In the 15-16 season Margate Ladies were joined by Jim Cornish as Margate Ladies Team Manager and in his first season finished fouth and bagged the top two league goal scorers with Kara Richardson scoring an impressive 35 goals in 20 appearances and Beth Cooper scoring 20 goals in 14 appearances.
Margate Ladies finished worthy runners up in the 16-17 season, five points behind Maidstone Ladies. That season the ladies record was played 14 games in the league, they won 11 and lost 3. For the first time in their history the Bluebirds made a Semi Final and a Quarter Final all in one season.
In the summer break of 2018, the club parted ways with Cornish and started a new chapter with a new manager.
Evan Paris picked up the reins and marked his first game with a double header against Gillingham Ladies at Hartsdown Park.
This season, the aim is for Bluebirds home games to be played at Hartsdown Park, where Season Ticket Holders can support their women's team for free.
The team is actively seeking players to develop the squad in the League and to push for further promotion up the league pyramid.
