After an open start to the season, the battle for the title eventually developed into a two horse race and it was Worcester who finally beat off the challenge of rivals Redditch Utd, going on to finish top of the table with an unbeaten record.
"We have worked hard for promotion as a football club and are naturally delighted going undefeated to win the league," Ryan O'Connor told Women's Soccer Scene.
"We actually put together a winning run of 18 straight wins in a row in all competitions that started last season in April with an 8-0 win over Droitwich.
"This run also included winning a double of the Worcestershire FA County Cup and the West Midlands Division One South League Cup, and it stretched until 18th December when we finally lost in the West Midlands Division One South Cup competition, 3-2 to Redditch.
"First game of this season, we beat Redditch 1-0 which proved a key win for us in the long term as Redditch ended up as runners-up. Our best performance of the season was probably against Coventry Development when we played on a real quagmire of a pitch on a rainy day and produced arguably the best display of amateur football I have ever witnessed, Michelle Davis giving a player of the match performance.
"We then beat title contenders Droitwich home and away with some real battling performances."
Worcester's success was an all round team effort with contributions all over the park. "We have conceded just nine goals in 16 league games this season, which was six less than runners-up Redditch. We have also scored 43 goals and our top scorer was Lucy Edwards with 15 league goals.
"We won the West Midlands Division 1 South League title undefeated and gained promotion to the West Midlands League Premier Division. This means that within one year, we won all three cups available to us."
