Chelmsford complete double triumph - 17 May 2011 - Women's Football News

Chelmsford City Res rounded off a fantastic season when clinching the Essex County League Cup for the first time by beating Premier Division side FC Clacton 3-1 in the Final on a windy afternoon at White Notley F.C.
Chelmsford, newly crowned Division One Champions, kicked into the strong wind in the first half and made the early running with a couple of half chances during a cagey opening period. It was FC Clacton who took a 12th minute lead after a few minutes of pressure which culminated in Alix Hammett's 25-yard effort dropping over the keeper's head into the net.
Within a minute City were level with an almost identical goal at the other end. Grainne McLaughlin found herself with acres of space in the centre of midfield and her speculative shot from the same distance looped over the keeper and dropped into the net just under the bar.
Both teams worked hard to break down the opposing defences but could only create half chance efforts from outside the box with the keepers commanding their areas well. City's keeper Sarah Waters was out well to foil Jasmine Cox who was through on goal while at the other end, a great low ball into the box by McLaughlin swept across the face of the six yard box with two City strikers inches away from getting the decisive touch.
The second half saw City kicking with the strong wind at their backs and they slowly gained the better of the possession although Clacton's nippy strikers looked dangerous early on. Chelmsford thought they had taken the lead after 55 minutes when a corner was bundled over the line but it was ruled out for a push on the keeper.
On 66 minutes, Sarah Jolly found herself on the edge of the Clacton box, she cut inside her marker and curled a beautiful right foot shot into the bottom right hand corner to put the 'clarets' in front.
Three minutes later, top goal scorer Michelle Taylor beat the offside trap and as she entered the area, drilled a right foot shot past the keeper for their third.
Clacton, to their credit, kept trying to get the ball forward but Chelmsford's defence continued to work hard denying them any space in and around the box.
Rachel Armstrong saw her crisply struck free kick well held by the keeper on the line and then a number of speculative shots went wide of the post.
As the final whistle blew, City's players were able to celebrate lifting this trophy for the first time and both teams should be commended for a sporting contest played in the correct spirit which was a credit to women's football.
