Chelmsford land title
 Women's Football News 5 May 2008
Chelmsford City made sure of the Eastern Region League Division One South title following a superb 5-0 win against an Arlesey Town side who were still in the hunt for runners-up spot.
City enjoyed the better of the opening period, Lucy Garrett going closest with a well struck free kick which was well saved by the Arlesey keeper. The visitors settled and began to enjoy a spell of possession but could not find a way through as both sides cancelled each other out. With 35 minutes gone, City edged in front from the penalty spot after Laura Brown was felled in the box following a clumsy tackle from behind. Up stepped Michelle Davis to coolly stroke the ball home despite the efforts of the keeper.
The second half saw City, not content with sitting on their single goal lead, put early pressure on the Arlesey goal but it wasn't for a quarter of an hour before City eased any tension with a second goal. Good work on the right by Emma Ridings culminated in her squaring the ball across the face of goal where Jasmine Wheeler netted at the far post. Davis was influential in the centre of midfield all afternoon and showed her skill and determination by netting City's third with a well taken goal as the Clarets dazzled the sizeable crowd with intricate, one touch passing football which opened up a tiring Arlesey defence.
To their credit, Arlesey always looked dangerous on the break but City's back four looked strong throughout and when they did get a chance on goal, keeper Leanne Topper showed why she is rated as one of the top keepers with a confident display. Firstly she had to back track and claim an attempted lob under her own crossbar and then hold onto a fiercely struck shot.
City skipper Ridings rounded off an inspirational performance when her determination in closing down every ball saw her capitalise on an attempted clearance which rebounded kindly and she stroked the ball home for City's fourth.
Topper had to be at her best to get down and turn a low drive round her post while moments later at the other end, a moment of sheer brilliance by Davis saw her complete her hat-trick. Finding herself in the box, with her back to goal and surrounded by defenders, she cheekily backheeled the ball past the Town keeper and into the net.
The remainder of the match was played out with City putting on a show of skill in front of an already celebrating crowd, the final whistle sounding prompted scenes of celebration with champagne corks popping.
