It has been a miserable twelve months or so for Plymouth Argyle as far as men's football is concerned but in complete contrast, the season just ended has been the most successful ever for the ladies.
After having finished as runners-up in the South West Combination in each of the last three seasons, this time around they finally went one better and did it in some style, winning the league title by nine clear points and going through the season unbeaten. They also lifted the Ambassador League Cup in a thrilling encounter in the Final against Havant & Waterlooville at Weymouth, running out 3-1 winners.
The Pilgrims got their season off to a flying start with a 6-0 victory over Swindon Town and, by Christmas, had won nine of their ten league matches, beating their closest rivals in the process. It became clear that something special was on the cards if the players could maintain their form into the New Year.
This they did as the squad system came into its own, with all the girls playing their part. The Championship was confirmed in a home victory against Devon rivals Cullompton Rangers.
Argyle ended the season with four of the top five goalscorers in the league, Tash Knapman and Emily Mousley sharing top honours for league and cup goals.
Captain Kate Hine said: "Although in the end we won the league by nine points, it was far from easy and I am really proud of the girls. It was a real team effort and we are looking forward to next season."
It has taken the club many years to reach the Premier League, although they have come close on two or three occasions in the past. Chairman Mike Picken added: "The girls have made a supreme effort this season and we are all very proud of their achievements. The Premier League will be a big challenge for us, but is one we will attack with relish as we look to consolidate our position."
