Season preview: Eynesbury Rovers

A look at the season ahead for Eynesbury Rovers

MATT Plumb promised goals and attacking football last season and the Hall Road faithful were far from disappointed.

He wanted to be involved in the title race in the last four weeks of the season but went even better as Rovers pushed Irchester and Peterborough NS right to the final two matches of the season.

Plumb made massive changes to the playing staff last year but blended a good side that played attractive, albeit gung-ho at times, football. Goals rained in from all over the park and they would have deserved a promotion slot but for the failure to take only one point from Peterborough NS and Irchester from the four fixtures.

“‘There is no doubt that with the squad we’ve got we can take the title,”’ said Plumb. Bbut he added:; “‘ I want to bring fans in the ground playing the attacking style of football we managed last year, the players enjoy it as much as the fans.”

Plumb has retained his full squad from last season and has two new signings lined up, if terms can be agreed.

ON Chenecks provide the first league opposition as Plumb looks for a flying start., Tthe match is at Hall Road on August 14.
