Meet The Newest team in the Women's League - Rozel Rovers Ladies

Tim Pryor a voice synonymous with local sport from his time at BBC Radio Jersey has taken up the managerial reins at Rozel Rovers Ladies.

Tim what made you decide to enter the managerial hot seat at Rozel Rovers Ladies?

"I've followed local football closely over the past decade in my former job at the BBC and now I’m freed up to get involved myself. I got chatting to Jodie Botterill after I’d hosted the JFA/Combination end of season night, and she mentioned Rozel were forming a new women’s team. It sounded exciting, I’d had a few beers, and suddenly I was putting myself forward as manager."

Have you been pleased with your squad’s Pre-season preparation?

"Yes, really pleased. Ciara Giles has put on some excellent sessions as our head coach and the players have generated a great atmosphere at training. We’ve had two friendlies and had two really positive performances. Ideally we need a few more players involved but it’s tough at this time of year with lots of people away on holiday or unavailable. We’d be keen to hear from any potential players."

The Women’s League will face a new test this Season from Ormer FC, what will the introduction of playing the Guernsey side bring to the League?

"It’ll be a good challenge and give our players chance to test themselves against a different opposition rather than coming up against players they’ve already encountered numerous times."

As the newest team in the league what are you expectations for the new season?

"You can’t read too much into pre-season results, but our two games have shown that we should be really competitive in our debut season. We’ve got a young squad with plenty of potential to get better and better, mixed with some of the island’s top performers in recent years. Team morale is great and that’ll count for a lot too."

What would you say to any players, looking to take part in Womens Football this season?

"Please come and join us at Rozel! We’ve got a great bunch of girls and our whole ethos is around having fun and enjoying our first season."
