Rovers return after summer troubles

Regional Premier South West News - Rovers return after summer troubles - 24 Mar 2017 - Women's Football News
Forest Green Rovers are celebrating a successful season after landing the South West Women's Eastern Division title, having gone throughout the whole league campaign with an unbeaten record.
After a traumatic pre-season, when the club was forced to withdraw the first team from the FA Women's Premier League, they started the South West Women's League season with some trepidation with a team that was largely last year's Under-18s.
After a bright start, the young players found that open age football was a big step up from age group football, both in pace and physicality, no better example being the trouncing received from Buckland Athletic in the Bristol Soccerworld Cup, which brought some stark truths home.
Undeterred, the players continued to progress and will look back on their first senior season with pride, having gone through the season undefeated in the league, and with several players making good progress in their development.
The season began with a trip to Team Mendip and confidence was gained immediately with a 7-0 victory, followed by another win against Ilminster Town. Next up was a tough trip to Oldland Abbotonians and a hard fought 2-2 draw - which turned out to be the only league match that Forest Green failed to win. The team never looked back after winning the next match 4-2 against AEK Boco, who were to be their nearest rivals throughout the season, and the title was clinched with two games remaining when they beat the same opponents 3-1 with goals from Sophie Okey, Sian Towler and Charlie Rowlands. On Sunday, they won 1-0 against Ilminster Town to complete their eleventh victory in a row in the league and will finish on top of the table by a margin of at least seven points.
Greg Simonds was charged with the task of guiding the team and has led the club to what is actually its second title in three seasons, assisted by coach Lorea Sarobe and Strength & Conditioning Coach, Chris Perifimou. Sam Morris is club captain and leading scorer is Charlie Rowlands, with 14 goals to her name.
