VICTORY over rock bottom Hampton – who have claimed just six points all season – in tomorrow’s final game of the season will see Uttoxeter Ladies crowned Feeder West champions.

The Thomas Alleyne’s outfit remain one point clear of second-placed Stone after a comfortable win over Edgbaston last weekend.

Utoxeter started the stronger of the two sides and were first to every tackle.

The hosts made all the early running with fantastic link-up play and creative runs, but despite creating numerous early chances goals failed to arrive.

Midway through the first half Uttoxeter finally penetrated the Edgbaston defence.

Laura Walsh embarked on a superb run down the right and threaded a pass though to Anna Young, who drilled the ball across the face of the goal.

Jo Rea just about managed to meet the cross, and poked beyond the flapping keeper.

Uttoxeter soon added a second following some bright build-up play down the right.

Caroline Lawson claimed possession at the top of the D and switched the ball across to the onrushing Laura Sims, who finished the move with a trademark shot – drilling the ball past the Edgbaston keeper and into the bottom left corner.

The hosts continued to create chances after the break, with play becoming increasingly stretched.

Rea bagged two more goals in the second half to make sure of all three points.

In the dying seconds the away side managed to pull one goal back to make the final scoreline 4-1.

Tomorrow’s away fixture at Hampton Arden is a 1.30pm push-back.

Uttoxeter 1XI players’ player: Rachel Vernon.
