Sunday 13th May

Essex Women’s League Cup

 This Sunday saw the Final of the Essex Women’s League Cup being played at Runwell Sports FC. Corringham Cosmos winners of the League Cup last season in their debut season in women’s football once again reaching the final defending their trophy up against strong opponents in Lawford Ladies both sides still well in contention for the Essex Women’s Premier Division. Had met the weekend before Lawford scoring the blow winning the game 5-2 the first loss in the league for Corringham Cosmos’ young side this season. 

  Corringham Cosmos taking an early lead in the final held a 3-0 advantage at the break, Lawford getting 2 goals back in the 2nd half through Erin Hornby and Susan Jackson, Corringham Cosmos went on to score 3 more times themselves to win 6-2 and win the Essex Women’s League Cup for the 2nd successive season. 

 A little extra for The Round-Up this time seeings as I couldn’t be there I asked the winning side for a brief report from the game and Corringham Cosmos manager Irving Lyon was kind enough to supply a few words…

 ‘In only our second season in ladies football we again went into the final as underdogs as we had lost to Lawford only the week before in the league.
However an early goal by free scoring centre-forward Chloe Sams quickly calmed the pre-match nerves and further goals from Shellie Sumpter and Becky Gallagher meant that we went in 3-0 up at half time.
Lawford started the second half strongly, quickly reducing the deficit to 3-1 but Cosmos showed their usual resolve, determination and team spirit to increase the lead to 5-1 with further goals from Chloe Sams and Shellie Sumpter before Lawford scored a 2nd. Fittingly Chloe Sams completed the scoring and her hat-trick to ensure the Cup was staying in Corringham.
Just by way of back ground info the team is celebrating a decade together having started as U11s, with quite a few of the originals still playing and I’m the lucky fella who has coached them throughout with a lot of help from a good friend Martin Painter. The secret to the success has been the loyalty shown to the club by the girls the best example of which is girls regularly making long trips home from University to turn out for the team.’
