including Leigh Peers (18) and Cerys Miller (16) have terrorised defences this season, scoring 69 goals.      
"It has been a true squad effort though, conceding just eight goals in the league despite a number of injuries affecting our back line.  There were many highlights during the season, perhaps the  best being a 15-minute spell at Black Country Belles where our title challenge had slipped the previous season. Having gone behind early in the game, we responded brilliantly with a four-goal blast playing the fast, attacking football we encourage throughout the club.  
"We also have a Cup Final to look forward to, having knocked out two Premier Division sides along the way, our best performance of the season coming in the quarter finals of the competition where we ran out 4-0 winners at Rugby Town, a 25-yard free kick by Tash Miles proving a real highlight."
Coundon Court was founded in 2002 and is an FA Charter Standard Community Club, having won many awards from the Birmingham County and even a Club of the Year title from the FA in 2008. The club currently boasts 9 boys teams, 8 girls teams and 3 disability teams and believe their girls section, with over 115 registered players, to be the biggest in the Birmingham County area.
