TNS Ladies have returned in triumph from France after winning the Northern Paris Cup.
They beat off competition from six of the host nation's teams and one Hungarian side to triumph in the competition at the weekend.
Leading scorer Tammy Evans led the way to goal as the ladies got their hands on the silverware.
A thrilling shootout saw them beat ACBB 4-2 on penalties in the first v second final after topping the league.
Team boss John Lloyd said: "It's a brilliant achievement to go to a foreign country and win a tournament like this.
"We didn't know what to expect from the opposition but although we won all of our games it was very close and competitive.
"All of the girls played extremely well and they all deserve great credit."
TNS scored a total of 21 goals with just two against. Other scorers were Jemma Lloyd, Sarah Parton, Katrina Ravia, Alex Waldron, Sally Jones, Finola Corbett, Vicki Roberts, Verity Farrell and Stacey Davis.
