Tipton Town Ladies FC were fortunate to be part of the first ever Lucozade Sport Performance League this season, pitting their results on the pitch against 80 other men's and women's teams from all over the country.
They had been the strongest women's squad overall, narrowly missing out on the top spot and finishing a respectable sixth when it all came to a close at the end of the season.
Tipton were invited by the LSPL to Old Trafford to watch the Lucozade Sport Performance League winners Drumchapel Utd playing Most Improved Team winners Oakwood F.C.
"We assumed all of the teams in the LSPL would be there but, when we arrived, we literally had the place to ourselves," said Tipton secretary Susan Albrighton. "This was an amazing treat as Kiren Rana, Sarah Grove, and Kayleigh Turner are all avid Manchester United fans.
"When we arrived, we could sit literally anywhere in the 75,000+ seats and a few of the ladies even sat in Sir Alex Ferguson's chair in the dugout. The match was fantastic, both teams really fought hard and we were told that if we had hung on to the top spot, it would of been us playing at the 'Theatre Of Dreams'. The official Manchester United match commentator Alan Keegan read out all of our squad's names and even interviewed manager Faye Harrison at half time.
"After the match, we were treated to some food and drink with the two teams who had played. Then, after a few words from the organisers, we were shocked to be presented with the LSPL Club Of The Year award and shortly after Kiren Rana was presented with her Golden Boot Trophy after fending off stiff competition from the other 800+ hopefuls in the league. Kiren has had an amazing season this year, scoring a phenomenal 8 hat-tricks and 30 goals out of 21 appearances. This was with a mid-season break to India - who knows what she could have done if she was here for the whole period. We also had an amazing treat of being in the presence of the Barclays Premiership Trophy.
"On top of gaining promotion to the Premier Division (of the Birmingham County League), this has certainly topped off an amazing year and we cant thank the LSPL enough for making us feel more like a Premiership club."
