Since breaking away from Daventry Drayton Grange, Daventry Town Ladies have secured the Northants County League Division One Championship at the first attempt.
Ambitious Northamptonshire Football Club Daventry Town, whose male non-league counterparts having conquered the United Counties First Division, will also be celebrating promoted at the end of the season.
At one point it looked like Daventry Town FC could be confirmed too the history books after a fire destroyed the main stand and changing rooms at their Edderstubbs headquarters but with the help of a good committee, a great Chairman and sound financial backing the future looks bright for a club who at one point looked doomed.
'Lady Luckett' has been one key to Daventry's success this season in the form of striker Kerry Luckett, not only the club's but the league's leading goalscorer with some 44 goals in a campaign which has seen Daventry beaten just once in 16 league outings, having amassed 71 goals while only conceding 26.
With the backing of Daventry Town Chairman Iain Humphreys, who is fully supportive of his women's team and recently watched them beat Raunds Town 4-1 in the semi finals of the League Cup 4-1 at Communications Park - courtesy of Kerry Luckett's double strike and goals from Natasha Dowd and Jess Holley. The Chairman, along with Town ladies, will be hoping it is a season of double celebrations when they appear in the League Cup Final at the end of the season, but before then they will have the opportunity of a dress rehearsal against fellow finalists Kingsthorpe at Compton Park on April 20th.
Now eligible for promotion into the East Midlands League for the 2008-09 season, high grade football will be a big test for a team who, under the guidance of Ben Jones, have won the league title at their first attempt and while Kerry Luckett may be the Clubs leading scorer, she has been supported in the goals department this season by Megan Jones, Natasha Dowd and Jess Holley whose scoring record nears the double figure mark of ten goals each.
