Wednesday on way back
 Women's Football News 7 Jun 2007
 
Wednesday on way back - 7 Jun 2007 - Women's Football NewsAfter two seasons away, Sheffield Wednesday are on their way back to the Premier League after emerging triumphant in a three-way battle for the Northern Combination Championship.
 
The Owls enjoyed a superb season, their best in years as not only did they secure promotion back to the Northern Division but they also ended Doncaster Rovers Belles' grip on the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Cup.
 
The season started slowly with two consecutive draws and after the initial round of matches the Owls were rooted firmly in the bottom half of the table. Gradually, after some injuries had upset the team's balance, results started to come justifying manager Christine McCann's faith in the squad.
 
The County Cup run was possibly ther hardest ever having to defeat Sheffield United and then Rotherham United of the Midland Combination before winning 1-0 against a full strength Belles side in the final.
 
The Owls' interest in the FA Cup ended at the third round stage, but not without a fight as they succumbed 3-5 to Manchester City in extra time after winger Beth Gingell had dramatically equalised in time added on at the end of the normal 90 minutes.
 
The league results just got better and better and culminated in a crucial end of season programme that saw the Owls have to play both their promotion rivals in the final few weeks. Plans were looking ruined when the Owls lost 1-2 to Leeds City Vixens, but a few weeks later they defeated Middlesbrough 1-0 to go top of the table and they secured the title, making no mistakes with a hard fought 3-0 win over Blackpool Wren Rovers on the final day.
