An update on the women's team

Stephen Rooth discusses positive year

6 July 2020

Stephen Rooth, chairman of Notts County Women FC, has provided an update on the progress and success they have enjoyed over the last year.

I’m pleased to report that it’s been a tremendously encouraging year for the club having established a strong financial model and continued to dominate on the field.

Our unbeaten first team, along with our Under 11, 13s, 14s 15s and 16s, were top of the table before the season was cancelled due to Covid-19, while our junior section has never been stronger with our Under 11s winning back-to-back promotions and under 13s promoted in the winter league. Our Under 9s, 10s, and 12s have also continued their journey towards developing our stars of the future.

I’d like to thank all our coaches, players and committee members Ian Smith, Sara Marshall, Anni Rahtu and Adam Dunleavy for their hard work and dedication over the course of the campaign.

While we have an agreement to use the Notts County name, branding and kit, we are a fully registered, standalone company with a focus on building a self-sufficient club which will provide the top players in our region with a high-quality training and games programme for years to come. This year’s accounts have been very positive and are testament to the hard work and professional standards we work to.

We have recently entered into a very exciting three-year deal with Basford United FC to use the excellent facilities at Greenwich Avenue for our training and matches. We’re really looking forward to getting to work there as soon as it’s deemed safe to do so and my thanks go to Chris Munroe for his support.

On a final note, I’d like to wish Neal Ardley, his players and everyone connected with Notts County the very best of luck in the play-offs.
