Hampton & Richmond Borough Ladies FC manager Leah Ambridge has only been Beavers’ boss for a season and already has a trophy in her back pocket.

But she reckons her side’s Greater London Women's Football League Division Two South title triumph on Sunday was 12 years in the making and now they want more.

“We are looking to finish this season unbeaten and I think we can push again next year, too,” said the former QPR, Fulham and Chelsea semi-professional.

“We all want to push on. The Women’s Super League is the top level, but I think in three yeasrs we can be pushing towards step four.”

Hampton won the title with two games remaining thanks to a 1-0 win over second-placed Chobham Burymead on Sunday.

They will move up to step seven in the women’s football pyramid, having been unbeaten in the league this term and have won 14 of their 16 games to date.

Add to that a 41-goal partnership between strikers Kate Foster and Louise Clarke and it is hard to argue with Ambridge’s ambition.

“We want to finish the season unbeaten and we have two cup quarter finals to look forward to as well,” added 31-year-old Ambridge, who is in the process of completing her UEFA B coaching licence.

“There is no reason why this team cannot compete at the next level.”

“They are still young. Most of them have been playing for the club since it was formed 12 years ago so this will do a huge amount for our club.

“The girls are still looking through the photos taken at the weekend and re-living the dream.

“Most of them have never won a league before and some have not done something like this since they were 15-years-old. It has been special.”

Hampton have time to get over the celebrations as their next game is at Camden Town on March 29.
