Ross Junior Girls started training in August 2011, prior to this the girls had been part of the boys section. Since then this section has flourished making the club one of the largest girls clubs in Herefordshire, and building a reputation regionally with on and off the field activities and achievements. As it currently stands we can proudly boast 11of our players going on to join WSL academies such as Bristol City, Aston Villa, Birmingham City and WBA.
2016-17 saw another successful season for our girls section, the stand out event being the Under 10's becoming FA National Futsal Champions for England, after successfully winning the regionals and county heats. To put this into context the other National age group winners were Tottenham Hotspurs, AFC Wimbledon and Crystal Palace girls.
2016 saw the club become the first Gold Sister club of Birmingham City Ladies FC who play in the Women's Super League, we are now into our 4th season as a sister club.
The 2017-18 season saw the club running 8 junior teams. A successful Isle of Wight tour took place as well as club visits to support Birmingham City Women's and England Ladies games. We also have an ever expanding female section giving our girls a complete pathway through from junior to adult football. We have 30 ladies currently training with many ex junior players being part of this. We also started our Wildcats programme which was a great success with over 30 Wildcats attending.
2018-19 was another fantastic year with many teams reaching respective finals and our U12's winning the Gloucester Girls League and becoming FA National Futsal Runners Up, second in the whole country! The girls section also went on tour to Paris and performed brilliantly against Parisian sides. Wildcats continued for a 2nd year with impressive numbers.
With 8 teams the 2020/21 looks to be another great season and return to normal after the curtailed 2019/20 season.
The aim is to carry on increasing numbers and teams and the club welcomes players from all over. Currently the squad boasts players from Ross, Hereford, Ledbury, Abergavenny, Monmouth, Newent, Tewkesbury and the Forest of Dean. Each season success on the pitch is equalled by friendship and memories off the pitch.
