Alan Gardiner formed the Ladies club in 1975 and was Manager until they entered the National League, when he took on
the= Reserve Team instead.                
Res= erves played in Blue shirts and white shorts according to the programme for the Final.=      
According to the Redhill Ladies website Janet Carpente= r is still playing and Alan Gardiner is still involved, having founded
the= original Friends Provident Club in 1971 before they merged with Prism. However, th= is was written in 2001!    
It also says that the club's move to Epsom was depende= nt on them changing their name to Epsom & Ewell Ladies.

8/= 5/94 Last home game of season at Meadowbank and beat Maidstone 3-0. Last game is Hassocks (A) on 22/5.  
Ful= l apps for season up to and inc 27/2/94 in programme 6/3/94 v Hemel Hempstead. + lot= s of other info.    
Last Res game of the season (against ?) was a 2-1 loss. I have calculated this from an earlier League table in Pagham prog
when we had played 17. Opponents could only have been Charlton or Farnborough but this was not possible as we'd
played them twice already. It is possible that it could h= ave been Teynham Gunners who won their last match 3-2 (not 2-1)
with venue unknown as yet, but it couldn't have been Pala= ce, Shoreham, Corematch or Hassocks as they were all
finished playing in this earlier table, and we had already played Whitehawk, Charlton and Farnborough twice, while the
Isle of Wight lost their last two matches.
Third Team won one and lost one of their last two matches with GD of F2 A2 both on or after 17/4/94. this is harder to
calculate, but unlikely to have been St Georges or Three Bridges and couldn't have been Chailey, Crowborough 2nds or
Lewes Mca Res as we had played them twice. Results can on= ly have been either a 2-0 and 2-0 loss OR<= /span>
a 2-1 win and a 1-0 loss OR a 1-0 win and a 2-1 loss
