Table-topping United won promotion to the SIL Division One for the first time in their 100-year history, losing to just one team in the league all season.

Although the season was littered with some exceptional performances from individual, Woolverstone chairman hailed the efforts of the whole club, including backroom staff and supporters.

He said: "It has been a massive team effort on and off the pitch and I want to thank everyone involved."
