Woodley back in top division

Regional Premier Souhthern News - Woodley back in top division - 18 May 2018 - Women's Football News
Woodley United FC Ladies are celebrating a successful season that has seen them return to the Premier Division of Southern Region Women's Football League after a two-year absence by winning the league's Division One North title in their final league game at local neighbours Wargrave.
However, the season did not get off to the best of starts, losing heavily in the opening game of the season in the SSE FA Women's FA Cup at Oxford City followed by a league draw at Oxford City's Reserve team, The Nomads, the following week.
As the new signings began to settle in, fortunes improved with three successive wins including a SSE FA Women's FA Cup Second Round Qualifying home win against Alton as the team was reinstated into the competition following Oxford City's removal for playing an unregistered player. This saw the team into the Third Round Qualifying for the first time in its history, but the journey stopped at FAWPL members AFC Wimbledon in October.
This defeat was quickly put behind the team as they were to lose only once in the league and that was in November, at home to local promotion rivals Barton Rovers. This was particularly impressive as United mounted a challenge on four fronts, the league, League Cup, Berks & Berks FA Senior Cup and the league's Jubilee Cup, competed for by all Division One teams on a group stage format to determine the quarter finalists who would then play on a knockout basis.
Both the League Cup and County Cup saw the team knocked out at the semi final stage. Premier Division champions Chesham United were the League Cup victors while FAWPL Maidenhead United scored the decisive goal in second half stoppage time to progress to the Final.
The divisional title was won on the back of an outstanding defensive record, led by captain and centre back Ellen Surtees and outfield player turned goalkeeper Nicole Haines keeping five clean sheets in the final five league games of the season. In total, Nicole kept ten sheets in all games in what was her first season as a shot stopper.
Leading the goalscoring was the division's leading scorer Rosie Page-Smith, with 23 goals in 22 games and May Hamblin scoring 14 in 19 games. In addition to these two, eight other players scored throughout the season to provide good support.
The team is managed by Marc Surtees, whose contribution to the local community and ladies football has been recognised by Woodley Town Council in presenting him with a Woodley Citizens Award and their 2018 annual awards evening. Marc is supported by coach Nuno Antunes.
