Rocester Players A-Z

 

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W Y

 

Leon Carney

A terrier-like midfielder, a bundle of energy with a blue touch-paper which used to ignite quite regularly! Leon was every manager's dream in the centre of midfield, he would win everything. Alongside his tigerish traits Leon was deceptively skilful and possessed a keen eye for goal.

Steve Caswell (D.O.B. December 1981)

Left-sided midfield player who joined from local Sunday football in 2005. Steve was a useful squad member who would get forward and support the main strikers whenever possible.

Tony Croft

Father of Paul. Tony was among Rocester's most prolific goal scorers during the 1960s.

A gifted midfield player, Luke worked his way through the youth ranks at Port Vale and made one first team appearance for the Valiants in 2008.

Will Chadwick (D.O.B. September 1985)

Competitive ball-winning defender or midfielder who joined Rocester in July 2008 after leaving the Royal Marines.

Made just seven appearances before leaving the club in October 2008.

 

Mick Crump

Classy, stylish defender who oozed confidence. Mick's passing was top-notch and he could be moved up to centre forward when needed to grab some vital goals. Always comfortable on the ball he was willing and able to play his way out of defence. 

 

 

Karl Charlton (D.O.B. August 1983)

Began his second spell with the club in December 2008 when he signed from Staffs County League side Chesterton. A central midfielder by choice, but proved to be just as effective in midfield or up front. Joined Stone Dominoes in August 2009 after totalling 29 appearances and six goals for the Romans. 

 

James Curley (D.O.B. February 1989)

Talented midfielder with an eye for goal. James joined Rocester from Stone Dominoes in the summer of 2009, and scored 9 goals in his 20 appearances before electing to return to Stone Dominoes in February 2010.
