After winning the Midland Combination title with three games to spare, Coventry City were able to take some time to celebrate their achievement.
A relaxing Easter weekend in Newquay has been made all the more pleasurable by the generosity of their headline sponsor. Peter Moore of Archer Bassett and Co, one of largest independent letting agencies in the Coventry and Warwickshire area, has paid for two tables at Coventry City men's team end of season awards night, allowing the league champions to take their first team as a reward for their hard work.
Club Chairman David Singleton expressed his delight, saying: "I'm thrilled that Peter has not only sponsored this year's Ladies Player of the Year award, he has also provided tables at the ball for the first team. They were over the moon with the news and it just adds to the dream season that we're having.
"It will signal the start of a new era for the football club, one with many eyes upon us. Since clinching the title I have had calls from all over the country with messages of congratulations. Peter has been a staunch supporter of the Ladies and his three year sponsorship deal has been crowned with a fabulous trophy which he will present to Natasha Lynch at The Ricoh on May 2nd."
The club will get their hands on the trophy during half time of the Watford game as the men's season comes to a close. It will come as some relief to captain Lynch as she accepts the trophy after cruelly missing out so narrowly over the previous three seasons. Consecutive runners-up spots have seen Coventry miss out to Rotherham United, Leicester City and Derby County, however this season there was to be no such disappointment as the 3-0 win at Sporting Club Albion last week sealed top spot.
Last season Helen Dermody took the Player of the Year plaudits and accepted the honour at her male counterparts' awards evening. Dermody's 20 goals in 28 matches saw her stand head and shoulders above her team mates, this year though is far from clear cut. Robyn James has had a stellar debut season for City, highlighted by her first half hat-trick against Copsewood last week. Dermody, Emily Hanson and Jade Formaston have all contributed vital goals and assists to get Coventry over the final hurdle.
Leanne McKenna has been a revelation in midfield, giving City the bite they have missed since the departure of Katy Moran, whilst Centre of Excellence graduate Nikki Miles has proved a tremendous foil, showing great form during her first full season of senior football. Lynch, Gemma Clarke and fullbacks Nat Wilcox and Jade Whitfield have helped marshal the division's stingiest defence. Netty Manca and Sarah Morgan also played pivotal roles between the posts, helping Coventry remain the only unbeaten side in the top three tiers of English football.
Whoever scoops the Archer Bassett and Co. Player of the Year award will have certainly earned the honour in what has been Coventry's most memorable season in quite some time. The girls will find out in style on May 3rd thanks to Moore, Managing Director and founder of Archer Bassett. Before then City will be hoping to continue their astounding run as they travel for their final two games, away to Leafield Athletic and TNS Ladies.
