Belper Hockey Club ladies secured the Midlands Premier title with a 4-0 win over Lichfield.

It was a tense first half as the club struggled to get the goal they needed despite a number of chances.

Lichfield were determined not to make it easy and they threatened to upset the party with three penalty corners.

But Sarah Glenn, who has just been selected for the England U16 Squad to travel to Holland at Easter, settled everyone’s nerves in the 41st minute after driving accurately into the corner of the net for the vital breakthrough goal.

Jo Lane made it 2-0 in the 45th minute, before captain Sally Goodman made it 3-0 in the 52nd minute with her 19th goal of the memorable season.

Kyla Madsen then wrapped up a wonderful season with a fourth goal in the 61st minute.
