Coach of Barbican FC Charles Edwards says his team aims to continue its dominance in the local Women's Football League.

Barbican notched their 11th Jamaica Football Federation (JFF)/Sherwin Williams Women's League title when they beat Waterhouse 4-2 in the final at Stadium East last Sunday.

Tashika Small netted a brace for the champions, scoring in the 13th and 52nd minutes, while Kenesha Reid (11th) and Latoya Duhaney (61st) scored the other goals. Waterhouse's national Under-20 player, Jessica Johnson, scored in the 68th and 90th minutes.

LEAGUE TITLE

It was also Barbican's eighth consecutive league title.

The east St Andrew club has won 24 trophies in women's football and seven Sherwin Williams Colourscape knockout titles, plus six mid-season trophies.

That has made them the most successful club in women's football locally.

Barbican had also beaten Waterhouse 4-1 in the KO final a week earlier.

"We have not lost a game since 2011, so that is a record we would like to strengthen as long as possible," Edwards disclosed.

"It is a fantastic feat in winning so many titles and the girls want to win to add more, so they are motivated and certainly looking forward to next year," the long-serving Barbican coach added.

Barbican FC will be handed the trophy, medals, and $400,000 at the awards ceremony scheduled for Thursday at the JFF's offices in New Kingston.
