After that magnificent 3-1 win at Westonzoyland (with nine for the first half and nine plus an injured player making 10 for the second, it means that the side has now ended the 2014 year UNBEATEN in all competitions! This really does auger well for the future of the club. The big thing is now – how can we make 2015 further progress? One thing we are going to be looking at is keeping this current gravy train rolling and that means playing on as either an Under-17 side, or indeed having a crack at playing as a young Under-18 side. All curremnt players can rest assured that the ‘master plan’ is to keep this set of players together and see if we can’t, at the very least, put FOUR OR FIVE (or more) of the current squad into the Rovers senior first team for the start of the 2017/18 season. Here’s hoping!
The team now enjoys a festive break – though five of the lads are playing this coming Sunday (December 21) for Devon against Gloucestershire Under-16s on nthe Almondsbury articifial surface. Rovers Under-16s retrun on the first Saturday of Janaury when we play our FIRST home game of the season against BRIDGWATER VPR and then a week later we entertain WESTONZOYLAND before a KO CUP QUARTER FINAL at MINHEHEAD on Saturday January 18.
So until we convene it’s a case of HAPPY CHRISTMAS and here’s to a successful 2015 for all our players, management and officials and their families.
