Solihull win league undefeated

Regional Premier West Midlands News - Solihull win league undefeated - 31 May 2019 - Women's Football News
Solihull United have lifted the Dvision One South title in the West Midlands League after emerging from a tough title battle with a near perfect record.
Solihull are managed by Jamie Carter, with Saddiqa Shan as their captain. Hayley Wilfred was the team's top goalscorer but it was the entire squad whose excellent performances, week in week out, which resulted in their outstanding season.
Off the pitch, important contributions have been made by Piers Webster and Chris Cooper (Coaching Staff), Matt Finney and Jack Cook (Physios) and Emma Alexander and Chelsea Smith (Treasurer and Secretary).
"Our two biggest rivals in contention for the title were Kidderminster Harriers and Sedgley & Gornal United, both of whom proved to be tough opposition," Emma Alexander told Women's Soccer Scene. "The away fixtures for these teams happened one after the other and all three teams knew that the outcome of these games would be imperative for becoming the champions of the league.
"The first of our two most crucial games took place against Sedgley & Gornal. The final result was 4-1 to United with goals from Cat Harris, Saddiqa Shan, Rebecca Wood and Hayley Wilfred. In this fixture we got off to the perfect start as Cat scored a goal in under one minute (the clock showed 25 seconds). Our second goal by Hayley was one of our best team goals throughout the season. Woody (Rebecca) scored from long distance with an extremely impressive setpiece which fell just inside the Gornal half. Finally captain Saddiqa sealed the victory with a fourth. This game was the eighth of the season and all the team agreed that it was our best performance so far in our season and the final result was huge for the lades.
"Only a week later, we ended up facing Kidderminster Harriers hoping to carry on the momentum of the previous week. The ladies knew that out of all the fixtures this season, this one was the most important. Kidderminster always have a strong attendance of fans who back their team with great passion, so the ladies had to ensure they remained focused and did not get overwhelmed by the importance of the game. Kidderminster had an impressive run in the FA Cup, so both teams were in excellent form going into this game - they, like us at this point, were the only team in the league undefeated so neither side wanted to lose the bragging rights.
"The final result for this fixture was 4-2, Cat Harris scoring twice with Hayley Wilfred and Scarlett Fielding. The game as a whole was an excellent showcase for women's football, with end to end football and both sides showing a determination to secure the three points. United took the lead twice but Kidderminster valiantly brought it back each time. It was not until late into the second half that United managed to pull away and secure the victory. The defence remained solid preventing Kidderminster from drawing level again.
"The atmosphere as the game finished was amazing and every single person on the United side knew that this was an extremely important moment in our campaign for the title and the celebrations afterwards was incredible.
"Overall our season has been outstanding, our two strikers had a fruitful season with an impressive 75 goals between them, Hayley (42) and Cat (33). The majority of the squad had success in front of goal with an amazing tally of 108 goals scored and only 17 conceded, having an extremely solid defence and an amazing goalkeeper allowed us to keep the goals scored against us down. Even as the season drew closed and injury was rife amongst the squad, meaning we had the bare eleven for most weeks, it did not stop the ladies showing an excellent team mentality and cross the finish line undefeated."
