The team was set up by the men's club and Josh Donoghue was appointed as manager, with Phil Sheridan as his assistant and Stacie Morrissey is the club's Women's and Girls' Academy Coordinator.
The team joined Division Two of the Somerset County Women's League and kicked off with a 13-0 win over Hamilton in the opening game. Weston stayed amongst the leading sides throughout the season an another outstanding performance from the team saw them win their final match 13-1 against Ilminster Town Res, which gave them the result they needed to finish top of the table.
"I am delighted with the effort and performance the team have put in this season," Stacie Morrissey told Women's Soccer Scene. "When setting up the team last year and interviewing for managers, I was very hopeful with the management we put in place that we would do well this season. Then we advertised for players and within the first couple of months together, I wasn't just hopeful, I was then confident we would go far with in the league, and not only because we have some great talented players but as a team, everyone connected so well and it's like one big family - so this result beats any hopes I had for the first season, because I could not be more proud of anyone involved or playing for the team and I couldn't be more happy with the team we have in place.
"Also, I would just like to personally say a massive congratulations to everyone on the team because without the commitment, effort and hard work we couldn't have got here."
The whole squad and management have played an important role in the Seagulls Ladies' success, as well as the commitment, effort and the bond of the team.
"Throughout the season, every player has performed to the best of their ability and given everything on and off the pitch in matches and training," said Josh Donoghue. "For a debut season, this is a great achievement and I give all the credit to the hard work, determination and persistence of all the players. We are more than a team on the pitch - we are also a great team off it, I think this is one of the many reasons why this season has been such a success.
"As the manager it is hard to put into words how proud and humbled I am to be able to take charge of this team each week, it has been a great honour and achievement this season for myself and i look forward for many more successful seasons to come."
The team also included the top three goalscorers in the league - Ellie Roberts, with a whopping 55 goals, Lucy Mager with 22 and Ellie Orritt who netted 17 times, the team absolutely smashed the overall goals with a massive 118 goals for the season. Dionne Crisp started off in the captain's role, with Jasmine Baker taking over the armband after injury ruled her out for the rest of the season.
