Southampton on way back - 29 May 2016 - Women's Football News

 
Southampton Women are looking to a brighter future after starting their move back up the women's football pyramid with a title success. 
 
A club which has won the FA Women's Cup eight times in their history, in recent seasons Southampton Women's Football Club had been fighting to remain in the Southern Region League due to struggling to muster 11 players each week, but since the arrival of Fran Alonso (First Team Technical Support Coach at Southampton FC) in December 2014 and his coaching team, the club has transformed.
 
Even though they did not play a league fixture until October, Southampton served notice early on that they were going to be a force with a good FA Cup run which only ended when beaten on penalties by London Corinthians. When their league campaign eventually began, Southampton won their first six games including a vital 2-0 success over Chesham Utd, who were the runaway leaders at that time.
 
Chesham did gain revenge in their return meeting but Southampton kept winning their games in hand and clinched the title with a 4-2 victory over Wycombe Wanderers, eventually finishing clear by a margin of five points.
 
It was nearly a double success for Alonso's side as they reached the League Cup Final but despite having much of the game against Oxford City, they were beaten 1-0 by a late penalty goal.
 
The team is captained by experienced midfielder Kirsty Bell, who has had a fine career in the women's game and is still playing well for her side. Talented winger Laura Gilbank was selected as the player of the season and leading scorer is Sheree Bell-Jack with 29 goals to her name.
 
SWFC have recently received sponsorship from Startland and have agreed a deal with Southampton Solent University to record all home matches as well as producing a movie about the club and its history.
