Union triumph in close title battle

English County and other Leagues News - Union triumph in close title battle - 19 Apr 2019 - Women's Football News
The Gloucestershire County Women's League title race has been one of the closest fought this season and it was Bristol Ladies Union who emerged as winners following a four-way battle which lasted virtually the whole campaign.
Bristol Ladies Union (also known as BLUFC) was formed in June 2008, incorporating Shirehampton Colts Under-11, Rockleaze Rangers Under-11 and University of Bristol ladies team, which became the first team. Competing in the South West Women's League Premier Division, they finished mid-table most years but were runners-up to Larkhall Athletic in 2012-13.
BLUFC first team also competed in the final of the GFA Women's Trophy in both 2014 and 2015, losing both games to Forest Green Rovers.
The original first team disbanded at the end of the 2015-16 season due to lack of players. The Development Squad then became the first team, but competed in the Gloucestershire County Women's Football League. After improving season by season, they landed the title with a game to spare this time around and finished five points clear of second placed Longwell Green Ladies.
Not many women's football teams can claim to have a manager who has scored in a Wembley cup final, but Bristol Ladies Union can do so! Steve Price scored for Almondsbury Greenway in the FA Vase Final against Billiercay Town, who were the winners on the day. His daughters Hannah, Madison and Sophie all play for the team.
"It has been a great season winning the Gloucestershire Women's County League, considering we have a very young side all around 18 years old and playing against some really strong sides," he told Women's Soccer Scene. "We are managing every game with only 13 players each week. We are top scorers in the league and have the best defensive record.
"The girls have created history for our club, becoming the first senior side to win a league title and hopefully more to follow - we need to do our best in the the cup final on 28th April
"We just got through to the final of the Gordon Perrett Memorial Cup, in the First Round we were three down at half time to Abbeymead Rovers but stormed back to win 4-3. In our four rounds of the cup, we have scored 36 goals and only let in four.
"It's been a great season, scoring a record 67 goals and with Hannah Price as top scorer in the league with 28. Each player gave 100% in every game and I am very proud of them all."
