So it's back to 'league
action' here at Hillsfield next Saturday
when we welcome Redgate Clayton FC for our
second 'Catering Butchers Derby' in what I'm
sure will be an extremely tough test for the
Romans - bearing in mind that Redgate have won every single game that they've played - including cup matches -
so far this season...
Rocester needed the support of the crowd,
this is the time...
So if you're at a
loose end on Saturday afternoon, make sure
that you're in good voice and come on down
to Hillsfield, and get behind the lads...
THIS IS A 2:30pm KICK-OFF...

Many thanks to FC Premier 2008 from the West Midlands Regional League
kindly agreed to play us here at Hillsfield
tonight in a friendly...
We are extremely grateful as this game provided the Romans with some much needed match time - especially for the many players returning from injury - and also following the postponement of the previous two matches...
We would also like to take this opportunity to wish FC Premier
all the very best for the remainder of this season's
Once again, many thanks!
****A VERY BIG "THANK YOU"****
A very big "thank you" for all the offers of help and support which we are continuing to receive...
The latest news is that Uttoxeter Town FC have very kindly invited us to play them in a friendly at Oldfields next Tuesday (31st October), kicking off at 7:45pm with proceeds going towards our emergency fund...
The club would also like to say a special thanks to our
long-serving (or is that long-suffering?) sponsors, Hill &
Webster , for
their very generous £500 donation...
In addition, many thanks are due to the Staffs Senior County League for rescheduling fixtures in order to provide us with the time it will take to implement repairs to the ground...
Also, BBC Radio Stoke have 'picked up' on our situation on social media and will be broadcasting an interview with our chairman (Dave Jackson) at 7:50 tomorrow morning...
We have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity shown to us and hopefully, with all this help,
and with a 'following wind', the football ground will soon be 'good to go'...
Once again, we would like to say a very big "thank you" to everyone who has helped us in our time of need!
Following the flood we were faced with a

and changing rooms being flooded with a thick layer of mud
and then the sight of the fencing at both ends of the
It was enough to make you want to weep!!!
However, many thanks are due to the dedicated volunteers who turned up this morning and did a sterling job in and around the clubhouse and changing rooms...
Also many thanks are due to Ashbourne FC and Redgate Clayton
FC who upon hearing about our plight, immediately offered to come and help
with the clean up...
Obviously, we need time to let the flood water recede before we can start work replacing the fencing and with that in mind, our commercial manager
- Joel Hollingsworth - has started a 'Go Fund Me' page in order to raise some of the much-needed cash required...

Ashbourne FC v Rocester FC
Rocester FC 0-2 Redgate
A decent performance from the Romans and many positives to take
away from a match which saw lots of action including yet another penalty
save from Lewis Jackson and a blistering long-range shot from Mo
Al-Amin at the other end - which Redgate's 'keeper did well to tip
over the bar...
At times, Redgate appeared to be more than a little 'rattled' when
they didn't have it all their own way as the Romans insisted on
playing good, entertaining football and you certainly wouldn't have
known that the two teams are currently at opposite ends of the
Friday night (1/12/23),sees us back in action as we take on
Ashbourne FC 'away' at Hillsfield - this is
