Having had a positive 2014-15 season, the ladies 1s set out in 2015/16 under the leadership of captain Alex Robinson and coach Jonty Robinson for a victorious season. With particularly stunning performances in their last 2 games of the season, the ladies were victorious against unbeaten side Surbiton as well as the always dangerous Reading, pushing themselves 2 points clear of both Horsham and Barnes. With 63 goals scored this season, and promotion achieved, the ladies go up to National League. It is also a credit to Southgate junior section that 8 of the current ladies 1s squad are under 18, with another 5 adults having been coached through the junior side at the club. Thanks to the hard work of our coaching team, TJ and Liz, we know that the ladies will continue to dominate.
