A Close Shave (Part 1)

A bit of a retrospective this one...the match was played four weeks ago and by all accounts was so close that Mr Gillett-Fusion and Mr Wilkinson-Sword packed up their razor business and trundled off back to Sheffield...

A close shave
The general feeling of the Rovers team after the Warndon match
To say that Warndon managed to scrape past Leigh and Bransford Badgers Rovers by a gnats whisker is a complete understatement. Take a look in the right hand margin and select the quote that best sums up how near Warndon were to a well deserved defeat...

Matt G scored our only goal in the 2-1 defeat but as usual the boys played out of their skins with everyone giving 110%. I'm told one of the Warndon goals was scored off one of their players shoulders...sounds like pure luck to me...Sometimes results don't go your way but just remember how many teams have come away from a Rovers match with the very nervous feeling that they will have to play us again...remember FerngullyWarndon in the pre-season tournament and who can forget the away game at Malvern Town. Malvern are one side who were chopped down to size in the return fixture and I'm sure Ferndale will be training hard to make sure this doesn't happen to them.

Well done to all the boys...Rovers are now a very difficult team to beat and that shows how hard you have worked, how much dedication you have for the team and how your skills have developed over this season.

Nice one lads
