For 2003/04 

Lee Briggs (Goalkeeper)
Briggsy has played quite a few games for Town in the past without ever really completing a full season. He ia a very agile and flamboyant keeper who likes to make 'one for the camera' and has proven pedigree after playing for top sides such as Ossett Town and AC Midland. Assures me he will not be satisfied playing second fiddle to Matty Otley this year. Will brighten up the dressing room with his strange haircuts and sheepskin jackets!
Stephen Rigg (Right Back) 
Riggy will be joining Town this year following in the footsteps of his elder brother who played a handful of games back in 2001/02. He is a quick and skillfull full back or right midfielder. Should be challenging for a first team spot once his fitness is proved.
Chris Scanlon (Centre Forward/Attacking Midfield)
'Scanny' is a quick and intelligent player who will be a great addition to the front line. He should challenge for a regular first team slot this season providing he proves his fitness. Should bag a few much needed goals if we can keep him out of the Irish Centre and off the Guiness on a Friday night.
Liam Clark (Striker)
At just 16, Liam will be the youngest member of the squad. He scored 33 goals last year for Rothwell Juniors and made the wise choice of switching to Rothwell Town rather than continuing into Robin Hood's reserve team. We are all hoping Liam becomes a very useful open age player to solve our goalscoring problems of last year.
Andy Hawkins (Midfield)
Introduced this year at pre-season by Steve Payne. Andy looks like a solid player who has good feet and ability to pass the ball. Will be a good addition.
Wayne Fellows (Midfield)
Wayne is an ex Methely player who appears strong and quick. Looks like a lad who's not afraid to get stuck in and should challenge for the 1st team right away.
Craig 'Rio' Purcell (Centre Back)
Rio graduated through the Town Reserves and played a huge role in 2001/02 under Tony Clarksons managerial reign. He was a fixture at centre half and won the players player of the year. He left for greener pastures mid-way through last season leaving for Tadcaster Albion. Despite Rio forcing his way into their first team he decided to rejoin his roots and play alongside his friends. He will have a big part to play this year if Town are to prosper. (see picture)

The lovely Rio

Danny Firth (Midfield)
Little is known about Danny. He joined us for training 2 weeks ago and made his debut against the Under 18's at centre half. A full outing is required before we know what type of player Danny is and what he can bring to the squad.
