Woes, doom and gloom continue

Rovers woeful form of late continued on Saturday as the Bedfordshire village side made it 8 games without a win at the hands of relegation threatened North Leigh. On a blisteringly hot day in Oxfordshire Rovers won the toss and elected to kick up the slope. The hosts had the better of the opening play with Barton failing to trouble Eddie Cavanagh in the North Leigh goal until a great run from Victor Osobu in the 43rd minute saw a deft lob land on the roof of Cavanagh's net. Like busses two chances came along at once as Osobu rounded the keeper moments later but fluffed his lines at the crucial moment to scuff the ball wide. That was the only reportable action from the 1st half as both teams

Poor perfomance, lead to loss!

Despite taking an early lead after 10 minutes through Tony Williams Rovers performance in this one didn't merit a return in terms of points.

Bromsgrove were up for the game from the off and very nearly capitalised on a mistake at the back in the 1st min but some astute defending mopped up the danger. The hosts came forward with menace at The Rovers but attack after attack was seen off as Rovers confidence grew, Victor Osobu made a great run into Bromsgrove area but was muscled off the ball before pulling the triger, then a Drew Phillips over head kick sailed wide of the target. The hosts really had the upper hand but Rovers were co

Beaten in cup final after battling show

Rovers made the short trip to Bedford Town's stadium for the 2019 Bedfordshire Senior Cup Final match against Biggleswade Town. A tough ask versus their Step 4 opponents who are vying for a play-off spot in the Southern Premier Division. As expected, the Biggleswade line-up included Rovers 'old boys' Lucas Perry and David Longe-King who no doubt would be doing their utmost to prevent a Rovers win. The Rovers cause wasn't enhanced when, down to traffic issues, skipper Paul Andrews was unable to get to the ground in time for kick-off and midfielder Stef Bailey had to slot in at centre-half with Lee Close. Straight from the kick-off Biggleswade were on the front foot and, with just a couple of
