Women's Soccer Scene
Lancing's successful first season
 Women's Football News 1 May 2015
Lancing are celebrating winning the Sussex County Women's League and their success has also been a personal triumph for manager Jason Downer. 
The team was only formed last summer and Jason told Women's Soccer Scene: "I approached Martin Gander, the Lancing chairman, about the possibility of creating a ladies team for the club in which he shared my views. My assistant manager this season was Jason Coldwell with my coach being Steve Downer.
"It's been a difficult first season with several changes to the squad from pre-season as we looked to get the balance of the team correct. Billie-Jo Cobb has been the squad captain this season and has led the way with 23 goals being the leading scorer above Sophie Tibbs, with 20, with one game to go.
"We have had to use five different keepers, only two of which were goalkeepers. Unfortunately our new keeper Hayley Dean, on only her second appearance, suffered severe damage to her knee ligaments.
"Nicole Webley and Jessica Mead have been 8/10 players at least every game in defence, with Nicole also playing a few games in midfield."
Lancing started the season well by winning their first three matches before going down to their only defeat against Crawley Wasps, but went on another winning run which kept them in the running for the league title.
"After postponements, the fixtures ended up given us a tough run of matches which ultimately decided our season, with three league games in a row against the top four," says Jason.
"The big result of beating Crawley Wasps 1-0 at home, who were at the time leading the table, followed by an impressive 3-1 victory at home to Lewes Development left only Rottingdean who could beat us to top spot.
"We travelled to Rottingdean with a couple of players missing as injuries started to hit the squad knowing a draw would win us the title. In a very entertaining game we managed to win 6-5 to win the league title.
"Sadly we weren't able to do the league and cup 'double' with a total of eleven injuries to the squad. We lost 1-0 at home to Lewes Development in a game where we had enough attempts to win comfortably but couldn't find the net."
