GFA WOMEN’S TROPHY FINAL

TUESDAY 12TH APRIL 2016

CHELTENHAM TOWN LADIES - 1

FOREST GREEN ROVERS LADIES - 4

A battling performance by Cheltenham Town could not prevent Rovers from winning a third consecutive GFA Women’s Trophy at the GFA headquarters at Oaklands Park. Right from the start Forest Green piled the pressure on Cheltenham, moving the ball around well, and it came as no surprise when Jodie Shepherd met a short corner with a close range header to put FGR one up after seven minutes. This was followed on the quarter hour mark with Kirsty Richardson slotting home an inch perfect through ball from Paige Stewart to give Rovers a bit of a buffer, and it was not until the forty third minute that Stewart got her own name on the score sheet, beating the keeper low down at her near post.

With Forest Green three up at half time it looked like they might add a few more goals to their tally, but Town came out with renewed vigour in the second half, and quickly pulled one back, when captain Jennifer Weals-Brown scored direct from a free kick. This only served to push Rovers on, and they continued to create and miss chances, until a harsh penalty gave Richardson the chance to double her tally from the spot, which she duly did to make it 4-1. Cheltenham continued to work hard, and created several good chances without taking advantage of them, and the final whistle saw captain Amy Baker lift the trophy yet again.

FGR squad: Amy Baker(Capt), Abbie Morrissey(G/K), Jodie Shepherd, Kelly Nightingale, Jordan Guard, Kayanne Castro-Alencar, Karolayne Castro-Alencar, Kirsty Richardson, Samantha Hallsworth, Paige Stewart, Annie Martin, Charlotte King, Rosie Dimery, Hannah Hale.

FGR scorers were Kirsty Richardson(2), Jodie Shepherd and Paige Stewart.

About FGR

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.
