Millwall Lionesses picked up the points they needed to give them the Southern Division Championship and promotion to the National Division by beating Crystal Palace 3-0.
With Palace fighting for every point to avoid regalation, it was not going to be a easy match for the Lionesses. In fact it took untill the 70th minute to break down the Palace defence, when Ann Marie Heatherson got on the end of a left wing cross to head past Sam Sharp in the Palace goal. Heatherson's and Millwall's second came shortly afterwards as she drove a shot into the bottom corner after collecting subsitute Angela Kiobel's cross.
Five minutes from the end, Heatherson got on the end of another Kiobel cross, this time heading the ball back across goal for Carly Eagles to slide home.
Congratulations are due to the players, manager Matt Beard and his coaching staff and previous boss Keith Boanas, who flew in from Estonia to be at the match, and put the squad together at the beginning of the season. Millwall will be playing top flight football once again next season, for the first time since their relegation back in 2001.
Millwall squad: Claire Lacey, Angela Kiobel, Ann-Marie Heatherson, Carly Eagles, Laura Jeffrey, Becky Tweed, Charlotte Gurr, Dionne Lennon, Stacy McConville, Joanne Woodgates, Sinead Boyer, Leah Jones, Leanne Champ, Megan McKeag, Sarah Jones, Stacy Whitehead, Victoria Boardman.
