AFC Bournemouth are celebrating winning the Hampshire County Women's League Division Three title but have their sights set on more trophies before the end of the season.
The Cherries clinched the title with a 3-2 win over Widbrook Utd Res last week and marked reward for a great run which has seen them lose just one of their last 28 matches in all competitions, winning 25 of them.
That run included winning the Junior Cup at the end of last season, beating Winchester City Flyers Res in the Final. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength this season and have landed the first of a potential three trophies. Bournemouth play in the semi finals of the Hampshire FA Intermediate Cup this week, where they will again meet Winchester City Flyers Res, and are also in the last four of the Junior Cup once more, they will take on Horndean next month.
The team is managed by Vince Taylor, assisted by Jon Flynn, with Paula Taylor in the role of Player Coach. Rachel Taylor undertakes the important position of Secretary.
"The most important game for us was the one away to Widbrook, as the last point always seems to be the hardest to win," Vince told Women's Soccer Scene. "Our best performance came in the cup match at Basingstoke. We played so well that we didn't let them have the ball - it was a superb exhibition of the passing game."
The team is captained by Nicola Taylor and the goals have been largely shared around the side, Emily Trim is leading scorer with 14 goals to her name. Paula Taylor has contributed a further 13 whilst Jade Tucknott and Sammie Humphries have scored eight apiece.
There has also been a lot of important work done off the pitch and manager Vince Taylor is quick to acknowledge this. "Important roles have been played by Rachel Taylor, for the hard work in doing all the paperwork and keeping the kit clean, and Raymond Payne for keeping the first aid bag up to date," he says.
"Also, most of all the players for showing great commitment in making sure that I can keep the team together without too many changes and AFC Bournemouth for their support."
AFC Bournemouth squad: Leah Giles, Alisha Hogg, Fran Stauber, Jade Tucknott, Nicola Taylor, Katie Flynn, Paula Taylor, Emily Trim, Zoe Cranmer, Danni Ormesher, Zoe Ramshaw, Karin Schori, Sammie Humphries, Sophia Bravo, Gill Neill, Jess Cook.
