Town Stories

  • Training begins on 7th July in preparation for the new season
  • Rothwell Town Sunday Team have invested in a new kit for the coming Sunday Season in the Combination League. The new kit will bear a striking resemblence to the Derby County kit, this has in no way been influenced by the manager Jim Smythe who claims to be a Derby fan when they're winning.
  • Plans are in place to increase the size of the Rose Lund centre which currently splits Town's 2 pitches to accomodate more changing facilities for the open age. I'm sure many visiting teams will be disappointed to learn that the current changing rooms may not be there for much longer.
  • The new season is to begin on Saturday 18th August for Division 2, The Alliance Division 2 will commence on Saturday 1st September.
  • The draws have been made for the League Cup and Trophy, Town's first team are to play away at Otley Town while Town's reserves have been drawn at home and are to play Ilkley Town. The full list of fixtues can be found at the West Yorkshire League's Website.
  • Rothwell Town's first friendly for the new season is to be played on the 21st July, kicking off at 1 o'clock against Division 1 side Kippax Athletic.
  • Town's first friendly of the new season saw a steady performance despite the 6-0 scoreline! Several changes in the 2nd half with the scoreline at 0-0 disrupted the style of play and saw Kippax score a couple of quick goals and Town heads drop. Despite this Town could have been in the leasd at half time but saw a goal for Nik Foster ruled out for offside after Bjelic had struck the bar.
  • Town Sundays will host Armley Squash Club in their 1st friendly on Sunday 29th July. Armley, from the Leeds Combination Sunday League, have become a regular fixture over recent years.
  • Town recorded their first pre-season victory with a 3-1 home win against Tadcaster. Andy Payne (2) and a Chris Watson (Who apparently got a touch before the ball crossed the line) were on the scoresheet. Town prepare to take on fellow Division 2 outfit Mount St. Mary's this Tuesday.
  • Town's Sunday team were unable to make the moist of their chances against Armley Squash Club on Sunday. A Liam Robinson goal had put Town ahead before Armley equalised shortly before half time. An own goal then gave Town the lead again before Armley converted a penalty to level the scores at 2-2. Town will hope to build on this performance in preparation for the new season.
