Sheffield steel up for Premier League

Sheffield steel up for Premier League - 30 May 2011 - Women's Football News

Sheffield FC will be playing Premier League football for the first time next season after winning the Northern Combination title at the first attempt. 
The Yorkshire side led the table virtually all season and clinched the crown with two matches to play, finishing up with an impressive eleven point margin.
Sheffield FC have enjoyed an impressive few seasons with the team now having won three league titles in four seasons, and they have not failed to finish outside of the top two for the past six seasons. "We honestly never expected to be in this position at all," admits Sheffield manager of eight seasons, Helen Mitchell. "Yes, we had a very good pre-season and were confident that we'd be able to compete at this level, but we never imagined for a minute that we'd be coming away with the title at all, never mind with two matches still to go.
"It's been an amazing season and we're all very excited about winning another league title."
Sheffield have come a very long way in a relatively short space of time. Formed in 2003 and playing at the bottom of the women's pyramid, a huge amount of hard work and dedication from staff and players enabled the team to start to progress up the ranks, gaining recognition, and securing their first promotion in 2007-08 having been runners up the two previous seasons. This first success proved the catalyst, and the team has enjoyed three unbelievable seasons, culminating in the latest success which will bring Premier League football to the Club for the very first time.
"The last few years have been so exciting," explains Helen, "but it's still more than a little bit hard to believe we'll be playing FA Women's Premier League football next season! The players have been so brilliant again this year - they live and breathe it, and we couldn't have asked for more from them.
"We've been so lucky to have such a fantastic group; they have worked extrememly hard each week, and I am thrilled for them to have achieved what they have. They are such a credit to the Club, and Nigel [Hughes - assistant coach] and I are immensely proud of them."
"Next season will be an enormous step up for us, and we're under no illusions about that, so we will enjoy the moment now, then get our heads down, build and work hard in the summer to prepare for another new challenge."
