Long Eaton's memorable season

Long Eaton's memorable season - 20 May 2016 - Women's Football News

Long Eaton United Ladies have been crowned East Midlands League Premier Division Champions and have secured promotion to the FA Women's Premier League for the first time in their history. 
The Blues have become the first team ever to win the league and gain promotion from the regional league unbeaten. The performances and consistency the Blues have found this year has been a testament to the hard work that the girls have put in and they fully deserve to be League Champions.
It has not always been an easy ride for the Blues, going down 2-0 to both title rivals Mansfield Town and Bedworth, the latter in the first six minutes of the game before an excellent performance saw the Blues go into half time 3-2 up and eventually winning the game 6-2.
It wasn't just league football that produced excellent performances either. This season the Blues made FA Cup history by reaching the Second Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup before falling short to Sporting Club Albion (who fell only to Manchester City in later rounds). The Blues beat Rotherham, Leicester City Ladies and Wolves from the Premier League on their way to the Second Round. Wolves in particular, was a stand out performance, taking the lead twice before conceding an equaliser with a minute to go. With extra time looming, an inspired substitution saw the Blues get their deserved winning goal which also saw goalscorer Precious Hamilton receive the SSE Women's FA Cup Player of the First Round award.
More success post-New Year came with both the League Cup and County Cup in full flow. The Blues reached the Final of the Derbyshire FA County Cup, eventually losing to Derby County.
One game certainly didn't define the Blues season, especially when finding out they had been crowned League Champions the same day.
The Blues have also reached the League Cup Final where they will face local rivals Mansfield Town at Arnold Town FC on 22nd May. League scores saw a 3-3 draw at Grange Park, before the Blues took all three points by winning 2-1 at their ground so it will be all to play for on the day, with all support appreciated!
The solid foundation was built largely by the coming togetherness of both the squad and the management team. However, a huge part of our success this year has largely been down to the commitment and support of the Chairman, Jim Farley, and the internal support shown by everyone involved at the club.
The team's success has been guided by Head Coach Charlotte Healy and assistant Alex Sammut, with Will Brown as Assistant Coach. Precious Hamilton has scored no less than 56 goals with other significant contributions from Cara Newton (34) and Shell Kilmartin (22).
Finally, a special thank you should be given to the club's ever growing number of supporters, who have been there both at home and away matches and have equally deserved the success that they have managed to achieve this season.
