Our new reserves team begin their Essex and Suffolk Border League campaign against Colne Athletic at The Hawthorns this Saturday.
If you are not travelling to Hullbridge for the F A Cup game with the first team then the boys would appreciate your support.
To further enrich the pleasure of supporting Stanway Rovers, we will be endeavoring to provide Match Reports on the website during the course of the season after each game.
A new drop down ‘Match Reports’ has been added to the Main Menu of the website and write ups from our opening two games are now available for Member’s perusal and enjoyment.
Please note all reports are the opinion of the individual contributor and not necessarily the views of the club.
Rovers will be travelling to our F A Vase fixture at Hoddesdon Town on 31 August by coach.
If any supporters would like to join the team on the coach then please add your name to the notice board in the Members Bar.
Coach travel is priced at 10 pounds per person.
The last remaining tickets are now available for the UB40 tribute on Friday 9 August. Tickets are just 5 pounds for Members and that includes a free buffet.
Please do join us for the final performance of our summer of tribute acts.
Tickets are available now from the charming Kevin behind the bar.
The new season kicks off tomorrow with a home game to Newmarket Town. Please come along and support the boys. Bar open from 12pm with Stockport vs Maidenhead live on TV before the game.
Rovers are delighted to announce that we will once again be publishing a Match Day programme this coming season. The 16 page full colour edition will be available for the season opener against Newmarket Town and all following home games, priced at just 1.50. This weeks edition includes exclusive content from Chairman Dave Jones as well as Manager Danny Slatter, and if that is not enough there is even a photo of resident club model Kevin Mather on the front cover.
