AFC Bournemouth have followed up last season's title success by being crowned Champions of the Hampshire County Women's League Division Two.
The Cherries lifted the title after a close battle during the season with local rivals Bournemouth Sports and Gosport Borough, who ended up in third place. They were confirmed as Champions after beating QK Southampton 4-1 in their penultimate game of the season.
"The most important result was away at Gosport, where the ladies won 5-3," manager Vince Taylor told Women's Soccer Scene. "It was the best team effort of the season and, as the ladies had already lost 4-2 to Gosport, the result proved a springboard for the rest of the season.
"The best performance came in the game against Bursledon away, where we won 10-1. It was an awesome display of passing and movement."
Taylor was full of praise for his squad, including those who had been the leading scorers. "Goals have come from Justine Mosley (29), Gill Reynolds (20) and Paula Taylor (18); they are also the top three goalscorers in the league," he said.
"Off the pitch, Rachel Taylor, Jon Flynn and Raymond Payne have been instrumental in us winning the league and I don't think I could have done it without their support.
"On the pitch, always underestimated in my opinion, is the defence; if you don't concede goals you can't lose games. The back four of Jess Cook, Charlie Hall, Kate Flynn and captain Nicola Taylor have been ever present. A new midfield of Justine Mosley, Sammie Humphries and Danni Ormensher have worked really hard to protect the back four.
"In fact, it's hard not to pick anyone that hasn't done the job that was asked of them. Alisha Hogg stepped up to replaced the injured Leah Giles in goal and never put a foot wrong. Zoe Barton and Zoe Cranmer looked calm in midfield when asked to play there and have been great in raising team spirits when needed.
"Chloe Newton scored four in one game, and Sam Mosley, who has been injured for the whole season, has done a great job writing the match reports."
