Brandon's perfect league season
 Women's Football News 27 May 2015
Brandon Town are celebrating a successful season in the Norfolk League as they carried off the Division Two title with a perfect record of 22 wins from their 22 league games. 
Brandon Ladies FC is part of Brandon Town Youth and Ladies FC. The club has been established for over 20 years and has numerous teams from mini soccer to adult football.
During the 2013-14 season, the Ladies played in the Suffolk Girls and Womens Football League and were runners-up. They also won the League Cup, beating Bury Town and were runners up to AFC Sudbury in the Suffolk County Cup.
"This season, we decided to play in the Norfolk Womens and Girls Football League," manager Sam Samuels told Women's Soccer Scene. "This was mainly to reduce travelling times and play more games. As we were new to the League we had to start in Division Two.
"We only had a small squad of 15 players for the majority of the season," continued Sam, who is assisted by Roger Field. "Often we would only play with the bare eleven. We struggled to find a goalkeeper at the start and were lucky when one of our defenders, Shannon Oderbrecht, offered to give it a go and was very successful. We are hoping she will remain our main keeper for next season but we have now managed to find a reserve keeper as well.
"Our age range is from 16 to 30 years old. We play in yellow shirts, blue shorts and yellow socks and our shirt sponsor is Columbo from the Golden Fried Chicken fast food outlet in Brandon."
Despite the squad size and initial goalkeeper difficulties, Brandon started off in winning style, a habit they were never to lose. "We successfully won the division with a 100% win record, 22 played 22 won," said a proud Sam. "We scored 161 goals and conceded only nine all season.
"The bulk of the goals came from five players, Tiff Forshaw, who is also our captain, led the way with 58, Laura Brame contributed a further 33, while midfielders Brooke Wickens (19), Hazel Shepherd (12) and Tash Rutter (11) also hit double figures. Our biggest win was 18-0 against Freethorpe and we managed seven other games where we scored 10 or more goals.
"We entered two cups in the season, the Suffolk County Cup and the League Cup. We were beaten 1-0 in the First Round of the County Cup by old rivals Bury Town and we were beaten finalists in the League Cup, losing 3-1 to Wymondham Town.
"We are promoted to Division One next season and our aim is to do well in that division, with the hope of moving up the next level at the end of next season."
