Time at Club:
Jimmy Ball is currently the interim manager of Forest Green Rovers following the departure of Mark Cooper in April 2021.
After 19 long seasons trapped in the National Conference the club finally ended years of hurt after beating Tranmere Rovers in the play-off final at Wembley.
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.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Forest Green collect wins versus Scunthorpe United, Harrogate Town & Grimsby Town while suffering adverse results at Walsall, Salford City, Bradford City, Bolton Wanderers & Cambridge United. Draws against Mansfield Town & Morecambe has seen them show mid-table form at best.
