2016-17 is the third successive season in which Beighton Magpies have lifted silverware with the Sheffield & Hallamshire Women's County Football League Division One title secured last month, to add to the Krukowski Cup last season and the Division Three title in 2014-15.
In the league, Beighton reeled off ten straight wins (11 if a subsequently expunged victory over Staveley Miners Welfare (who sadly folded) is included) in a feature on their season. Last Sunday's 1-1 draw at Dronfield Town saw Beighton drop points for the first time, albeit after the title had already been secured.
Such has been their free scoring form this season, Beighton need only to score in their one remaining league game in the return against Dronfield to reach 64 goals and that figure is double the next highest (by Huddersfield Town Academy) in the division. As well as being potent in attack, they are also near impregnable in defence as six clean sheets and just five goals against (all singles) testifies.
The pattern for the season was very much weaved in the opening game, winning 4-1 at last season's champions Sheffield Wednesday Reserves, who stand in Beighton's way of a place in this season's Krukowski Cup final.
Beighton have twice hit double figures, 13-0 against Huddersfield and 12-0 against Dinnington Town, with the goals very much spread throughout the team in both games.
Manager Paul Roberts has a strong squad at his disposal with several players having featured at FA Women's Premier League level, so their success is not unexpected. Charlotte Spencer, previously at Rotherham, has proved a sound addition in defence, while others whose CV includes FAWPL experience are goalkeeper Georgia Ward, Maria Burns, Rachel Charles and Laura Elsworth.
Kerry Armstrong, Ashton Crouch, plus twins Rachel and Sam Hale have all got experience from above County League level.
Hat-trick scorers include Charles and Smith (both of whom are into double figures in the scoring charts), plus Billie Gordon and Carly Rowlands.
