COLCHESTER United Women head coach Simon King is hoping the triumphant side can add more silverware following their title triumph.

The U's clinched the Essex Women's division two title last weekend, after going through their first-ever league season undefeated.

Colchester's women's side beat runners-up Sudbury Sports Women 3-0 in their final game, at the MEL Group Stadium.

They won all of their games to finish the campaign on maximum points, with a goal difference of 120.

Now they have turned their attention to this Sunday's League Cup Final, where they take on Southminster United Ladies at the Len Salmon Stadium, in Basildon.

King said: "To have won the league and be in a cup final in our first season is a massive achievement and hopefully on Sunday we can win the cup.

"The ladies have worked extremely hard this season and the result was a testament to their dedication, skill and teamwork."


Colchester went in at half-time on level terms against Sudbury, following a goal-less first half.

But second-half goals from Newstead, Ager and Morgan clinched the title.

As the minutes passed, the U’s dominated more of the match and it appeared clearer heads and more composed football secured them the win.

With the final whistle sounding, the score at the end of both halves fairly described their balance of play.

Particular mention has to go to Sudbury’s keeper who pulled off outstanding saves throughout the match and delivered superb service to all areas of the pitch.
