Tottenham Hotspur have reached the Premier League for the first time in their 19-year history after a superb season in which they swept to the South East Combination title by a nine point margin.
Spurs led the table for most of the campaign despite challenges by the likes of Norwich, Milton Keynes Dons and Enfield amongst others and a huge factor in their success was their home record where, for the season season running, they went undefeated.
The arrival of manager Karen Hills at the start of last season signalled an upturn in the club's fortunes and the former Charlton Athletic defender started to build on the existing squad with experienced players at that level. "When I arrived at Spurs Ladies, I outlined a two-year plan for the team to gain promotion so naturally I am over the moon with the success we've had this season which is down to the hard work of all the girls," she said.
Looking forward to the new challenges, Karen said: "We know that the season ahead will be a tough one, having played a number of sides from this league during the season. During the summer, I hope to add some further experienced players to the squad and I know with a good pre-season, we'll be ready to give our best come the start of August. The most important thing will be to consolidate our position in the league and anything beyond will be a bonus."
The season finished on a high for the players when they were invited to meet their male counterparts at Spurs Lodge and also to be presented to the White Hart Lane crowd at half time in the final Premiership fixture against Birmingham City. "It's been a fantastic couple of weeks for the first team and the visit to Spurs Lodge was the icing on the cake for the squad," added Karen. "We now need to get our feet back on the ground, have a few weeks off and start the push for next season."
