It was continental tour time for Rovers' Walking Footballers last weekend as they

headed to the Med to play FC Benidorm. Hill's match prep was not the best and a

midday ko at 30degrees gave the hosts optimism but some high quality Beacon pass

and move soon changed the atmosphere as the tourists won 12-0.

Back home Hill's Men's Development Squad made up of last season u16boys with a

couple of older heads had a great introduction to adult football beating Hutton u21s

4-2 at home. Most other Rovers' outfits were finishing preseason prep whilst the

u15boys started their Div One season with an excellent 6-3 home win over Aveley.

Other  Beacon scores were the 8s beating Gt Bradford 7-0 and the 9s winning 5-1

against Galleywood. 

On a sad note, news of the death of Colin Rogers has come as a shock to all who

knew him. Colin was Rovers' top striker for a decade into the 80s, always played the

game with a smile. Colin's grandson, Mikey Brewer plays for Rovers' u15s. Our

thoughts are with the family.
