Having competed locally from the age of seven and worked their way through to Under-16 level, the club's oldest female team wanted to continue playing after completing their final Under-16 season where they had won the County Cup and League Cup double.
The ladies entered the Cumbria nine-a-side league last summer as a taster to women's football. They did really well through the summer season and wanted to continue on playing through the winter, so entered League One of the Lancashire County Women's League.
"Although this often meant 200+ miles round trips to away games, we had a really enjoyable season which culminated in being crowned champions in our first season of open age eleven-a-side football," coach Paul Mason told Women's Soccer Scene.
"This young, talented and hugely committed team also went through to the Northern Final of the FA People's Cup."
Easter brought another first as Stanwix embarked on their first tournament, where they competed in the Costa Duarada Cup in Spain.
"It was a fantastic experience for the girls, playing in stadiums in front of passionate local support against top class opposition," added Mason. "The girls managed to reach the final but went down 2-0 in a closely fought final against a local Spanish team."
Paul Mason and Derek Elliot are the team's coaches, the captain is Rebecca Adam and leading goalscorer is Bea Barber, who also finished as the league's top scorer. There are too many other players to mention that played a key role on and off the pitch.
Those key roles led to Stanwix finishing top of League One with nine victories in their ten league matches, and winning the league by a margin of five points.
