The first team finished their first season in the London & South East League as runners-up and winners of the League Cup. They ended up in second place to a powerful Crawley Wasps side, who have gone on to demonstrate their strength at the level above by winning every match they have played so far.
2018 also saw the first team enter the SSE Women's FA Cup, where we reached the Second Round Qualifying before narrowly losing 1-0 to FAWNL side AFC Wimbledon in the final minutes of extra time.
Although they have not quite matches the heights of last season so far in the league this time around, they signed off the year with a fine result, winning 2-1 against previously unbeaten league leaders Kent Football Utd. This leaves them in fourth place going into the New Year, five points off the pace and a good run of form could yet see them get into the title battle.
The club's success has not solely been confined to the first team though, as the Reserve team also had a great year. The reserves managed to win silverware for the first time with a double cup success, winning both the Capital Cup and the GLWFL Trophy. They also finished runners-up and won promotion to Division One of the Greater London League, where they are currently in mid-table.
"2018 has been an outstanding year for the club, achieving what we have with our limited resources is testament to the hard work put in by everyone from the players, coaches, and committee," coach Gavin Murphy told Women's Soccer Scene.
"We are looking forward to 2019 - it will prove to be a challenging year because standards have been raised but we have the people to exceed those standards."
