We had a tough pre-season with a lot of changes but the attitudes of the players and the want to play football has allowed us to succeed. We are a team - from managers, to players, to parents and volunteers - our ethos is to get on that pitch, play good football and enjoy it. With this; we have had some great results. It really makes all the hard work worthwhile.”
Daniel Carthew - Budleigh Salterton Ladies Manager: “It has taken a lot of hard work to get here which started back in July during pre-season; we worked a lot on fitness which has helped us throughout the season.
