The University of Portsmouth Women's FC has broken all club records with three league titles in three seasons!
The University Women's side have surpassed all expectations this season, securing their third league title in as many seasons after cementing first place in the Southern Region League Premier Division with a 4-1 victory over Oxford United last week.
The Uni side were focussed on consolidating their league position at the beginning of the season after losing their first two games. However an unbeaten run which started in October has seen them finish ten points ahead of their nearest rivals and seeking promotion to the South West Combination.
Captain Louisa Cambridge, who has led the team for the last three seasons, says of their meteoric rise: "What a season, it has exceeded all expectation. We have been very consistent within the league despite having a lengthy injury list! Massive congratulations to the team and everyone involved with the club, we are all looking forward to next season."
Carla Laney, who has scored a club record 70 plus goals over three seasons, originally joined the club from local high fliers Portsmouth Ladies as she was studying at the University, adds: "It has been amazing playing with the same players over the last four years, and we love playing together! It's easy to score this crazy amount of goals when you have such quality players around you."
The club fell just short of a dream season in what would have been a memorable victory over Portsmouth in the Portsmouth Cup Final, narrowly losing out 1-0 on the night to a strong Pompey side who were vying for promotion to the National Division of the Premier League.
The University weekend sides boast a mix of students, ex-students and local based players and have expanded their club to include a number of youth teams for both boys and girls with clear pathways to the senior teams. These teams have been developed in partnership with the Soccerette Academy and the University's own UP for Sport volunteer programme and are run by members of the existing playing staff and officials.
The club are under no illusions about the task ahead of them next season, particularly the extra financial burden involved with the step up to the third tier of the Women's Football Pyramid and are already planning a number of fund raising and recruitment events. The club would love to hear from anyone reading this who is interested in getting behind the team and sponsoring them in any way.
The club are also keen to strengthen their playing squad for next season and would like to hear from anyone who would like to be involved in the club at a very exciting time. The club runs two senior women's teams and a number of youth teams at various age groups.
