Rovers Ladies Reserves made it a league double for the club on Sunday after defeating Brighouse Town LFC.

Following on from the senior Ladies' league success, the Reserves followed suit to lift the FA Women's Premier League Reserves Northern Division courtesy of a 4-2 win.

Rovers went into the game two points behind leaders Huddersfield but knowing that victory would see them crowned league champions.

And a brace from Georgia Stevens, along with goals from Ellie Doggett and Antonia Carta, ensured that Rovers were not going to be denied the opportunity to lift the title.

Assistant manager Wojciech Kocyla says that a strong group and a togetherness about them has allowed for this achievement.

"Firstly, we have a great bunch of players," he said. "They have worked incredibly hard throughout the entire season.

"We have worked hard and believed together, that is why we have become league champions."

The Reserves can't rest on their laurels just yet as they still have a cup final to come as they face-off against potential first team opponents Tottenham Hotspur later this month.

"We have had our celebrations now," added Kocyla. "Now the focus goes onto the cup final, we will train hard, arrange a friendly or two to help us prepare and make sure we are ready for the 23rd."
