On this day 10 years ago, Arsenal Ladies won the UEFA Women’s Cup (now Champions League) after drawing 0-0 at home to Umea UIK following their 1-0 away win thanks to a rare Alex Scott goal.
Arsenal Ladies are the only English club to have won the UEFA Women’s Cup/Women’s Champions League and they did against a full-time professional team while they were still semi-pro training just two times a week.
2006/07 was their Invicible season with six trophies conquered – the Community Shield, the Women’s Premier League, the UEFA Women’s Cup, the FA Women’s Cup, the FA Women’s Premier League Cup, and the London FA County Cup.
Their season’s record says it all P44 W42 D2 L0, with the two draws coming in the UEFA Women’s Cup – 2-2 away to Brondby in the semi-final and 0-0 at home to Umea in the final.
It is an incredible achievement that no women’s football club in England is likely to achieve again as FA WSL teams are not allowed to compete in County Cups any more and the Community Shield disappeared a few years ago.
