Beechfield United Ladies played there final game on Sunday 21st August in the Manchester FA's Womens Summer League against Manchester Girls Beechy needing a win and Manchester girls only a draw to win the Title

The match was played at Platt Lane Complex in Fallowfield and from the kick-off a nervous looking Beechy struggled to get into the game

Enjoying a greater share of the ball Manchester Girls caused real problems for Beechy and keeper Rachel Howard was called into action many times but she confidently dealt with shots on target and crosses from both flanks

Beechy slowly got a foothold in the game and both Alicia Stretton and Sophie Wainwright came close to putting Beechy ahead with decent shots on target

But it was Manchester Girls who grabbed the lead following a defensive mix up that left a Manchester Girls player with a easy finish

During thne half time break the Beech Ladies were introduced to their new team coach who issued instructions on how he wanted them to play in the second half and Beechy responded superbly producing a vastly improved performance

But its goals that win games games and Beechy couldn't find a way to beat the opposing keeper and taking advantage of another piece of slack defending Manchester Girls scored again to secure a 2-0 victory and claim the title forcing Beechy to settle for runner's up spot

Beechys P.O.M was RACHEL HOWARTH
