A football team in Stevenage will be looking to hit the ground running in the new season after a fabulous year last time out.
Stevenage Starlets U14 Navy's won the Herts Girls' Football Partnership League Division One title, reward for a unbeaten programme.
Since winning the league the girls have since added the six-a-side titles at Ruislip Rangers and Wormley Rovers.
Manager Craig Harrington-Pike said: "We were competing with much more established teams that have been together since the ages of seven and eight but what makes me happiest is we are a team that believes in equal playing time for all & lots of positional rotation.
"We proved this year that if you give all girls the chance, they can thrive.
"Starlets is a club built on strong values and the girls' success is a consequence of hard work, determination and team spirit, not a win at all costs mentality."
It wasn't the only celebrations at the club as Starlets held a fun day to mark their fifth birthday.
