The first team have been crowned Champions of the Eastern Region Women's Football League Division One North, with the team having an unbeaten league season, winning seventeen matches and drawing one.
This is the highest league position the team has achieved and is a massive achievement for the club. Earlier in the season, the ladies also reached the First Round Proper of the SSE Women's FA Cup, going one step further than the previous year, eventually losing out 3-2 to Enfield Town from the FA Women's Premier League.
Having beaten higher league opposition Acle United in last season's County Cup semi final, Wymondham faced them again this season, but this time in the Final. Wymondham again came out on top with a 3-2 victory, courtesy of goals from Laura Nicholls, Mollie O'Callaghan and Chelsea Clarke. This is the first time the team have lifted the County Cup and is a fantastic achievement for the club.
Overall, Wymondham have scored 155 goals in 31 games, conceding just 26 in all competitions with Laura Nicholls (42), Hannah Waters (24) and Mollie O'Callaghan (21) the team's top goalscorers.
Speaking about the season, manager Alex Guy told Women's Soccer Scene: "It has been an incredible season. Having finished third in the league last year and reached the County Cup but failing to lift the trophy, this gave the squad more determination and motivation then ever.
"To not only win the league, but to also be undefeated is a great achievement and to beat higher league opposition in the County Cup is testament to the team's ability. It means a great deal to me to lift the League Trophy and County Cup with my local team and we are very much enjoying the moment and looking forward to the challenge of next season."
Meanwhile, the Reserves won promotion last season to the Norfolk Women's & Girls Football League Division 1 and have had a strong season, currently sitting fourth in the table with only two games to go. They have also progressed well in the League Plate competition, reaching the semi finals and facing league leaders Sprowston. The result was 1-1 after extra time and Sprowston progressed to the final, beating Wymondham on penalties.
The club is also proud to be supporting an SSE Wildcats Centre in Wymondham, which has been set up as a national incentive to increase participation of 5-11 year old girls in football. Sessions are being held at Ketts Park in Wymondham from 6-7pm. To register your interest, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
