“Our aim before the season started was to get to the cup final and finish in the top three in the Premier Division,” he said.
“We have already bettered that aim by taking the League Cup and being assured of finishing in the top two in the league.”
“We have had a steep learning curve this season. Being a young team we all made mistakes early on, but learned from them and we are unbeaten in the league in 2008
and have just won a major trophy which is a tribute to the hard work put in by the players and coaches,” Parke added.
The following trophies were presented to the ladies' team: Top goalscorer, Nicola Bray; Best attitude, Nikki Wigg; Players' player of the year, Kelly Gray; Supporters' Player of the year, Emily Coates; Manager's player of the season, Logan Shepherd; Coaches' Player of the season, Nicola Bray.
Men's first team manager Ross Potter, who is stepping down from the post, reported on a mixed season that had seen the team finish in sixth position in the Norwich Sunday League Premier Division after a fine start that brought five consecutive victories.
This was followed by a poor mid season and an end flourish as team re-building began to take shape.
“There is an excellent opportunity for a new manager to re-build the team and I'm confident that the club as a whole will be going places,” Potter said.
