Brighouse Town, of the FA Women's National League Division One North, have completed a remarkable 2019.
The West Yorkshire side have completed the incredible feat of remaining unbeaten in open play in all competitions with the exception of a penalty shoot-out defeat to Derby County.
After 33 games, Town have won 23 and drawn 10, scoring an impressive 103 goals and only conceding 25 along the way.
Brighouse finished last season by lifting the West Riding County Cup for the first time in their short history after beating Guiseley 3-2 in the Final and finishing as runners-up behind Burnley FC Women in the league.
That form has carried on in to the new season which has seen the team start strongly in the league and cups, reaching the Third Round of the Women's FA Cup and the last sixteen of the County Cup. They currently lie in third place in the league, behind leaders Barnsley and Leeds Utd, but with games in hand on both of them.
Town's only blemish came in a League Cup penalty shootout defeat to National League Northern Premier Division side Derby County after a 1-1 draw in extra time.
Manager Rob Mitchell has an impressive overall record with the club after 200 games in charge also, having won 144 and only suffering defeat on 30 occasions in all competitions over a seven year spell.
"The prime objective now is to try and achieve promotion, but with only one side going up from division one in a highly competitive league, that task has proven a little trickier to overcome, finishing second in the previous two seasons," Rob Mitchell told Women's Soccer Scene.
