A double for Sunderland Women in 2011-12…

Sunderland Ladies (now Women) were Women’s Premier League National Division champions three years running between 2011 and 2013, with the middle campaign seeing them lift the Women’s National League Cup as well.

After coming through group 5 unbeaten, Manchester City, Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers were all eliminated in the knockout stages en route to the final. Held at Sixfields Stadium in Northampton, the showpiece saw a Natalie Gutteridge double against Leeds United secure the cup, the brace meaning a total of 15 goals had been scored in the tournament by Mick Mulhern’s team.

In 2014 they won the newly formed Super League 2 but the club has since seen several changes. After some difficult times they are on rise again in what is now called the Championship, under the fantastic stewardship of Mel Reay.
