Reading Royals Under-16 retained the Surrey County Girls League Premier Division title on Sunday after securing a point in a 3-3 draw with Fleet Town Girls at Sandhurst Town FC.
Striker Katie Smith bagged two goals and Natalie Barnes added the third.
This game marked the end of a successful five year tenure for some of the squad which has won no less that five league titles and an International tournament in Denmark. Some of the players who have provided this success will be forming a part of the new look Royals first team who will compete in the South West Combination next season, following the club's relegation from the Premier League Southern Division.
The senior ladies team has suffered a torrid time this season following the loss of their entire first team squad but is aiming to bounce back next year. Under-16 team coach Andrew Davis explained: "The success and development of our youth team will be vital for the forthcoming season. At least four of our youth squad has experienced ladies football in the second tier during this season, so hopefully that will leave them in good stead for our South West Combination campaign.
"It will be a slow rebuilding process for our first team but, with hard work, we can get there and hopefully we will attract some players of the required quality along the way.
"We have trials planned for both our youth and senior squads in early June, followed by a tough pre-season programme prior to the star of the new campaign in August."
After two seasons at Sandhurst Town FC, the Royals are moving back to Reading Town FC and the youth will retain its home base at Palmer Park Stadium in Reading. Anybody wishing to find out more about this progressive club can visit www.rrlfc.com or contact Andrew Davis on (07843) 248206.
