Result - Rocester FC 1 - 1 Studley FC

Finally, the long-awaited season began as we welcomed Studley FC to Hillsfield...

By half time, the scoreline was still 0-0....

Although the Romans defended well for most of the match, they finally went behind in the 84th minute...

However, Rocester didn't give up and following an extended period of stoppage time in their own half,

Rocester took the play to the opposite end where 'that man' Liam Robinson scored in the 6th minute of added time!!!

The final whistle was blown immediately after the restart!

Final score; 1-1...

As a footnote, we are pleased to announce that Studley's choice of Rocester's 'Man of the Match' goes to Jack Stevens - our new forward.

A great way to start the season!!!

Keep up the good work Jack!!
