Hethersett Athletic Ladies Hearts grabbed runners-up spot in the Norfolk Women’s League Division One after destroying Acle’s 100 per cent league record.

Hearts produced a superb display of attacking football that table topping Acle could not handle. The visitors went into the match with 17 wins out of 17 games and victory would see them finish the season with an unblemished record. Hethersett knew that two wins in their final games would ensure second place.

Having lost heavily to Acle earlier in the season, Hearts came out of the traps with fast and incisive football that soon had the league leaders back peddling. Such was Hethersett’s dominance in the first half that Acle only got into the home penalty area on one occasion and could only fashion one wild shot.

Hethersett, on the other hand, carved out chance after chance and could easily have had a first half hatful but had to be satisfied with a cheeky chip shot from top scorer Hannah Waters and a header by Megan Cletheroe from a corner.

The second half proved more even with Acle coming out of their shells only for player of the match Stacey Annison to increase the home team’s lead. Acle pulled a goal back straight from a corner late on but Hethersett were very good value for the win. With runners-up rivals Cotishall losing, second place was confirmed making the result of their final game of the season against Hockering merely academic.

Meanwhile Hethersett Athletic are re-structuring the ladies side of the club in time for the new season. Currently the club runs two teams with the first playing in the Premier Division of the Eastern Region League.

“We have some very talented players coming up into adult football from our Under-16s side and are looking to re-structure our management and coaching set-up. We are also looking for new players for next season,” said club chairman Peter Steward.

Hearts were desperately unlucky to lose the Norfolk League Cup Final to a goal in the dying seconds of extra-time in a match that the advantage swung backwards and forwards throughout.

It was an exciting game with both teams attacking and the lead changing hands on numerous occasions. Hethesett looked to be going down to a big defeat when they were two goals down after 18 minutes. Such is their resilience this season however that by half-time they were level thanks to two goals from Hannah Waters, both of which saw her outpace the Acle defence.

The second half was even until the 84th minute when Hethersett looked to have won the game as Lisa Ferdani fired home to make it 3-2. Just two minutes later, however, Acle poked the ball home after a goalmouth melee to make it 3-3 and take the match to extra time.

Waters made it 4-3 in the first period of extra-time to complete her hat trick only for Acle to equalise again seconds into the final period. Then with just a minute left Acle scored the winner with a fierce drive from a free kick awarded just outside the penalty area.
