Lucy added: I am really proud and excited to be made captain for this season. I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and I know that the girls can kick on from what we achieved last season as we aim for promotion.

Everyone connected with the club are delighted with the appointment.

Reserves Managers Player

Our reserve team managers player of the year award goes to Sam Deverdics.
One of the hardest decisions trying to pick one player to take the award in a season where the team won the league and Cup. Every single player contributed to what we wanted from the season.
However as we lost Zoe early in the season who returned back home to Manchester we were left with zero centre backs both Sam and Coley stepped up to fill the gap. Sam moving from her usual forward position to centre back. Coley doing the same from centre mid to centre back. Coley then had to take a break however we did then find a superb centre back in Emma Parker.
Sam and Parker have been superb since lockdown. Sam literally taking one for the team to ensure we obtained our goal of promotion. Congratulations from all at the club πŸ’›πŸ’š

Reserves Players Player

Huge congratulations to our midfielder Rachael who picked up the reserve team players player of the year.
Not only did Rachael amass 26 goals in helping the team achieve the league and Cup double, her infectious personality and positive attitude was something her team mates love about her.
Congratulations Rach πŸ’›πŸ’š

League Cup Final

WBC Womens Reserves 2-0 Forest Hall.

A dramatic cup final today at Sam Smith Park. After already having to make changes due to cup tied players, we were down to 10 after 15 minutes after a red card.However despite the opposition having the numerical advantage we still managed to control the game against an impressive young Forest Hall team. The players had to dig deep in baking hot conditions. First goal came after a Michaela shot was superbly saved by the impressive opposition Goalkeeper however as ever on the spot first was Rachael Hepple to pop the ball into an empty net. Forest Hall through caution to the wind as the game went on however we held firm and restricted any shots on target. The game was sealed with 7 minutes to go as Hannah Gosnold who had to drop back to left back got herself room in the box to beat a couple of players before rifling the ball home. This made it a League and Cup double for the team, well done to our opponents who really made us work very hard for the win.
