Wealdstone reserves clinched the Greater London League Division Two North title last week to mark an excellent season for the team managed by Tony Rice, assisted by Steve Green.
"The first big test was a tough league game away to a very physical Headstone Manor, the team managed to win the game 2-1 but were kicked off the park," secretary Mark Barton told Women's Soccer Scene. "This was to prove a pivotal game as the ladies gave as good as they got and let the football do the talking.
"Our next big test came against Denham, who wanted nothing less to do than beat us. The team came back from a 2-1 half time deficit to win 3-2 and go top. Our opponents were beginning to strengthen up their line ups by playing first team ladies and Premier League players, in an effort to halt the ladies' march to the title. Enfield's 3rd team played eight such players and after a comfortable win earlier in the season, the ladies battled to take a valuable point.
"Tower Hamlets were now winning with alarming regularity and with many of our home games rained off, they established a lead at the top. We played a tricky away game at a rejuvenated Islington Borough side, who had signed five Spurs Development players and managed to battle out a 1-0 win despite playing with nine players.
"We were closing the gap at the top but the most important game of the season was to be away at Denham who had the luxury of seven first team players on parade. Again the ladies stepped up to the mark and held on for a vital 3-2 win after Denham mounted a fine comeback from when we were 3-0 up. The game which was to bring us the title was a top of the table showdown away to Tower Hamlets and once again, the Stones came back from 3-1 down to win 5-3 and take the title with two games to spare.
"This GLWFL Division Two North League title was a team effort. The defence hate conceding goals, the midfield provide valuable cover for them as well as supporting our superb offensive players who are top quality. A combination of these solid units form the backbone of a quality unit who love to win and equally hate to lose."
Top goalscorer in the league was Annie Hewitt with 31 goals from only 13 games, winning her the Golden Boot. Lauren Hole weighed in with 26 goals and the team is captained by Katie Rice.
