Sky high Blues
 Women's Football News 10 Jun 2010
Sky high Blues - 10 Jun 2010 - Women's Football NewsCoventry City will be playing in the Premier League next season and not many people can begrudge them this achievement.
The Sky Blues had finished as runners-up in each of the previous three seasons but this time around, they made no mistake as they stormed to the Midland Combination title by a winning margin of thirteen points having led the table all season, with 19 wins from their 22 matches.
The season began with a 1-0 victory over Loughborough Foxes, captain Natasha Lynch scoring the only goal with a 40-yard strike, and it was the launch pad for a great start to the campaign for Coventry as they won all of their opening seven games, before the run ended with a goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers. However, this only served to be a temporary halt as the Sky Blues won every single league match from that point until the league title was clinched.
Coventry had been chased for much of the season by Sporting Club Albion and it was against the eventual runners-up that they secured the Championship with a 3-0 victory, Helen Dermody scoring two of the goals with Robyn James adding the other.
Robyn James ended the season as leading goalscorer with 17 to her name and the new additions of midfield general Leanne McKenna - who was voted as the club's Player of the Year recently - as well as cultured centre half Gemma Clarke and goalkeeper Netty Manca have boosted the squad as all have made awesome contributions to a team which kept 14 clean sheets over the course of the season. Captain Natasha Lynch and vice captain Helen Dermody have both helped lead the team in different ways towards the same goal.
"It has been a fantastic season for everyone involved with the club," says manager Paul Cudby. "The committee, coaches and players have all put in a huge amount of effort and sustained it throughout the season with so many high points, culminating in winning 3-0 away at the only team that could catch us.
"It's been really pleasing to see the team evolve, grow and come together through the year. Going into next season, we know that things are going to change with new additions to the club both on and off the pitch, we know that everyone at the club will have to step things up in everything we do. We also have to capitalise on our main strength from this year, our team spirit and togetherness. The squad has continually changed over the last two seasons as we look to progress and I am really excited to see us take on this challenge next year.
"Our aim next season is survival first and foremost, once that is achieved we will look to kick on and establish ourselves in the league above. The club is highly ambitious and the promotion is hopefully the start of things to come, we're not just happy to be part of the Premier League."
