Clapham United manager Kate Fidler has paid tribute to her team's efforts after they clinched the Greater London League Division Two North title last week, with a 7-0 win over Camden Town Res.
Clapham, who are captained by Nicola Ridd, need to win their last two games in order to finish the season with a 100% record and Kate, who has scored 33 times this season, points out that everyone has made a contribution to their success.
"We have two other players in the top five scorers in the League - Charlotte Lawrence (20) and Letitia Campous-Lennon (19)," she said. "I'd also like to point out that we have only conceded five goals in the league (so far, two games left to play) and therefore would like to call out our defence along with our goalkeeper Victoria Baxter.
"A special mention would go to Kirsty Marshall who last season had to have her ACL replaced and this season, whilst still recovering, she attended all games (home and away) and took our warm ups. In February she was finally able to make her return.
"Overall it's very much been a team effort to win the league and keep the 100% win rate going. We made some new signings over the summer and that really made a big difference for us, both in terms of having good availability each week, but also in terms of improving the quality of our squad.
"The standout performance of the season was our game away to Denham in December. We had already beaten them earlier in the season and they had drawn one game so we knew going into the game that if we could win, then we had a possible eight point advantage over them. We were 1-0 down at half time and honestly, we were lucky it wasn't more. In the second half we came out and gave the best 45 minutes of the season. The game finished 3-1 and we hit the woodwork three times.
"The other standout result for me was our game against Clapham Kicks just two weeks prior to this. The weather conditions were quite extreme as the wind was strong but we managed to win the game 2-1, scoring the winner late into the second half.
"Between these two games I think the whole team really started to believe that we could go on and win the league - something that we have never achieved before - and since then we have had a determination in us to keep the results going."
