Ascot United’s Phoenix squad continue their unbeaten run after registering their thirtieth win in the Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League as they ply their trade in Division One.
The inception of the team came in the 2019/20 season when they entered Division Three East of the TVCWFL finishing a respectable eighth of ten before the season was curtailed due to the pandemic. Courtney Gibbons securing top goalscorer having netted 13 goals in 18 appearances.
The 2020/21 season beckoned and so the unbeaten run began. The team finished third in the table this season having been pipped to first place by Penn & Tylers Green and fellow Berkshire side Slough Town assuming second spot. Ascot registered eleven wins with their last defeat coming against Abbey Rangers, who finished in the place below them, who they lost 3-1 away to on the 13th of December 2020. They won their final eight games of the season including beating Slough Town in a 6-2 thriller.
A real buzz began early in the 2021/22 season as Clodagh Farrell kicked off the ‘Golden Boot’ race between herself and Freya Johnson, going toe to toe with one another for the eighteen games played. The squad dropped zero points for the entirety, registering a maximum of 54 points and scoring just shy of 100 goals with 92 between the squad, of which Clodagh and Freya were responsible for 53.
And the run marches on into the current 2022/23 season having played four games and won all of those with 23 goals in the bank already. The most recent win against Haddenham Ladies means they’ve secured thirty wins, which is confirmed as a league record since it’s beginnings fifteen years ago.
