Spence: Heads we win
news Wed 16 May 2018
Drew Spence kicked off Chelsea Ladies' 2017/18 season with a goal against Bristol City and the Blues midfielder was on target again against the same opponents to help clinch the WSL1 title.
We began our campaign with a thumping 6-0 win over the Vixens, with Spence netting the opener at our new Kingsmeadow home with a diving header, and with the championship at stake she put her head to good use once again to give us the lead.
A Jonna Andersson strike late on completed the victory and ensured we added the WSL1 title to the Women's FA Cup already claimed earlier this month, bringing Spence and Chelsea Ladies' overall tally of trophies to five.
'We've been working all year for this,' said the 25-year-old, speaking to the official Chelsea website. 'We were happy when we lifted the FA Cup, but it wouldn't have been a complete season without winning the league.
'Manchester City pushed us, it's been a hard schedule with a lot of games and they've lost a couple recently. We had to make sure we got these last two wins to finish it. This was one of my most important goals. We weren't performing at our best and I was happy to get the first goal.
'I've tried to be consistent with my performances all season and I would like to have got more goals and assists, but that's something I can work on for next year.'
As well as standing on the brink of an unbeaten season, the Blues are also pushing for 100 goals, having taken our tally for the season to 99.
'Hopefully we can get to 100 goals in the last game. I didn't even realise we'd scored that many, but hopefully we can do it.'
