Whitley's maiden Cup success
 Women's Football News 17 May 2010
Whitley's maiden Cup success - 17 May 2010 - Women's Football NewsWhitley Bay lifted the Northumberland FA Womens Cup for the first time in their short history after a penalty shootout victory over Newcastle Utd Res at Whitley Park in the Final.
The scores had remained level after extra time to take the game to its dramatic conclusion.
Whitley had started the game in confident mood and were using the pace of Rachel Kay and Jo Suddes on both flanks to good effect. Newcastle had included first team regular and Northern Ireland International Rachel Furness to give experience to a youthful Newcastle outfit and she showed her class with a dominant first half display. In fact a strong run through the centre of Whitley's defence saw her blast over the bar when through on goal.
After 30 minutes, it was Newcastle that got the breakthrough as a Furness ball found a Newcastle forward clear of the Whitley defence as they expected the offside flag. It didn't come and she calmly slotted the ball past the advancing Catherine Clough in the Whitley goal.
The score remained at 1-0 at half time. After the interval, Whitley camped in the Newcastle half, looking for an equaliser.
Nikki Smith entered the fray on 70 minutes and had an immediate impact on the game as a Donna Brown corner was cleared to the edge of the box and Smith sent a fantastic first time shot into the roof of the net for the equaliser.
Whitley then enjoyed a golden spell as they piled the pressure on the Newcastle back line. Further substitutes Lisa Coleman and Stacey Simpson combined on 75 minutes for Simpson to stride into the box and drive a great strike into the corner of the net.
In what was turning into a great game, Whitley's celebrations were short lived as Laura Fenwick equalised within minutes, to take the tie to extra time.
The first period was an end to end affair but the best chance fell to Sarah Coleman, played in by her sister Lisa, but she shot wide. In the second period, Whitley again had chances to win the game, but they couldn't find the target, so the game was decided on penalties.
Newcastle's first was blasted over and their second was saved by Clough whereas Mel Carr, Stacey Simpson, Lisa Coleman and Julie Twaddle all found the target with perfectly taken spot kicks to win the game.
It was Whitley's first final win, after being last year's beaten finalists and having been knocked out at the semi final stage by Newcastle in the two previous seasons.
