Crewe LFC are another team which has made great advances in women's football and they are set for Premier League football after carrying off the Midland Combination Championship.
The early part of the season saw the leadership change virtually every week but a great second half to the campaign saw Crewe pip Leafield Athletic to the title by a margin of two points.
Tracy Sloane topped Crewe's scoring charts with a haul of 20 goals but special mention must go to their defence which conceded only 20 goals in their 22 league matches, built on the highly influential defensive partnership of Beth Ragdale and Beth Clark, and five clean sheets in the last six matches helped see them home.
Coach Danny Robb has also been highly influential in Crewe's success, with meticulous preparation before matches and challenging, but fun, coaching sessions. The squad is a very harmonious group of players, with no 'big time Charlies'.
Continued links with MMU Cheshire has provided a steady stream of quality players to the club over the years, to augment those of the home grown variety. Many of the current squad are previous graduates of the University whilst many of the younger players will look to go to study at the establishment. Danny Robb is a graduate whilst secretary Russ Edwards is currently studying Sports Psychology as a mature student.
Working very closely with Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council has reaped rewards as the team will be playing on the authority's brand new Premier pitch at the Cumberland Sports Arena. The club already benefits from the arrangement as they have trained on a third generation artificial surface at the same location all season, a factor which has had a major influence on the club's success.
The club has been cultivating a relationship with Crewe Alexandra Football Club for the past couple of seasons, and next season will see them change their name to Crewe Alexandra LFC as a result of a mutual partnership agreement with the professional club's Community project. The Ladies will receive kits from the club and use of their facilities for summer training whilst the ladies club will provide a player pathway for the graduates of the licenced Centre of Excellence.
