The first team recently sewed up the Division One South title in the North West Women's League at the first attempt, after having won promotion at the end of last season.
Although they have had to catch up games throughout the campaign, they have gone through the season unbeaten having won seventeen matches and drawn the other, finishing top by a comfortable margin of twelve points.
The first team is managed Paul Caddick, with Shauna Edmondson as captain and leading goalscorer is Rachael Dunlop who has scored 31 goals in 22 games this season so far.
"Significant contributions would be hard to narrow down without listing every player," says secretary Rob McKay, "but Chloe Spencer has scored 15 goals in 19 appearances from midfield, whilst defender Katy Wilman has been influential in us keeping 13 clean sheets from 29 games to date.
"Two significant games of the season were at home to Altrincham in October and Liverpool Feds Reserves away on November 18th. Altrincham visited our ground as league leaders having only dropped three points at that point; a tight game in front of a crowd of over 100 ensued with Vicky Lomas snatching three points with a stoppage time winner. Liverpool Feds replaced them and three weeks later we visited their Jericho Lane home; it was 0-0 at half time but in the second half we shifted a gear winning 6-1 with a hat-trick from Rachael Dunlop, a Chloe Spencer brace and another goal from Elizabeth Livesey."
The Development squad, managed by Nathan Soulby, with Leanne Joyce as captain and Anna Carson-Parker as leading goalscorer, with 19 goals from 16 games.
"Other key contributions include Beth Powney, who signed on late in the season and saved a penalty at 2-1 in a 'title decider' against Tameside United and Leanne Higham, who scored a hat-trick including a 40-yard chip to win the league against Swinton in the final match of the season (we won 4-0). The Devs won their last seven straight league games to over turn a five point deficit and win the league ahead of Tameside United."
