Forest Green Rovers are owned by Ecotricity millionaire Dale Vince has high hopes of leading the club up into the Championship in the future, but the club's immediate task will be preserving their Football League status.

Rovers are known as the "greenest club in the world", with solar panels on one stand, an organic pitch, electric car charging points, while only vegan food is on sale. It's a unique approach to the beautiful game, but it has so far worked wonders.
