Forest of Dean lifted the Gloucestershire County Women's League Cup after they ran out shock 4-1 winners over league champions Cleeve West Town in the Final at Yate.
Cleeve went into the match chasing the league and cup 'double' and having won the league with an unbeaten record and they looked to be on their way when Karen Manson gave them the lead. However Forest of Dean fought back and levelled the scores through a fine header from Tara Rutter before going ahead for the first time when Annie Martin netted from the penalty spot.
Cleeve tried to get themselves back on level terms but their free scoring forward line was kept at bay by a strong defensive display by the Forest of Dean back four, superbly marshalled by captain Emma Clutterbuck.
At the other end, strikers Annie Martin and Sam Morse were a constant threat and the duo were eventually to sew up victory for the Division Two side, firstly after a strong run from Martin saw her set up Morse whose shot was adjudged to have crossed the line after hitting the post. Morse then scored her second with an emphatic finish following more good work from Martin to round off a great day for their side, which narrowly missed out on the Division Two title seven days later when they lost their decider with Swindon Supermarine.
