ACCRINGTON Girls and Ladies Under 11s A football team are celebrating a double winning season.
It was a tense finish to their league season as, after beating Haslingden 2-0 on Thursday, they needed one point from their final game.
Laura Starkie and Carrie Ingham were on target against Haslingden while the Player of the Match was Vicky Beard.
It meant they needed to at least draw against Thornton Cleveleys in the final game on Sunday to take the title.
It was never going to be easy as Thornton, up until recently, had been contenders for the top spot.
Ciara Borwick eased some nerves to make the score 1-0 while keeper Lucy Chadwick kept AGSA ahead at half-time.
Carrie Ingham made it 2-0 but Thornton then got one back. Emily Airey hit the crossbar and a defender with the ball before Ingham pounced to celebrate her second goal of the match to take the score to 3-1.
Thornton got one back to make it a nervous eight final minutes for AGSA but they held on and were crowned champions. Player of the match was Carrie Ingham.
Prior to this, in the North Valley Girls League Cup final, the Under 11s - whose kit are sponsored by New Century Mouldings - won 3-2 against Myerscough.
Honours were even over the season as both teams had one win each so it was never going to be an easy game.
In a tight first half, AGSA scored first when a left wing cross from Beard fell at the feet of Ingham who slotted home.
More chances came for both sides with Chadwick making some crucial fingertip saves.
The second half continued in the same way with Myerscough scoring two quick fire goals.
With three minutes remaining, sub Courtney Prestage scored at the back post to take the game into extra-time.
Both teams were tiring but then a long ball from Player of the Match Laura Starkie sent Ingham through and she slotted home the winner.
The Under 16s couldn't quite repeat the feat as they lost 3-2 to Lammack in the North Valley Cup final after extra-time - but felt they were robbed.
Lammack were given a controversial opening goal which was debatable whether it crossed the line.
However, Keara Booth had a say in the equaliser as the ball trickled over the goalline. In the second half, Lammack again took the lead and AGSA then piled on the pressure with Demi Raith firing home to take the match into extra-time.
Lammack scored the winner in extra-time with another controversial goal - what AGSA felt was a certain off-side.
Player of the Match was Michelle Brandon for AGSA who finished runners-up in their league.
