Manager Scott Rogers has expressed his delight after Blackburn Rovers were crowned reserve league Champions.
Rovers secured the Midlands/North Division One title thanks to an impressive record of 15 wins from their 21 games.
Rogers said: "This has been a very successful season for the club and I'm very proud of my players. It shows that we are attracting some of the best young players in the North West, as the average age of our team was just 17.
"The aim now is to make the squad even better for next season, in order to build on what we have achieved. It is vital that we keep moving forward to attract more talented young players to the club."
Rogers admits that there have been many highlights throughout the season - not least the progression of a number of players to the first team fold.
"I think our two best results were taking four points off Everton, who set the benchmark in women's football. So for our young players to be competing with them is a massive plus.
"The turning point in the campaign probably came at home to Sunderland. We were being outplayed and outfought, yet Sophie Lynch scored a 30-yard screamer from out of nowhere to secure the points.
"The major highpoint would have to be overcoming Preston's entire first team 2-0 to win the league. We were up against it that day, but my players stuck to the task and our class shone through in the end.
"That said, winning the league isn't everything to me, as I have to produce players who are capable of making the step up to the first team. I think that the Lancashire Cup Final proved that we are doing the right things, because six of my players were involved in that game.
"I must give a special mention to Hannah Forster, our captain, who has started the last five games for first team and not looked out of place, and our top goalscorer Nic Foster, who has also been involved with the senior side in recent weeks."
