The Tuesday Round-Up – Edition Thirty
Sunday 10th April
Have reached the 30th Edition of The Tuesday Round-Up of what has so far been an exciting women’s football season across the East of England. A packed Sunday with the weather playing virtually no havoc with the fixture lists. Into April the business end of the season, plenty of important games coming up for sides at the top and bottom of the league tables. League cup final places decided in Beds & Herts, Essex and Cambridgeshire at the weekend. A new County Cup Final line up in Essex too. League games are getting completed with sides no starting to play out their games looking to finish on a high. None more so than in the top division covered by Women’s Football East and that’s where we start so let’s go.
FAWPL Southern Division
Brighton and Hove Albion WFC are the Champions of the FAWPL Southern Division. Went into their final league match of the season away to Tottenham Hotspur Ladies having led the FAWPL Southern Division for much of the 2015/16 season. Having played more games than their title chasing rivals had opened up an 8 point lead travelling up to Brimsdown Rovers FC this Sunday to play mid-table Tottenham, knew one final win would give them the title, couldn’t be caught by any side below.
It was to this match that the featured match report on the Supporting Women’s Football Blog came from, travelling down to Brimsdown Rovers FC, saw a tense 1st half, a scrappy contest with both sides working hard to disrupt the others flow in the middle of the park led to few chances being created. Brighton & Hove Albion WFC had edged those chances and on the stroke of half time got their noses in front, Sophie Perry a constant threat on the left flank for the visitors putting a great ball into the area, striker Amy Taylor getting her toe onto the end of it before the advancing Toni-Anne Wayne in the Tottenham goal to turn the ball home, the celebrations releasing a huge amount of tension.
The 2nd half began much the same as the 1st, Brighton defending well against Tottenham as they searched for an equalising goal. With 20 minutes to go Tottenham manager Karen Hills made a change bringing off Wendy Martin and sending on Bianca Baptiste, the powerful striker making an immediate impact hustling the Brighton back line, robbed them of the ball wide right and turned to attack, sending the ball in towards goal from the angle had the power and pace to fly over Brighton keeper, Faye Baker and nestle in the back of the net beyond to cue more excited celebrations, this time from the home side. The lead wasn’t to last for long, Brighton got themselves 2-1 up just 6 minutes later and it was from the boot of Taylor again, curling a shot around Wayne from the edge of the box. The final whistle saw everyone connected with the club rush into the centre circle to celebrate as saw Brighton & Hove Albion WFC win the league title and not only that book them their place in the FAWSL Play-off match at the end of May.
Brighton celebrating their title success at the final whistle
Women’s Football East sends it’s congratulations to all the players, staff and fans of Brighton & Hove Albion WFC. The whole match report from the Supporting Women’s Football Blog can be found on the website below.
That ended the title hopes of the only 2 sides left able to catch Brighton & Hove Albion WFC if they had of slipped up against Tottenham on Sunday, Charlton Athletic Women in 2nd and 3rd placed Cardiff City Ladies. Both weren’t in league action at the weekend. Cardiff City Ladies as a result slip down to 4th in the table as Coventry United Ladies move above them in the table after a 2-1 home win against C&K Basildon Ladies. Had to come back from behind to win the match going into the dressing room 1-0 down at half time, C&K Basildon Ladies, Zoe Rushen scoring from the penalty spot inside the opening 15 minutes. Coventry were pushing hard for a goal saw several efforts saved by Molly Pavey in the C&K Basildon goal before finding the back of the net 6 minutes into the 2nd half, Amber Hughes with the goal to her name. It was an own goal scored by Claire Lacey that saw the 3 points won 12 minutes later. Are now one of 3 sides battling for the runners-up spot in the division along with Cardiff and Charlton.
Portsmouth FC Ladies too still have a chance of clinching the runners-up spot in the FAWPL Southern Division although that was delivered a blow at the weekend as they lost their 2nd successive league match having lost away to Brighton & Hove Albion WFC away last time out were on home soil taking on Lewes Ladies. A single goal scored in the 1st hlf on 38 minutes by Natasha Wells for Lewes enough to see all 3 points go home with the away side in their penultimate league match of the season.
West Ham United Ladies were playing their final league match of the season at home against Queens Park Ladies a place above them in 9th in the FAWPL Southern Division title. A difficult season off the pitch for West Ham United Ladies a player dispute with the manager seeing several experienced 1st team regulars and favourites leave has seen the side blood a number of younger players. End the season with a goalless draw which see’s them finish 10th in the table, will be interesting to watch over the close season to see how the club builds up for the new campaign.
It’s a draw too between the bottom two sides, Plymouth Argyle Ladies and Forest Green Rovers Ladies, both relegated from the FAWPL Southern Division they finally earn another point each, in what has been a tough league season for both. Both goals coming in the 1st half, Summer Taylor put Plymouth Argyle Ladies ahead on the quarter hour mark. Forest Green Rovers Ladies levelled through Annie Martin 12 minutes later to see both sides take a point.
