Kirby fires Royals to victory
The Royals needed just a point from their clash with second placed Millwall Lionesses, but sealed the league in style with a 2-0 victory at The Den.
Goals from Fran Kirby and Becky Jane earned all three points in East London - just a fortnight after the ladies were granted Super League status and sealed a County Cup double.
It also caps a remarkable campaign for Kirby, who finishes as the division's top scorer with 19 goals despite playing just 12(+4) games after breaking her ankle early in the season. She has 30 strikes to her name in all competitions.
"Playing at the New Den was quite intimidating and there was a good crowd, most of them for Millwall of course and it was nice to win. The club support us a lot and we got a lot of backing from the men's side."
Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Kelly Chambers and her squad for a superb season!
