Formed in 1999, the Women’s Team of the Isthmian Football League has made its mark on the football world, having finished as runners up in the 1st and 2nd divisions of the Eastern Region Women’s League in 2002/03. The team also cruised through their first season in the Regional Premier Division, finishing fourth overall, with 3 more fourth place finishes since. Proud winners of the Eastern Region Knockout Plate in 2001/02, the Isthmian Women’s League were also the Eastern Region’s annual 5-a-side tourney champions, both in April and 2002, and June of the following year.
In the 2005/06 they missed winning the League Cup final by one goal (on the odd side of 7) in a nail-biting show against the Norwich City Canaries. They sat at the top of the logs for much of the 2009/10 season, but lost steam toward the end of the season, however they did reach round two Proper of the Women’s FA Cup.
Sadly, their 2010/11 season got off to a dodgy start, with many long-standing players making moves to other clubs, and the resulting chaos secured the team a bottom of the log standing. It was temporary though, as the 2011/12 season showed a massive improvement; they secured second place in the 1st South division overall.
The team has seen its share of ups and downs. Last Christmas, they look set to top the league, but we shaken off course by the untimely death of their manager, Steve Brown (appointed in the 2015/16 season with much success), on New Years Day. The team members do seem to have recovered from this upset, and have been not only promoted to the Premier Women’s League after having won the League Championship title, but have won the League Cup against Cambridge with a 5-1 win at the finale.
