🔴⚫️ Rocks Weekend Round-Up:

1sts hosted Briston Res. at Green Lane on Saturday, after only playing at Briston in the same fixture 2/3 weeks ago coming away with a heavy loss. We knew this was a game to gain 3 points so with a new look 1st team with M. Sturman at the realm. The game started perfectly for Rocks after going up 1-0 through Ali! We then went up 2-0 through Rab (fantastic so far), then a hero emerged from the bench, J. Horscroft, returning to Rocks this season after being away from the club for 8 years or so, he only went and got a bloody hat trick didn’t he! Once the first goal went in from Horscroft, confidence flowed so he was playing at 130% and the rest is history!

FT: 5-1 to the Rocks

Fantastic chaps, well done and a well earned 3 points - we will start as we mean to go on for sure. I imagine the 🍕 afterwards tasted all the more delicious after.

A tough day however for Ressies who were on their travels to Hockering, who were class throughout and took their chances well. We did however manage to score 3 through a Preston smash (another Sayer in the ranks), a class S. Farrow header from a measured J. Trigg free kick, and a ‘never in doubt’ calm as you like penalty converted by J. Smith. Some class handling and saves from K. Painton in goal too (definitely got his dad’s traits). Well done despite the result Ressies, every single one of the lads gave their hearts throughout and things will come soon. A very fresh team to build. MOTM: Jesus (the Rocks version)

We’re on the hunt for a Reserves manager as Marty is now 1st team manager, get in touch if interested, we have had enquires we are taking into consideration already too.

No Vets or Ladies matches but they return this weekend 🔴⚫️

Bit late (and slack in previous weeks) but:

🔴⚫️ Rocks Weekend Round-up:

With a new look 1st team squad last Saturday, we hosted a tough Hempnall 1st team at a sunny Green Lane in the prestigious Norfolk Junior Cup run by Marty S. We love being underdogs. No Ressies game.

Our opponents being 4 or 5 divisions above us were a force throughout however Rocks held their own well and produced some class football for the whole 90 minutes and it was a pleasure to see after the last few weeks. A turning point for sure!

Only two penalties separated us in the match, final score of 2-0, which was very hard done by considering we defended well and N. Rhodes in goal producing a decent display! We all know the second penalty wasn’t actually a penalty but we’ll move on.

Our Vets were the second and last Rocks team in action last Saturday, taking on a quality Outwell Swifts Vets side at Green Lane. A great start for Rocks going 1-0 up in the first 5 minutes, but our opponents replied in quality fashion to go up 4-1 in the second half. We scored a second to make it 4-2 in the end. But football didn’t matter at all on the day due to immensely sad news that Outwell Vets had lost a player a few weeks ago unexpectedly, he was only 38. We held a minutes silence in honour for him fighting back the tears all round. We have wished our opponents all the best and have even gathered a decent sum of £200+ from our players, committee and Playing Field committee to the grieving family, the least we can do.

Thanks for the fantastic support at Green Lane and in our Rocks stand for both games! See you next weekend for more Rocks action.

Photos of the match coming this week (Kayles has got a proper camera now) 🎉🎈
