Kit Graham hailed the Charlton women’s team’s treble-winning season as “amazing”, and believes there will be more to come from her side in 2015/16.

The Addicks secured their third trophy of the season on Wednesday evening, beating West Ham United 5-0 in the Capital Cup final at Harrow Borough FC.

That victory followed successes in the Ryman Cup and FA Women’s Premier League (FAWPL) Cup, where they defeated Tottenham Hotspur after extra time and Sheffield Fc on penalties respectively.

To cap of an excellent season, Charlton’s FA Cup quarter final penalty shootout defeat to Everton is their only reverse in 20 matches in 2015.

The only possible disappointment to come from this campaign is the fact that, with two games of the season remaining, they are no longer in the hunt for promotion to the FA Women’s Super League.

But Graham, who has netted an incredible 51 goals this season, believes her team can make that leap next year.

“[It was] gutting that we didn’t get further in the league, obviously,” she said, “but there’s not much you can do; just look forward to next season.

“I think we’ve come so far this season and we’ve just proven how good we are recently. It’s a good feeling to come away with three cups, unbeaten in the second half of the season. Spirits are high.

“We knew we owed [West Ham] from the 0-0 draw [in the league last month]. I think we proved how good of a team we are, how strong we are and how well we work together.

“I think if we all stick together and move on together, which I think we will, there’s no reason why we can’t get that Super League spot next year.”

Graham, at just 19 years of age, has had a breakout season for Charlton, having scored, as aforementioned, 51 goals from just 36 appearances.

Those goals helped her become the Addicks’ all-time leading scorer, with 77 from 106 matches thus far – and she also joined Charlton’s 100 appearance club.

The youngster, modest as ever, admitted she has been delighted with her form this term, having played the whole campaign as a striker for the first time in her fledgling career.

“I don’t know where [the goals] have all come from!” she added. “Last season I got 15 goals. I think it must be my boots – my new boots!

“Think [playing alongside] Gemma [Shepherd] has helped me a lot, her experience (I’m not calling her old!) has helped me.

“I prefer playing as the top player because I’m not the fastest so I can hold the ball up and let her run onto it. I’m just grateful to have bagged myself as many goals as I have.”
