Brewers Ladies on the rise
 Women's Football Regional Premier West Midlands News - 13 May 2017
Regional Premier West Midlands News - Brewers Ladies on the rise - 13 May 2017 - Women's Football News
Similarly to their male counterparts, Burton Albion Ladies have embarked on a meteoric rise through the leagues during recent times.
After gaining promotion into the West Midlands Regional Premier Division, the club could have been excused for aiming for stability this season.
However, the ladies have secured another promotion, this time into the FA Women's Premier League; a target that was set years ago. A 4-1 victory away to Lye Town secured the league title in emphatic style and Adam Smallman's side now look ahead with great optimism and excitement.
Back in August, an opening day victory over Crusaders LFC set the ball rolling and the Brewers Ladies didn't look back. That win was soon followed up with further successes and pole position was soon obtained.
The only time the ladies fell from top spot was when they were involved in cup fixtures, leaving them with games in hand. Following the FA Cup run which ended at the Fourth Round Qualifying stage and a defeat away to West Bromwich Albion in the County Cup - a team two divisions above the Brewers Ladies - there was only the league and the League Cup to focus on.
Despite the squad being used to the maximum due to injuries to players, the form didn't slip. On route to the title, only one defeat was suffered, a slender 2-1 reverse away to Leamington Lions. A healthy goal difference was also racked up and the gap between Burton and their competitors continued to grow.
This week, Burton completed their fixtures in style with a 7-0 victory over runners-up Crusaders and this means they have won the title by a huge margin of sixteen points. To add to this, the double was achieved as they beat Coundon Court 2-1 in the Premier Division Cup Final with goals from Jemma Grimadell and Danielle Read.
With the league title already wrapped up and the League Cup secured, that is eight pieces of silverware in four years. Gaining three promotions in four seasons and only suffering six defeats along the way is some achievement, but Burton Albion Ladies are determined to continue their development.
Also boasting a talented reserve team and junior sides brimming with up and coming female footballers, the future looks bright. The club's motto of "together, anything is possible" is a potent one and the exploits thus far certainly highlight that.
"Everyone connected with this club is united in wanting to positively impact on female football in the region and we are making strides," says the club's Media Manager, Matty Roper. "Premier League football will soon be upon us and preparation is already well underway to ensure the correct things are put into place.
"I hope that you are all proud of our success so far and we appreciate the support that has been given to us. Burton Albion is a fantastic football club and we are delighted to be a part of it."
