2015 was the first time the Ladies team had been included in the club presentation night in 9 years and with a lot to celebrate it was going to be a good night. Being crowned League Champions in March the Ladies Team had the league winners shield for all to view on the night just showcasing the success of the side this season.
After a successful first season in charge of the Ladies Team, manager Leah Ambridge said; ‘I am extremely proud of all of my players. Everyone has played there socks off for 90 mins every week and done the team, and the club, very proud. It wasn’t easy taking over a side who had the same manager for over 12 years but they adapted well to my style of football and always gave it their all at training and match days.’
‘Winning the league by 12 points just shows what a fantastic team we have and how hard everyone has worked this season. Not losing any games in the league is a phenomenal achievement for any side, our cup runs have been brilliant getting to the quarter final in one cup and reaching the final in another. The 17th May will be a tough day but one which everyone will be up for, we have worked very hard all season and winning the Russell Cup would be the icing on the cake.’
