Forest Green Lift Gloucestershire Trophy

Relegated Rovers will be playing Cheltenham in the FA Premier League South West Division 1 next season but they secured some success for the campaign on Tuesday April 12th.

They took a 7th minute lead with a Jodie Shepherd header from a corner and then Kirsty Richardson had them two up with only 17 minutes gone.

Paige Stewart struck before the break to see Forest Green go in three up at half-time.

Eight minutes after the restart Cheltenham pulled one back, captain Jennifer Seals-Brown netting direct from a free kick.

But midway through the half, Richardson doubled her tally with a penalty to restore the three-goal advantage, which Rovers preserved.