FAWPL South East Division One
Another good Sunday for FAWPL South East Division One leaders, Crystal Palace Ladies as they score 5 at home to maintain their 9 point lead at the top of the table and extend their unbeaten record. Had seen one of their title rivals Gillingham FC Ladies drop points in the chase as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Enfield Town Ladies in mid-week. Welcomed Norwich City Ladies to Bromley FC on Sunday. Went in 1 up at half-time, with Alma Donohoe firing home on 28 minutes. 2nd half Crystal Palace continued to apply pressure to the Norwich defence, Gemma Bryan scoring early in the half before Pamela McRoberts scored on 63 minutes, Francesca Ali put them 4-0 up with 20 minutes left. Bryan adding her 2nd and Crystal Palace’s 5th goal late on to see them reach 18 games unbeaten with 4 to play.
Gillingham FC Ladies having dropped points in mid-week saw their title hopes suffer another blow at home on Sunday in 3rd place they were taking on 2nd placed Milton Keynes Dons Ladies. Took an early lead Jade Keogh put through to score inside 3 minutes. Were pegged back by Milton Keynes Dons Ladies before half-time Charley Clarke levelling the scoreline. The visitors went on to win the game scoring midway through the 2nd half, Leah Cudone scoring what would prove to be the winning goal.
That defeat for Gillingham FC Ladies, coupled with a win for Luton Town Ladies away to Enfield Town Ladies see’s them switch places in the table. Building on last Sunday’s 2-1 home win against Cambridge United WFC. Travelling to the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium, Enfield Town Ladies once again proved they are a tough side to break down, Luton Town Ladies eventually did so on the stroke of half-time an own goal conceded as Natasha Fensome’s shot is deflected into the back of the net, the 3 points were held onto 2nd half as goalkeeper Hollie Staples saved a penalty kick. Up to 3rd with 2 matches left to play.
In 5th place Cambridge United WFC bounce back from last weeks defeat against Luton Town Ladies in style scoring double figures to relegate bottom side Bedford Ladies. Without a single league point since September 2015 it has been on the cards for Bedford for some time only Old Actonians Ladies failure to secure a league win in 2016 has delayed thing’s now they can no longer close the game. Hosted a Cambridge United WFC side that were in the mood for scoring goals. Paige Logie with a hat-trick with a brace each from wide players Becky Taylor and Laura Mills, Laura Bright, Laura Baker, Isabella Simmons, and Faith Hewitt all with a goal each, but the pick of the goals was from central defender Kayleigh-Anne Burt hitting a volley from outside the box into the back of the net as she scores her 1st goal for the club.
Ipswich Town Ladies return to the top half of the FAWPL South East Division One table with an away victory at Old Actonians Ladies on Sunday. Sharon Odofin scoring for Old Actonians from the penalty spot, but it wasn’t enough to secure any points at the 5th time of asking in 2016 as Ipswich Town Ladies won 2-1 goals coming from Aimee Harrison and Roxanne Small. Old Actonians ladies remain 3rd bottom 2 points of 2nd bottom Lowestoft Town Ladies but have plenty of games yet to play a single point would be enough to keep them safe if they could just find it, but won’t matter as their rivals at the bottom have just the one match left to play now. Lowestoft had a chance to move above Old Actonians on Sunday know their chances of avoiding relegation are nearly impossible but whilst their rivals can’t buy a point they have a chance. Were at home against Denham United Ladies on Sunday, Aimee Durrant put Lowestoft into the lead on 30 minutes saw them go into the dressing room with the lead. Denham United Ladies came back 2nd half an own goal putting them level before Lauren Cox and Helen Capewell scored to see them win 3-1 to take all 3 points.
Eastern Regional Leagues
Can never take nothing for granted in any league and it looked odds on that Stevenage Ladies with their games in hand would overhaul Billericay Town Ladies at the top of the ERWFL Premier Division to win promotion to the FAWPL. 3 games in hand 2 points behind they had the chance to take top spot on Sunday at home in a rearranged league fixture against AFC Dunstable Ladies, their local rivals however have if you’ve been following The Tuesday Round-Up have been in a rich vein of form as the season draws to a close 5 wins and a draw in 2016 to date. Were a goal down at the break Stevenage Ladies taking the lead before Dunstable came back 2nd half with 2 goals from Amber Pearson to win the game 2-1. Stevenage Ladies have 3 games left and need 2 wins from those to secure the title assuming Billericay Town Ladies win their final league game. AFC Dunstable Ladies have played out their fixtures securing a comfortable mid-table finish a strong end with 6 wins and a draw in 2016 sure they’d love the season to continue, but positive momentum to carry into the new season.
Despite their win against Stevenage Ladies, AFC Dunstable Ladies actually drop a place in the ERWFL Premier Division table, ties on the same number of points as Colchester Town Ladies with a close goal difference a large win sees Colchester Town up into 4th spot following a 4-1 away win at bottom side Great Wakering Rovers Ladies on Sunday. 2 goals scored by Paige Wakefield plus a goal a piece for Chelsea Forde and Kira Fitz-Patrick saw them win 4-1.

Not quite their yet as Hoddesdon Owls Ladies back in 5th have 4 games left to play and with a possible 12 points to gain Royston Town Ladies need on more result to get over the line, the 2 are scheduled to face each other but it could be all over by then, Hoddesdon though are in a good streak of form and will be aiming for a strong end to the season.
