Newhaven carried off the Sussex County Women's League title at the first attempt, having won all 18 matches, and finished with a comfortable margin of eight points despite a spirited challenge from runners-up Saltdean Utd.
They also won the Sussex FA Women's Challenge Trophy, beating Burgess Hill Ladies 5-3 in the Final, and crowned their successful season as they completed the ‘treble' with a 3-2 victory over Saltdean in the League Cup Final.
The first match of the season ended in an 18-0 victory over Pagham, the first of three occasions in which they hit double figures. In March and April they went on a run of five successive clean sheets which was only broken in the last match of the season, a 2-1 win against Saltdean.
"We are a new team only formed last summer and are made up of ladies from a team named Seahaven Ladies from a few years ago, and the girls who have moved up from Newhaven Girls Under-16s and Under-18s from last season," says Andy Cook, who is joint manager along with Alex Ladd.
"We have picked up a few other signings along the way who have given us a bit of experience.
"Every player has been absolutely fantastic but there must be special mention to our striker Chloe Winchester, who scored 52 goals this season in all competitions.
"Our captain Ellie Coade has been absolutely brilliant in centre midfield and with the likes of Georgia Ungoed, Lauren Smith and Paige Ripley playing behind Winchester, we have created and scored over 130 goals. Defensively, we have also been fantastic with Charlotte Lloyd at the heart of the defence.
"Our matches against Saltdean have stood out as the closest and toughest and have been a great spectacle for ladies football in Sussex."
