Virginia Water won the Hellenic League Division 1 East at the first attempt last season after joining the league from the Surrey Elite League.

They won 18 of their 24 games and scored 65 goals in the process and move up to the Premier Division due to their first place finish and ground share with Windsor at Stag Meadow.

The majority of the clubs league goals last season came from Adam McNamara (15) and Josh Guichard (11).
