Wetherby triumph in close title battle

Wetherby triumph in close title battle - 20 May 2015 - Women's Football News

 
Wetherby Athletic came from behind to lift the North East League Southern Division title following a late run and tense ending to the season. 
 
The team has slowly improved over the past few years, with recent highlights including finishing runners-up in the league last season and getting to the West Riding County Cup quarter finals, beaten by Leeds United Ladies.
 
For the 2014-15 season, strengthened by a few new players and improved training, the first team started with the aim to challenge the league title once more. Despite a good start, a few disappointing early results (a defeat to the eventual runners-up and a draw) put Wetherby on the back foot, always chasing the two leading teams - Westella & Willerby and Farsley AFC.
 
They managed to keep positive however and from these early results, maintained an unbeaten record to the end of the season. Putting pressure on the top two teams, Wetherby came into their last two games needing only two points to secure the title. This led to a dramatic end of the season, with a last minute penalty securing a point against Westella, and a 2-2 draw against runners-up Farsley in the last game. Wetherby therefore finished the season with their highest ever points and goals total.
 
The first team also had their most successful season in their respective cups, reaching the Second Round of the FA Women's Cup, the League Cup quarter finals and the last eight of the County Cup - losing to the eventual winners, Bradford City.
 
The team and club would like to thank manager Mike Robinson for all his support this season, as he retires and the role is taken on by coach, Steven Carmody. The team is captained by Helen Hartley and Debra Slater was top scorer with 28 goals in just 18 appearances.
 
Players who have influenced the team this season include Gemma Hall, who came from Leeds United Foundation at only 16 years old, and soon secured a spot in the first team at right back. Gemma has had a solid season, and gained the respect of all her team mates and coaches, playing well and battling strongly against teams and players with more experience.
 
Despite interest shown from a number of higher level clubs, including Bradford City and Huddersfield Town, Debra Slater showed loyalty to the 'Orange Army' this season and once again secured not only team top goalscorer, but league top goalscorer plaudits as well. She is a key part of the team, with a determined attitude, and has been vital to the performances this season.
 
"Wetherby Athletic Ladies FC are an inclusive football club based North of Leeds, with two ladies open age teams," says secretary Jemma Carmody. "The ladies section formed six years ago and due to increased participation and interest in the area, they started a Reserves team last year.
 
"We are looking for players for both teams for next season, and if anyone would like to get in touch my details and the website information are: jemstar09@icloud.com or (07976) 218410.
 
"Training will start again in June 2015, and we are looking for new players in any position, as well as players/people who are interested in coaching and management in the future. The club also has a great foundation in junior girls football, and would be interested in players of any age and ability wanting to get involved."
