Morecambe overcome obstacles for success

English County and other Leagues News - Morecambe overcome obstacles for success - 27 May 2017 - Women's Football News
Morecambe Res emerged victorious in the Lancashire County Women's League Division One title race this season and did so in an eventful season which included a management change and dealing with selection difficulties.
Morecambe started off the season in excellent form, starting up with a 2-1 win against Penwortham Town and going on to record victories in all of their opening seven matches of the campaign.
The title was eventually won with two matches remaining, with an unbeaten record at the time, when they defeated North Lancs & District 5-3, although Morecambe were narrowly beaten in their penultimate match.
"Mel Martin started off as manager but due to work commitments, she had to step down," explained secretary Sophie Fish, "and in her place were joint managers Nicky Clark and Ryan Greenwood. All have been equal in the success of the league with the guidance from Nick Barrett, the first team manager.
"The ladies' biggest win was away at Burnley Girls & Ladies Res, winning 8-1 with Layla Garrett scoring six goals!
"We have been stung in the league with a rule only allowing two players who have played 5+ games for the firsts to play for the reserves. This is totally fine, as we aren't there to play first team players, however the girls who step up to help the first team when short, or deserve to step up and develop, get stuck as then only two of those can play. It's punishing them for helping out their first team.
"In the end we had girls refusing to play for the first team, therefore they were struggling to field a side and some girls dropping out from playing because they weren't allowed to play - even after asking for special dispensation. It is the worst rule ever, preventing development and players - what's the point in having a reserve side? Anyway, despite this we somehow managed to remain unbeaten in all league games until winning the league. Hooray!
"Top goalscorer this season is Layla Garrett, the player that has probably progressed the most this season, even scoring seven goals in two games!"
