English Universities win Championship
 Women's Football News 24 Apr 2010
English Universities win Championship - 24 Apr 2010 - Women's Football NewsDespite having to make alternative arrangements to get home, thanks to the chaos caused by the volcanic eruption in Iceland, the English Universities Women's Football Team returned home victorious from the BUCS Home Nations. 
With some of the team and staff having to quadruple their journey times, it certainly made the experience a memorable one both on and off the pitch.
On the pitch, the team were well prepared, having met as a squad two weeks beforehand at Warwick University to be in good shape for the tournament. This year's squad was made up of a lot of new faces, but although they were new to the English Universities set up, they brought with them a host of experience from FA Women's Premier League Clubs and international experience.
With the likes of Lizzie Edwards, Sophie Perry (both Brighton) and Grace McCatty (Bath) all having been involved at England Under-23 level, the squad had enough experience in it to help the fresh faces understand what would be demanded of them over the four days.
The English Universities team started the tournament with a 2-0 win against the Welsh Universities with goals from Emma Lipman (Leeds Met) and Sophie Perry. With the Welsh Universities drawing 2-2 with the Scottish Universities the next day, it meant that so long as the English Universities avoided defeat against the Scots, the title would be theirs. In the decisive match, the team found themselves 2-0 down, but two goals from Grace McCatty rescued the game for the English and meant they took the title.
It was a just reward for the staff, led by Chris Welburn (Leeds Met), Barry Squires (Bournemouth) and Marco Chiavetta (Loughborough), who worked extremely hard throughout the four days and gave the girls an excellent experience.
English Universities Head Coach, Chris Welburn, commented: "The English Universities squad thoroughly deserved their tournament win. The players deserve a lot of praise for the way they conducted themselves over the four days as they showed a high level of professionalism both on and off the pitch."
