Yeovil Town v Nottingham Forest
 Women's Football News 14 Feb 2010
Yeovil Town v Nottingham Forest - 14 Feb 2010 - Women's Football NewsF.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Yeovil Town won 3-1 away to Norwich City to reach the last sixteen for the first time in their history. Kayleigh Nardiello, Kim Turner and Jemma Tewkesbury scored the goals which mean that Yeovil are the last remaining Combination side in the Cup and their reward is a big one - a home tie with top flight Nottingham Forest.
Forest survived a huge scare in reaching this stage, coming from two goals behind to beat Leeds City Vixens 3-2 with goals from Ellie Gilliatt, Catherine Lawson and Andi Bell.
The earliest known Forest Ladies Team competed in the Notts and Derby League in the early 1970s but in 1990, after a 12-week training course at the City Ground, a small group of young women advertised for more players in the Forest vs Everton match day programme. From this the current Forest Ladies Club was formed and played in the East Midlands League. During the decade they achieved promotion to the First Division only to be relegated back to Division Two after two seasons. They returned to the First Division and achieved as high as sixth place before it was changed to the Premier Division.
In 2002, Lisa Dawkins took over the role as Player Manager and they won promotion to the Midland Combination in her first season. They were runners-up in their first campaign but went one better in 2004-05, winning the title and promotion to the Premier League. After two good seasons, Forest captured the Northern Division title with an unbeaten record and were given a Civic Reception by Nottingham City Council. Survival was achieved in their first season in the top flight and they lie just below mid-table this time around.
Lisa Dawkins continues as Manager, assisted by Danny Johnson and Mark Jackson while Andy Marshall (Fitness Coach) and Edd Yates (Goalkeeping Coach) complete the management team, with Clare Stewart as Physio. Beth Bailey captains the side and is an important figure in midfield, Suzanne Davies has been a key signing up front this season while Ellie Gilliatt, Lauren Cresswell and Reanne Thomas are all highly rated young players.
The match will be played at Somerton and Forest are sure to start the match as firm favourites to reach the last eight for the second time in their history. However, Yeovil are a free scoring side at their level and should not be underestimated, this match should serve as a good guide for their future ambitions.
