Wrens reach Premier League goal

Wrens reach Premier League goal - 22 May 2015 - Women's Football News

Blackpool Wren Rovers have reached the Premier League for the first time in their history, after a number of near misses, following their ultimate triumph in a closely fought title race in the North West League. 
Rovers had narrowly missed out to Morecambe last season and needed to chase for much of this campaign, after Blackburn Community had made a fast start to set the early pace and Crewe Alexandra took over the lead until the latter stages. Rovers always possessed games in hand and a strong finish saw them take top spot by a margin of seven points.
"It's been a hard season, because I think everyone expected us to win it," manager Sam Wilcock told Women's Soccer Scene. "We started well but one turning point was going to play away to Crewe, who had beaten us twice last season, with a depleted team through injuries and my sister Caroline representing England in the Deaf Women's Futsal Championships. We all dug in and won a very important victory. 
"Then, when we played Blackburn Community at home and played our best game to win 6-1, we knew we could go on and win the league."
Rovers' success has been a real team effort but for Sam, who has been a big part of the club for many years, it was a special moment as well for other long servants. "We have joint managers of myself and Audra Bates," she explained. "Our captain is Nikki Berko but as she was injured for the last three games, vice captain Carly Loughran took over. Nikki Berko is also our top goalscorer with 51 goals to her name.
"Our reserve team players have been a great support this season, playing for us whenever needed, especially Lauren Turner, Louise Allan and Natalie Jackson who all played an important part in the team at the end of the season."
Rovers also had an opportunity to win the League and Cup double and faced local rivals Blackpool in the League Cup Final, but sadly this was to bring an unfortunate ending. "One of our players sadly broke her leg, it wasn't a nice end to the season and the match was abandoned," said Sam. "The girls were very shaken up by this and the player, Louise Allan, has had an operation so we've all been rallying round to support her.
"Going back to management, both myself and Audra are stepping down from the role as we both have family commitments. We have worked together for five enjoyable years and I have been part of the management at Wrens for twelve years."
Blackpool Wren Rovers are now looking for a new manager/coach to lead them into the Premier League next season. If you are interested in the vacancy, please contact Sam on samwilcock@fsmail.net and the club will contact you to discuss the position.
