Albion tame Wolves to take title
 Women's Football News 6 May 2011
Sporting Club Albion clinched the Midland Combination title and promotion to the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Albion had their first effort on five minutes, which was well saved by Wolves keeper Natalie Hall. Albion dominated the first quarter hour but Wolves managed to get a foothold in the game and enjoyed possession in the opposition half for long periods, without fashioning a clear cut chance. On the half hour mark an Amber Quick cross nearly caught out Albion keeper Beccy Thomas as the ball floated dangerously over the crossbar.
On 38 minutes, an Albion corner was allowed to drop on the edge of the six yard box and Ashleigh Neville scrambled the ball over the line to put Albion ahead. The visitors knew that only a win would see them finish as Champions and continued to push forward with Wolves keeper Hall forced into an outstanding double save just two minutes later.
The second goal did however arrive just before half time as the ball fell to Neville on the edge of the Wolves box. She smashed the ball past Hall, who did well to get a glove on the effort but could not stop it from finding the corner of the net.
Despite Wolves' intent they were unable to create anything meaningful in the second half. Rebecca Large also picked up an injury and was replaced by Sarah Lambeth, who herself was making her first appearance for 18 months after a serious knee injury.
A scrappy second half saw neither side exert any dominance as Albion cruised to victory to win promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history.
