Heather blossom after title success
 Women's Football News 19 Aug 2008
Heather blossom after title success - 19 Aug 2008 - Women's Football NewsEast Midlands League Southern Division newcomers Heather Ladies capped a marvellous 2007-08 season by being crowned Leicestershire County League Champions. 
Having not lost a game since January 6th, the team grew stronger and stronger as the second half of the season went on. Two new mid-season signings paved the way for success and with it proved to be the final pieces of the jigsaw which helped to drive the rest of the team onwards and upwards in last season's successful league campaign.
Heather manager Mark Jones said: "It was going to be a hard task to win the County League, but the team management were very confident in the ability of all of the players and confidence in the team was at an all time high. We carved out result after result and dropped just two points against Loughborough University, whilst table toppers Harborough Town were dropping points almost every week."
The final game of the season saw them playing Harborough Town (who were now Cup winners as well) at Heather. Harborough only needed a draw to secure the League title, whereas they had to clinch victory to steal the Championship from under the noses of their Leicestershire opponents, Jody Scott (one of the club's new signings) scored the opening goal after 15 minutes and Heather had their tails up; a poor clearance by the Harborough goalkeeper saw Lou Parry scored the second goal from almost 40 yards out.
Heather dominated for the rest of the game and despite Harborough scoring a late penalty, the final whistle blow and amid the celebrations, Heather became the Leicestershire County League Champions and with it sealed promotion to the East Midlands League.
As the team prepares for the new season under the guidance of Mark Jones, their preparations for their League debut are going according to plan having been victorious in their first three pre-season friendlies. The team undertake two more friendlies before their first competitive fixture of the season, a home tie in the F.A.Women's Cup Preliminary Round against Oadby & Wigston on 7th September, with the reward for the eventual winners being another home tie in the First Qualifying Round against Gedling Town.
Heather start their East Midlands League programme the following Sunday (14th) away to Nuneaton Borough and the management are confident that the squad will continue to grow and prosper throughout their campaign. The club has at least four promising budding Under-18 players who are already knocking on the door of the first team and, as Heather prepare to make their debut at Regional League level, women's football at the Leicestershire club continues to flourish and with the help of, and using the facilities, of their male football counterparts who play at Level Six of the Non League Football Pyramid in the Midland Combination Premier Division, community football continues to grow at all levels within Heather St Johns Football Club.
