FGR laides v Gillingham ladies

Postby michael » Sun Jan 17, 2016 12:44 am

As per the official site-a big cup game for the ladies tomorrow-really hope they do well and win.

I was down in Kentland today-important game down there-and Radio Kent-devoted a 5 minute slot in their peak sports programme to this game-being taken very seriously .
even had a report on the state of the slimbridge pitch.

hope the ladies can pull it off-good luck and get a win please

I think that interest in the ladies game is growing in the country, possibly on the back of the World Cup success, and not before time. A few weeks ago Brighton, who play in the same division as our ladies team, set a record attendance for their game against Charlton. As a one off they played at the AMEX Stadium and attracted well over three thousand for the game, which is higher than any team in the WPL have ever managed. It would be interesting to see how many would turn up at The New Lawn for match, if one were played there instead of Slimbridge.
The future is bright, the future is green...Forest Green!

Just received news that the ladies FA Cup match at home to Gillingham Ladies is definitely on .

1pm KO at Slimbridge FC. Go down and cheer the girls on.

Winners will be at home to Swindon Town or Tottenham Hotspurs Ladies.

After full time and extra time there was little to separate the two sides and the score finished 1-1. On 81 mins, Gillingham equalised thus cancelling out Kirsty Richardsons goal in the 51st minute.
So onto penalties and after missing our first 3 attempts Gillingham came out the victors 3-1. Good luck to the Gills in the 3rd round. Rovers have no more disractions as they fight to stay in the WPL Southern division.

Yes, a shame they couldn't get through. Its a tough season for the ladies after last years glorious success. I hope that somehow they can hang on to their league place and consolidate further . Going to be tough though.

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
