Arsenal Ladies became the first British club to win the UEFA Women's Cup after holding Swedish side Umea scoreless in front of a 3,467 crowd at Borehamwood FC's Meadow Park.

Arsenal, 1-0 up from last week’s first leg thanks to a 90th minute winner from Alex Scott, survived several anxious moments against the favourites, who have World Player of the Year Marta in their ranks.

Three Irish internationals, Emma Byrne, Ciara Grant and Yvonne Treacy, played key roles in the Gunners' run to the final against Europe's only full-time professional women's team.
