Hopes are high for an even larger Female Sevens League in late March as the Autumn/Winter schedule was brought to a close with Charlton Cherubs scooping the overall honours on Friday 26th February at Powerleague in Hainault as preparations get underway for the new Spring tournament.
The Essex County Football Association-delivered League's fourth and final event and it was the Cherubs who again took the winners' trophy for the second season running by topping the table and going four months unbeaten. Inaugural league winners, Women United, were awarded the overall runners-up medals whilst third placed team Chingford Chargers won the Fair Play Trophy for collecting the most points.
Sevens League football was set up after a schedule of ladies' beginners' sessions, which aimed to introduce local females to the game, became sufficiently popular to sustain its own small-sided competition which now meets every month. Whilst there were overall winners at this meeting it was business as usual in terms of a monthly contest as a mini-final took place between the top two teams on points. Leigh Celtic overcame the Cherubs in the final by one goal to nil whilst Havering United took the Fair Play prize.
Essex County FA Girls & Women's Football Development Officer for the County's five London Boroughs, Sharon Brownlie, continued to grow in enthusiasm due to the success of the tournaments so far, claiming: "Congratulations must go to all the teams that took part. With the Autumn/Winter League now completed we're turning our attentions towards the Spring League which begins on Friday 26th March and, with two new teams already waiting in the wings, we're hoping for an even bigger league come March."
Scores and tables can be viewed at www.essexfa.com. New teams joining the competition for the Spring League will be provided with a free Umbro playing kit whilst returning teams receive a £50 Umbro voucher to be spent on kit or equipment.
