Chesham United have been one of the longest serving clubs at Combination League level and are now celebrating the best season in their history, winning the South East Combination title with an unbeaten record.
The Clarets were initially members of the South West Combination, having stepped up in 2001, and in recent years became of the perennial challengers, finishing as runners-up to Yeovil Town in 2009-10 and third in the following two seasons, before a switch to the South East Combination last summer.
Chesham started well, beating Crystal Palace 9-1 in the first of four straight victories, but were brought back down to earth in September when dropping points to Chichester City and Cambridge Women. The key turning point was managing to get three points at both title contenders Ipswich Town and Norwich City, which eased the players' concerns about long away matches. They picked up some momentum until the Christmas break and had the disappointment of getting knocked out of both the FA and County Cups in the New Year. However Chesham showed their resilience compared to previous seasons and bounced back by putting five goals past Enfield, MK Dons and Chichester to pull clear of the chasing pack and they clinched the title with a 1-0 win at Cambridge, with four games left to play.
The best individual performances probably go to Kat Bowers who hit a hat-trick within 30 minutes away at Luton and Caz Moran who scored four times in 40 minutes against Enfield - she was only playing half a match to test her fitness! The best team performance came in a 5-0 local derby victory against MK Dons.
The team is managed by Ed Keeler and club stalwart Lisa Welling and captained by Shan Woodward, who is pictured receving the league trophy along with the club's longest serving player, Cath Andrews. Anneka Nuttall finished the season as leading goalscorer and the likes of Caz Moran, Kate Bowers, Dawne Campbell and Nat Adams were also regulars on the scoresheet.
