English County and other Leagues News - Bungay Town at the double - 9 Jun 2018 - Women's Football News
Bungay Town manager Graham Purling paid tribute to his side after they were crowned as Norfolk County Women's League Champions.
Bungay clinched the title on goal difference following a close battle with Sprowston Ladies and Thrope Utd which went all the way to the final match of the season.
"It's been a long a hard season for us due to the severe winter weather disruption and being successful in cups," Purling told Women's Soccer Scene.
"The season started with a big win for us in the SSE Women's FA Cup at Colchester Town but then disappointment with losing our first league game at Wymondham Town. However from then on, we went on an winning run which continued on until April, during with which we defeated title rivals Thorpe United and Sprowston, and only losing 3-2 in the FA Cup to a strong Harlow Town side.
"We took on a new coach, Daniel Burlingham, in January to continue our team building off the pitch which has certainly helped.
"Throughout the season we suffered with serious long term injuries, our new striker Milly Morgan to an ACL in her knee in the first game, Becky Hills had knee issues and after five months out, was finally diagnosed as a broken knee cap. Two further new signings in January quickly fell to other serious ACL injuries and those, together with other injuries made the last games of the season ever more difficult and the players need praise for the way they dug in to achieve their title.
"We thought we had blown our chances as we only drew our final game - then allowing Sprowston to overtake us - but in their final game they too could only draw against Wymondham, meaning we took the title on goal difference, which was to be seen as justice as we scored 50% more goals than any other team and conceded less."
The previous weekend had seen Bungay win the League Cup for the second successive season with a 1-0 victory over FC Sprowston in the Final, making it a double winning season overall.
"We had four players in the top six league scorers charts, Emily Leach leading with 37 goals followed by Sam Walker with 30, Selina Rowland (24) and Nicky Hazell (20)," added Purling.
"But we feel the team is built on a solid defensive line lead by captain Kelly Collins, which has been superb all season."
