Coventry crowned County Champions
 Women's Football News 24 Apr 2010
Coventry crowned County Champions - 24 Apr 2010 - Women's Football NewsIn a thrilling Tesco County Cup Final held at Birmingham County Headquarters, Coventry City Girls emerged as
2-1 winners against Leafield Athletic.
This is the first time in the club's history they have won the Girls County Cup. The result means that Coventry City Under-16 progress to the next stage of the Tesco Cup competition, the Central Regional Final, to be held at Perry Bar on Sunday 25 April.
Coventry went in the finals as favourites having beating Leafield twice in the league this season but Leafield gaining a victory in the League Cup. Leafield went ahead in the third minute of the game when a early corner came in and was headed home from six yards by Ellis Read. For the reminder of the first half Coventry never got going and went in 1-0 down at half time.
At half time the management team of manger Darryl Fletcher and coaches Alan Beasley and Neil Wilson must have said the right things as Coventry equalised within two minutes of the restart. Helina Phillips got free in the middle of the park and release a shot which the Leafield keeper could not hold onto and Kayeigh Pahnke reacted quickest to bring City level.
From this point on Coventry dominated and the winning goal came direct from a free kick, taken by Rachel Stanley and was too good for the Leafield keeper who could only help the ball into the net.
There was a late scare for Coventry when a soft penalty was conceded but under the pressure, Sam Edgar blasted the ball over the bar. This lifted Coventry and they ran out the final few minutes with ease.
Coventry manager Darryl Fletcher could not hide his delighted at the end of the game. "I am extremely proud of the girls today winning the County Cup today, a first for this club," he said.
Coventry City Girls now play on Sunday along with nine other County Champions at a Tournament in Birmingham. "Next Sunday is a step into the unknown for us," added Darryl, "but I am confident my girls will give a good account for themselves and let's see how well we can do."
Coventry City Girls Squad: Abby Thompson, Hayley Griffiths, Emily Clews, Kelsey Pringle-Andrews, Lucy Finn, Beth Fletcher, Emily Burns, Deanna Ottaviano, Rachel Stanley, Kayleigh Pahnke, Amy Perret, Helina Phillips, Emma Randle, Pavendeep Rai, Lauren Kent, Hannah Wilson, Alex Shilton, Olivia O'Connor.
