This has undoubtedly been the most successful season in Crawley Wasps' 28-year history - winning the FA Women's National League Division One South East title by a margin of eleven points, reaching the FA Women's National League Cup Final in their first season at that level (losing 3-0 to Blackburn Rovers) and hosting Arsenal in front of 1,550 people in the Fourth Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup, going down by a very respectable four goals to the FA WSL Champions.
Not only that, but the reserves and Under-18s also won their respective league titles and the club continues to attract not only more players for their youth teams, but also additional sponsor partners, too.
Wasps came into the season, newly promoted into the FA Women's National League Division One South East, after dominating the London & South East Regional League the previous year. Incredibly, they were to stretch their unbeaten league run to two years (March 2017 to March 2019) and 32 matches, ending only when Billericay Town netted a winning penalty in a game played at Crawley Town's People's Pension Stadium.
Wasps won their first 19 matches in all competitions this season, including beating Coventry United, Chichester City, Oxford United and Plymouth Argyle from the league above - a positive sign ahead of next season when they will compete in the Southern Premier Division.
Overall, they scored 135 goals in 37 games in all competitions (averaging 3.65 per game) and conceded just 27 - four of those to Arsenal and three to Blackburn.
Guiding Wasps through an immensely successful season has been manager Paul Walker whilst former England Under-23 international Naomi Cole is captain, as well as top scorer in the league. Leading scorer in all competitions is Kemina Webber, with 20 goals to her name.
