Basingstoke Town will be looking forward to Premier League football for the first time next season after finishing on top in a well contested title race in the Southern Region League.
"After a successful pre-season campaign, we started the season in good form, winning our first three games without conceding a goal," Basingstoke manager Rob Quilter told Women's Soccer Scene. "We showed great character by winning 2-1 away to Milton Keynes City with a depleted squad in and torrential weather. This was the turning point where the players began to believe we could win it all.
"A key part of our league success has been the way we defended as a team to keep eleven clean sheets out of sixteen league games.
"Towards the end of the season, we had two key results which were a 1-0 win at home against title contenders Marlow and our last match, which finished 3-2 against Newbury. To win these games under great pressure shows the character we have at Basingstoke."
The team is captained by Michelle Kimber and leading the scoring charts for the new Champions were Katie Randell and Lindsey Beverley, with 22 and 18 goals respectively.
"With a squad of 14 players (plus several injured) it has taken a huge effort from everyone involved to achieve what we have," added Quilter. "We are now concentrating on adding to our squad for next season."
