In the coming weeks, they would continue to prove their doubters wrong, picking up win after win before eventually becoming champions with two games left of the season.

SB Frankfort, coached by James Brown-Tunnell, have so far picked up 13 wins out of 16, recording draws in the other three in an unprecedented unbeaten campaign.

And the boss has praised the girls for proving they deserve to play against boys on a weekly basis:

"This is a fantastic achievement for the whole squad. Everyone has played their part this season." Tunnell told Plymouth Live.

"This has been four years in the making and I couldn't be happier. The main aim by joining the boys league was for the girls to be challenged, so it's amazing to end up league winners.

"There may have been doubters, but the girls have proved they deserve to play against boys on a weekly basis.

"We have two league games left and we will approach them the same way. Our aim is to stay undefeated and then move on to the league cup final on the 12th May.

"Thanks to all the parents and my wife Gemma for their support, it's a team effort from everyone."

SB Frankfort assistant coach John Preston also hailed the squad for proving the doubters wrong:

"It has been a great season and we have had great games against some fantastic teams who have praised the girls both on and off the pitch." he said.

"We have been told many times that the girls can't, but this proves ours girls definitely CAN!"

It is encouraging to see the women's game evolving day by day.

A well deserved title win, SB Frankfort.
