FOLLOWING the end of season presentation evening, Plymouth Argyle Ladies manager Travis Rowland has announced he is stepping down from the role.
Last season, Travis led the team to the fifth Round of The FA Cup, quarter finals of the FA Women’s Premier League Cup, won the Devon FA Women’s Senior a County Cup and won the FA Women’s Premier League SW Division 1 title.
During the 2017/18 campaign, the team finished the season undefeated in the league, winning 16 games and only drawing two. We also beat a number of teams in a higher league during the three fantastic cup runs.
A club spokesman said: “Travis’s record speaks for itself and this past season has been one of the most successful in the club’s history. He leaves Argyle Ladies in a fantastic position and we wish him all the best in his future.”
Travis added: “I have had a brilliant 18 months leading these girls and I wouldn’t change a thing. I have learnt a lot about myself and I hope I have stayed true to my values that I set out with. The support I’ve had from the committee, and from Trevor (Rodd) in particular, has been sensational and I cannot thank them enough.
“The season was tough on both players and coaching staff, but we managed to come out of it with an invincible league campaign and the County Cup.
“I would have loved to have taken my girls into the National League South next season but for personal reasons this is something that I am unable to do, and it was the hardest football decision I have had to make knowing, stepping away from a club where I’ve spent a lot of the last seven years.
“I wish the club and my girls all the success in the world for next season. I’ll be keeping my eye on the progress that they make.”
Argyle Ladies Chairman Chris French has confirmed the committee are currently in discussions with a new management team, which will be announced shortly.
