Bar Hill Women FC is a newly formed club, only in their third season since formation.
Having been promoted from their County League in their first year, the players wanted to push on further and having come close last season, were all determined to become Champions of the Eastern Region League Division One North this year.
Vicky Neal is the club's player manager and her hard work and determination, both on and off the pitch, inspires others to play to their maximum potential.
Bar Hill have a lot of support for a small village team and their home record for the season reflects this, being undefeated at home in the league. A standout game for the team was the very first game of the season, which turned out to be a vital three points against AFC Sudbury. The players had worked hard throughout pre-season training and every one of them performed brilliantly in that first game, with new signing Katie Sims, only 16 years old, scoring a cracking opening goal.
Bury Town were looking strong contenders for the league early in the season, however a brilliant performance away from home, beating them 1-0 with Katie Sims once again the goalscorer,:kept Bar Hill in the mix before Christmas.
With an injury to top goalscorer Anna Jephson, someone in the team had to step forward and be counted. "That player was Natalie Shenton, "said player manager Vicky Neal. "A two footed, skilful player, she proved to be a handful for our opponents, scoring some very important goals for the team to put us in the driving seat to win the league.
"The game Bar Hill needed to win in order to win the title saw Shenton at her best, creating chances for others then finally, when we gained a free kick outside the box, she stepped up and placed it in the top corner to win us the game.
"Our captain Gemma Clare performed to a consistently high standard over the season a centre back, but as well as her own game, Clare brings out the best in the players around her. Ipswich Wanderers gave us four competitive games this season and the two games we lost away to them were games that Clare was unable to make due to work."
Bar Hill are thrilled to have achieved so much in such a small amount of time and would like to thank Paul and Liz Neal for their continued hard work they do behind the scenes for all the players.
"Similarly, our sponsor Kevin Julian (Heating and Plumbing) was an active supporter, offering his assistance in any way he could, so thank you to him," added Vicky.
