Having lost so many players from last season, it was down to a mixture of last season's Reserve team players and Under-18s to step up as the new first team of the club.
Having done this, and also having attracted some very promising players from outside of the club, they are now in a very good position to gain promotion this season up to the South West Women's Premier Division. At the midway point of the season in the league, Rovers have a healthy lead of seven points over second placed AEK Boco having won seven of their eight league games so far, drawing the other.
Having more local players has also helped with the playing and social arrangements within the club, which has been of immense benefit to the playing staff of manager Greg Simonds, Lorea Sarobe (Head Coach), Chris Perifimou (Strength & Conditioning Coach) in organizing events and travel. This, along with Jim Chamberlayne and Alfie Lewis running the U18s, and Rob Gaffney and Matt Turl with the U16s, has meant that all three teams are around the top of their divisions, and are playing some good football.
Good progress has also been made off the pitch, and although it was a great shock initially to have to withdraw the first team, it has brought the Ladies and Youth section closer than ever to the parent club, who have been very supportive, and already a very successful Quiz Night has been held by the FGR Supporters Club which has boosted the section's funds, and future events are planned for the new year.
With the feel good factor now returning to the club, and the new stadium and facilities coming online soon, for which the Ladies section were consulted for their requirements, it is hopefully going to result in FGR Ladies returning to somewhere near the top in the not too distant future!
