Double joy for Mossley Hill
 Women's Football News 21 May 2010
Double joy for Mossley Hill - 21 May 2010 - Women's Football NewsMossley Hill will have the chance to play Combination football next season after coming a long way in a short space of time.
The club has only been playing senior football for five years but they have just completed the best season in their history, crowned by lifting the North West League Premier Division title.
Mossley Hill eventually emerged as the victors from what has been a four-horse race all season. After Chester City led during the early stages, Mossley Hill took over the running and held out as rivals Fletcher Moss Rangers, who finished runners-up, Chorley and Chester tried to catch up ground on them.
Last week, Mossley Hill completed the 'double' as they defeated Brazil 2-1 after extra time in the Liverpool County Cup Final to lift the trophy for the first time in their history. After Carla Lee had given them a first half, Brazil levelled the scores after the break to take the game into the extra period where, with a penalty shootout just two minutes away, substitute Holly Parkinson settled a closely fought match by heading home the winning goal. It was the perfect end to a Cup run which had already seen them knock out Everton and Liverpool Feds.
The players at Mossley Hill have only been playing senior football for five years, the majority having progressed through junior age groups at the club. They won the Lancashire County League in 2005-06 and were promoted to the North West League, where they carried off the Division One North title the following season.
Strikers Carla Lee and Sophie Perry have both enjoyed excellent seasons, scoring 25 and 19 times respectively to help the team along to their league tally of 87 goals, with a significant contribution also from the midfield. This was backed up by a sound defence which only conceded 19 goals, including no less than 12 clean sheets.
"It would be difficult to name other individuals who contributed significantly, as throughout the season, it was a team effort," says secretary Bob Farrant. "A never say die attitude at all times from the players helped to make a success of the season, none more so than the last minute equaliser against fellow promotion rivals Fletcher Moss Rangers in the last home game of the season, which ultimately brought the final success.
"Our hopes for next season are to continue to try to play attractive football and to establish ourselves in the Northern Combination."
