Title rounds off great season for Bridlington

English County and other Leagues News - Title rounds off great season for Bridlington - 19 Apr 2019 - Women's Football News
It has been a great season for Bridlington Rovers, which has seen them crowned as Champions of the East Riding County Women's League and could yet end with them picking up another trophy.
Bridlington Rovers are jointly managed by Mark Womersley and Kev Drewery, with Mel Marsden as the club captain. Leading goalscorer is Amy Ward on 35 goals, followed by Josie Groves who has contributed a further 24.
"Our season started back in September when we travelled to Rotherham United of the North East Regional League in the First Qualifying Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup, which we won 3-1," Mark Womersley told Women's Soccer Scene. "We then went on to beat Accrington Ladies and Girls 4-1 in the Second Qualifying Round, once again they were a Regional Premier League team and we were one of only three teams in the Thirrd Qualifying Round draw from our current level.
We sadly lost away to FC United of Manchester in that round but the whole experience of the FA Cup was a massive highlight of our season."
Some standout results for the team along the way in the league were beating last season's Champions AFC Preston 7-0 at home and winning 4-0 against second placed North Ferriby United 4-0 in February.
"That result took us four points clear with three games in hand and effectively won the league," added Womersley. "One of our major results came just after Christmas away at Pinefleet, a very good team. We were 1-0 down at half time and came back to win 3-1 - that result made it 12 wins out of 12 and that really made us believe that we could go on and win the league.
"It's very difficult to single out individual players as it's very much a team effort, but obviously Amy Ward with the goals and Josie Groves has been brilliant all season. She has scored vital goals at crucial times and went ten goals in four games over the period that saw us secure the league title.
"I could name loads but Jade Newlove came in early on and, for a 16-year-old, has done extremely well and has played the majority of games but it is and always will be a really team effort, and we try not to rely on any one individual.
"Off the pitch our Secretary Nick Brunton is probably the best Secretary I know, and has things sorted before I even ask, and our Chairman Andy Potts is always supportive and does everything he can to help us."
Although the league title has been secured, there is still plenty for Bridlington to play for before the season ends. "We also have a cup final to look forward to as we look to defend our League Cup from last season. We take on East Yorkshire Carnegie in what will be a very tough game.
"We have applied for promotion to the North East Regional League as League Champions, so iwe should be taking on the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Harrogate Railway next season. We are under no illusions, it'll be a difficult challenge but it's a challenge we'll be up for."
