Chelsea unite on social media to salute trophy laden season

Chelsea have won the FA Youth Cup, the women’s FA Cup and they will take on Manchester United this weekend to win the men’s FA Cup, too.

It was a clean sweep for Chelsea Ladies, too, as Emma Hayes – pregnant with twins and unable to attend the game last night – and her team lifted the FA WSL trophy after a 2-0 victory over Bristol City.

It was an evening of celebration for everyone at the club, with Carlo Cudicini of the men’s coaching staff, Jody Morris, the trophy-winning youth team coach, and other club figures like men’s team defender Cesar Azpilicueta sending their messages of congratulation to the victorious women.

It was a superb season for Chelsea’s women’s side who were simply the best team in the country. Defeat German giants Wolfsburg, one of the best clubs in the women’s game, was the only blot on the copybook as the Blues fell at the semi-final stage in the Champions League to ensure they wouldn’t be traveling to Kiev next week for a showpiece final, but lifting the league and cup double will certainly suffice for now.

Indeed, at the PFA awards this season, Chelsea had five of the six nominees for Player of the Year, which was eventually won by Fran Kirby who has been the star of the show this campaign.

This year, it’s been great to see how united the top clubs in England are on social media. Bringing their men’s, women’s and youth teams together under one umbrella only helps to raise the profile of women’s football and as a result, the public interest and standard of football continues to rise.
