Rovers Ladies development squad started their pre-season on Sunday with a 5-1 win over Mossley Hill Ladies Dev.
Squad coach Ellie Cash says she’s pleased with the first outing and believes the calibre of the squad will mean players are knocking on the senior team’s door.
“Sunday was a good performance, it was great to see the girls play together for the first time and seeing some of our players that have graduated through our RTC,” she said.
“It’s a positive first game, but we also have way to go and plenty of room for improvement.
“I am very happy with the development squad. The calibre of players we have brought in, some previously playing for WSL development squad and the retention of some key players from last season has allowed us to shape a nice balance of talent and experience.
“I’m sure like everybody else, the aim is to win the league and the reserve cup. However it’s more important for myself to ensure that players have the opportunity to develop and reach their potential, so that should a chance come with the senior’s, they are ready to take it.”
