THE curtains came down on a highly successful season, for Rhoose Rovers FC, as they packed out the Cambrian in high numbers to celebrate at the club’s end of season presentation.
With manager, David Walsh and club jester, Jamie Bagnall, leading the celebrations as the club paid plenty of tributes to everyone that has contributed towards the club’s successes. The club would not have been as successful, had it not been for the contributions of local businesses GDL Solutions (Guy Lovering), KR Building Services (Kevin Rees), The Cambrian Bar/Restaurant (Nigel Wyleman-John), Go Direct! (Craig Trickett), Bagnall’s Barbers (Jamie Bagnall) Park Plumbing (John Park), Barrett’s hog roasts (Lyn Butcher), Hawthorne Travel (John Martlow) and Kevin Evans all contributed from match balls to sponsoring the club’s kit, to providing the club with food after every match. For that, the club will always be grateful and hope that everyone will continue to jump on the team band wagon to help the club push on to even higher levels.
The season proved an eventful one for the club and one that would live long in the memories of anyone involved, with Rhoose Rovers FC lifting the Dockers Cup and also the Division Two league title, there was plenty of reasons to be in cheerful moods for the whole club. In addition to the two trophies that were won, the club also paid tribute to all the players that performed on the pitch and wore the famous red (and sometimes white) jersey with immense pride.
Special awards were also handed out to the more consistent performers, of the team, highlighting the players’ fantastic seasons respectively. The awards were as follows:
