Chloe Singleton and Muireann Devaney combined to great effect during the President's Cup.
New faces are mixing well with established Athlone Town players according to their manager Tommy Hewitt.
The midlanders won the inaugural Women's President's Cup on Saturday when they retrieved a two goal deficit to beat Shelbourne on penalties.
Chloe Singleton joined from Galway in the off-season as Athlone's top scorer Emily Corbett moved on to Wexford Youths.
Singleton and one of last season's best young midfielders, Muireann Devaney combined to great effect during the game.
