After winning the Pirate FM Cornwall Women' s League last season, the team had a bit of a rebuild at the start of this season with a couple from last year going away, three players pregnant and retirement including their long standing captain and 'keeper. This led to joint captains Jodie Hood and Jenna Borlase being newly voted in by the team this season and really rising to the role, both on and off the pitch.
The first match of the season was a bit of a low as the rebuilt squad struggled against Helston Ladies losing their only league fixture of the season!
Thereafter the team performed well and consistently raised a team from an enthusiastic, committed squad and after scoring fifteen times in their second match of the season against St Breward, they went on to win the remaining 19 league fixtures to keep hold of the league title.
St Agnes were confirmed as Champions after winning their penultimate game 7-3 against Penryn, before their final match of the season ended in a 3-1 victory away to runners-up Mousehole, who were their main title rivals throughout the campaign, meaning that they ended up with a margin of seven points.
Overall, it was a positive season for ladies football in general in Cornwall with less games cancelled through teams not being able to raise a squad than in previous years.
Top goalscorer for St Agnes was Laura-Beth Medcalf, with 26 goals to her name, closely followed by Lexi Riley on 23 who, due to a shoulder injury, only actually played ten fixtures!
The squad is already planning for pre-season with players deciding as a squad how they want to play in the 2018-19 season.
