After losing their first game in the Major League to The Beaks, Green Routes FC went on a 6 game winning run to become the Major League winners in their debut season and qualify for the Oxford Premiership.
Green Routes then went on to become Premiership champions ahead of The Yellows on goal difference which was mainly down to their fantastic defence after only conceding 6 goals.

Brian Kirk, the Charity Football League Coordinator, presented Green Routes with the trophies which captain Jim Benwell lofted high to spark jubilant scenes among the reunited players.
