Watford's Wembley triumph
 Women's Football News 16 Jul 2007
Watford's Wembley triumph - 16 Jul 2007 - Women's Football NewsWatford became the first ever winners of the FA Umbro Fives on the day that women's football came to the new Wembley Stadium for the first time.
Eight women's teams competed at the home of football after qualifying through their regional finals and they took their place among 24 men's sides who took part in the inaugural tournament.
The teams took the pitch in a special ceremony, which included the national anthem, before the matches began and Dionne Lennon earned herself the distinction of becoming the first woman footballer to score at the new Wembley when giving Docklands Ladies the lead against North East opponents, How Do You Eat Yours.
After the group matches were finished, the competition split into two parts and in the Trophy section - for the teams which did not finish in the top two of their group - the semi finals saw Langford beat How Do You Eat Yours 1-0 and MFC Ladies win 3-1 against Penzance.
In the Final, Sammy Conroy put MFC Ladies in front but Langford quickly equalised when Sherrie Oliver netted from the penalty spot and the Hertfordshire side claimed a 2-1 victory as Dawn Mallett fired home a free kick.
The main competition saw favourites Watford defeat Peterborough 2-0 and Docklands Ladies come from behind to beat Curzon Ashton 2-1 to set up a Final between the two undefeated sides.
Watford, whose side contained the unusual sight of Ellen Maggs playing in goal, started the Final strongly with Miranda Hall putting them in front with just one minute on the clock and a sublime left foot finish from Helen Lander doubled their advantage. Pam McRoberts gave Docklands hope when she pulled one back with an angled shot but Lander was to have the final say and her second goal wrapped up a 3-1 victory for the Premier League side.
The day was rounded off with the two sides climbing the 100-plus stairs to the Royal Box where England stars Katie Chapman and Mary Phillip presented the trophy and medals, with Watford's Kat McKenna being named as Player of the Tournament.
