Midfielder Natasha Fenton felt all the hard work from the last three years came together as Rovers recorded another league title.

The 20-year-old has racked up 119 appearances for the Blues, and said it still means as much to lift the trophy once again. 

“It’s just amazing. The feeling never changes. We worked tirelessly for the last three years and this year’s been no different. 

“We’ve got a different set of girls as well, but each year the journey’s been the same, we’ve had our ups and downs but again we’ve come out on top. 

“It just shows the quality that we have within the squad. It’s amazing that we’ve got these achievements and hopefully there are some more to come.”

Rovers clinched the title with a 3-0 home victory over Derby. Fenton felt the only pressure to be crowned league champions on the day came from within the dressing room. 

“We take each game as it comes. It was a big game – but every game’s a big game. Every week we put pressure on ourselves, because we have high standards. 

“I think we really reached those standards and put out a good performance, hence the three points.”

And the centre-midfielder is adamant that Rovers will not take their foot off the gas in the remaining league fixtures. 

“I think we just go the way we have. Obviously we’ve still got remaining games and we still want to go out and win each of those games. That’s still a goal for us. 

“The job’s done. But it’s not in the sense of the standards that we’ve set.”

Rovers are also going in search of an unprecedented ‘double treble’. Gemma Donnelly’s side face Crawley Wasps in the League Cup Final on April 28 before meeting Fylde Ladies on May 9, in the Challenge Cup Final.  

“Going onto the two cup finals and the Champion of Champions, we’ll just do the same. It’s obviously worked for us up to this point. It’s important that we don’t change what we do. 

“We need to go out and play like we can and hopefully we’ll get more success from it.”

You can see Rovers Ladies in league action at Eastwood CFC this Sunday, away to Nottingham Forest Ladies, (2pm).
