Footballers from the Hastings have collected the premiers crown and booked their tickets for finals in the Herald Women's Premier League.
The Mid Coast FC team of under 14s girls and three-time premiership coach Brenton Doyle are on their way to a semi-final in Newcastle this weekend, after dominating the 2020 season.
Mid Coast crushed Broadmeadow Magic FC (10-0) to cap off the official season on September 27, last weekend.
Coach Brenton Doyle said a win in the finals would be great, but he prefers seeing the players grow as players and improve as people.
"It's pretty exciting to see our new girls bond and improve. They'll give you that extra effort if you're with them and believe in them," Doyle said.
"It's about letting the girls know I believe in them and them believing in themselves. They are all coachable kids and at this level they are all competitive.
"You're cheering them on really in the game that they love. You'll often find the better players help the younger ones who come through, so they can get better as a team.
"They're all there because they love the game."
Doyle said there is already indications that the teams success will lead to greater opportunities.
"We have a pretty good group this year and I know the Junior Matilda's coaching staff have been watching all the girls," he said.
"I know a few of them have been earmarked to be invited to a camp. If they want to go further then they have to deal with the pressure of being under the spotlight, but it's a good opportunity for them."
Mid Coast are on the top of the ladder this season with 11 wins and three draws. They are ahead of Merewether United on 11 wins, Newcastle Olympic on nine wins and Adamstown Rosebud on seven.
Mid Coast will face Merewether United at Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility at 9am on Sunday, October 4.
