After winning the Greater London Women's League Division Two North title last season, they were promoted into Division One and despite being in a strong league which includes the likes of Crystal Palace Development, Islington Borough and Dulwich Hamlet reserves amongst others, Walton have won the league with three matches still to play, and with an unbeaten record before losing to Islington in their first match after being crowned as Champions.
Walton Casuals Ladies FC are part of the main club, whose men's team play in Premier Division South of the Bet Victor Southern League, with former West Ham and Blackburn defender Tony Gale as their Chairman. They are managed by Chris Barker, who is delighted with the team's success and stated that this has always been his focus and priority, to push through the ladies' football tier.
"We are above our targets that we set and have a very young and talented squad," he told Women's Soccer Scene. "We have one of the best facilities in the country, which is a huge asset to have. Being a first team we qualify and play in the famous Women's FA Cup which is another great experience for all players.
"Without doubt we are one of the youngest senior first teams in the country. Emily Bernard, our brilliant captain, is a great leader for all the girls and one of our 16-year-olds, Molly Jones, opened her senior goalscoring account with a fantastic FA Cup debut winner, when we beat Banbury United 2-1.
"Because of our success, we are now forming younger teams of all ages called Walton Casuals Girls FC and we have teams already to start the 2020 season."
For the first half of the season, it was a two horse race at the top of Division One between Walton Casuals and Crystal Palace Development. Walton won 5-2 when the teams met in October and the return meeting in January finished level at 1-1 but matters were firmly in Walton's hands from that point and they made sure of the title with three matches to spare, with a 6-2 victory over Regents Park Rangers. Another important result during the course of the season was a 5-0 win against Islington Borough in November.
Molly Jones has built on her successful debut to be leading scorer with 14 to her name, whilst Rebecca E Price and Megan Saunders have each scored 12 times.
