Urmston Meadowside are celebrating landing the Greater Manchester League Division One title after picking up the point they needed against nearest rivals Didsbury.
With two games left to play, Urmston still sport an unbeaten record and their young squad are also through to the semi finals of the Challenge Cup and have a chance to progress in the Division One League Cup.
The team is managed and coached by Jeff Lawson, assisted by Steve Hanley-Watts and Liam Morrisey is Coach. Harriet Lawson wears the captain's armband, with Tyla Hanley-Watts as vice captain, whilst Kira Saycell is leading goalscorer with 19 goals to her name and ebecca Foster has been awarded the most MOTM's this season.
"Our most important result was against Didsbury, we needed a point to win the league with a few games still to play," manager Jeff Lawson told Women's Soccer Scene. "We were 2-0 down at half time, playing against a competitive Didsbury team.
"We spoke at length at half time about playing to our strengths which is our passing and moving forward, playing the triangles and releasing out wide players which have lots of speed. We took control of the game and our left winger was too quick and was brought down for a penalty, from which Rebecca Foster scored. Shannon Maloney then scored a great 20 yard volley over the goalkeeper's head into the far corner of the net.
"We should have gone on to win the game but we were more than pleased with the great comeback and the fact we had secured the league with a great second half performance."
The team's success has been even sweeter for the fact that, although youthful in senior football terms, they have been together for a long time. "We still have four of our original girls that went through our 3 Lions initiative, back when they were eight years old," added Lawson. "These four are Harriet Lawson, Tyla Hanley-Watts, Chloe Wood and Lucy McCabe.
"Thirteen of the girls are between 17 and 18 and have been with Meds for many years. We have seven older girls, some of which came back to the club after an older team folded. The mixture of the younger girls and the slightly older ones has really worked well.
"If I had to mention a couple of players that make a difference, I'd say Vicky Grayson for her superb defending at left back. She makes it look so easy and is comfortable using both feet. Also, Rebecca Foster and Rachel Killeen for their midfield drive and enthusiasm. They both drive the team forward and set the team going. Kira Saycell is just a fantastic and natural goalscorer. She plays off the shoulders of the centre halves and creates the one-on-ones and 95% of the time she scores.
"Personally, it's been a great season for me as after 12 years of coaching, I've finally got both my daughters playing in the same team for the first time. Harriet Lawson plays centre half and is 18 and captain. Kate Lawson plays where she is needed but prefers to play wide right.
"All the teams we've played have been really nice to us and have been a credit to ladies football."
