Coundon Court keep up success story - 13 Jun 2016 - Women's Football News

Coundon Court can look forward to Premier Division football in the West Midlands League after winning the Division One South title. 
The team were crowned as Champions at the very first attempt following promotion from County League football and club Chairman Richard Seedhouse told Women's Soccer Scene of his delight at the club's success so far.
"This team started as our very first girls team, part of a Coundon Court FC/Birmingham County FA initiative to create an Under-10 and Under-11 girls team at our club," he said. "The teams went through the junior leagues each year and were followed by another team created each year through our Girls Summer Special, an opportunity for girls in Coventry and surrounding areas to come and play football and also trial for our teams.
"Three seasons ago, they made the leap into women's football and when I say leap, I mean bypassing the youth league to go straight into women's football at 16 years of age.
"This proved a great decision by the management of the team as they secured second place in the Birmingham County League Third Division and were promoted to the Second Division in their first season.
"Their second season was even more spectacular as they won the league and also clinched the Open League Cup, beating several Premier Division teams along the way and in the final.
"They applied to the FA in lieu of the initiative which is in place to manage and balance teams by ability and performance and were double promoted from the County League Second Division, directly into the Regional League (South).
"This season, only their third in competitive adult football, they have won the league and also finished runners-up in the League Cup, an absolutely incredible achievement especially when you consider that there is not a single player in the team who has not played for Coundon Court FC at junior level or ever played for any other adult team before.
"Manager Barry Morris and his women's team are now an inspiration to all our players, on that first training day as Under-10 players could they have ever dreamed of one day playing in the women's FA cup? Well they did!
"As Chairman and Football Development Officer, I feel a sense of incredible pride and unbelievable awe of their achievements to go from a newly formed team to the Regional League Premier Division in three years."
Led by the striking partnership of 18-year-old Lois Jefferies, with 46 goals, and 17-year-old Cerys Miller, who netted 20 times, the team were comfortably top scorers in the league as they won 16 of the 20 league games playing an exciting brand of football. Jefferies won the divisional golden boot with more than double the goals of her nearest rival, she was also top scorer in all three divisions. At the other end of the pitch, Kat Molloy (16) and Mya Graham (17) established themselves as outstanding defenders at this level.
Manager Barry Morris is assisted by Dave Bramley and Ben Isaac and Hannah Roxburgh is team captain.
"The club has a strong Junior section as evidenced by 23 of the 27 players used during the season having come from the Junior ranks and it was fitting that the goal that sealed promotion was scored by skipper Hannah Roxburgh who, at the age of 19, has made over 230 appearances for the club since her debut at under-10," said Morris.

"The club is excited at the challenge of playing in the Premier Division and feels well placed to consolidate its progress so far and with the average age of the squad of just 19, the future is bright."
Coundon Court will again be running its Girls Summer Special, which is open to all girls aged 8 to adult (current Year 2 and upwards). New players especially welcome to trial for any of their ten teams.
The sessions start on Saturday 18th June and run for five Saturdays, 11.30am-12.30pm for U9 to U16, 12.30pm to 1.45pm for U18 and Open Age. All sessions are at Coundon Court School, Northbrook Road CV6 2AJ. £1 per week per player, just turn up to play.
