After finishing as runners-up in each of the last two seasons, TNS Ladies are celebrating promotion to the Premier League after they won the Premier Division title in the West Midlands League.
TNS were confirmed as Champions to round off an excellent campaign for the club and manager Joe Thompson, who is assisted by Will Wynn. "We are currently unbeaten this season, apart from a 3-0 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup," he said. "We have enjoyed a fantastic season on the pitch.
"We started slowly, winning two and drawing two in our first four games but after that, we didn't drop any points in the league until mid-March - a run which put us in pole position to win the league, which we did on 17th April when winning 6-0 at Wednesfield.
"Our best performance of the season was probably away at Knowle in the League Cup quarter final. The pitch was a typical mid-season mid-winter pitch, awful conditions, but the football we played that day was a joy to watch. The game finished 2-0, but we controlled the game from start to finish. The title clinching win also obviously sticks out, the football we managed to play on the pitch was a real credit to us, and to run out 6-0 winners in a game of that magnitude is a huge credit to the squad.
"Emily Ridge is our leading goalscorer this season and is currently on 47 goals in all competitions. It would be amazing that if in our last two games, she could get over that 50-goal mark, what an achievement that would be. Club captain is Amy Tomei, who once again has been a great leader on the pitch, and someone who can be relied on to put in top class performances week in week out.
"Other notable things is that we currently have three of the club's Under-18s as first team regulars. Goalkeeper Ceri Evans, who has enjoyed a superb season in the first team, only conceding 11 league goals so far this season. Maddie Jones, who can play wide and up front, has also been top class this season scoring ten goals in all competitions at 17 years old and in her first season at this level. Michelle Pasco, who played for us last season as well, is a second year Under-18, but is a very intelligent central midfielder who can also play at the back, and is again looking forward to a long and successful time playing football.
"The club is thriving at the minute with seven teams ranging from Under-10s to ladies football. A lot of hard work has gone into player recruitment at all ages and ability levels, which I believe makes TNS a very attractive opportunity for any girls/ladies looking to get into football."
