Practice Game vs Donvale
Published: Friday 19th March 2010 9:00 AM by HRAFC
Hampton Rovers play their second practice game of 2010 this Sunday when they take on EFL side Donvale at Mentone Grammar Playing Fields in Keysborough.
The Rovers are back to their home away from home after last week’s away trip to Ocean Grove. Over 60 made the trek then, and even more players are available for this Sunday which is great for the club on the numbers front. There will again be three games with the Under 19’s kicking-off proceedings at 10:00am.
A combined Reserves/Thirds team follows at 12 midday and the Seniors will get under way at around 2:00pm.
The two teams also met last year and on that occasion the Rovers got up by one point in the main game. The Rovers get a couple back who were missing last week but still have several unavailable primarily due to cricket grand finals this weekend.
The three games will be held on the Main Oval (as you drive in, on the right-hand side of the change rooms). Entry to the Mentone Grammar Playing Fields is on Springvale Road in Keysborough, opposite the southern end of Haileybury College. Melways reference 88 HD. VIEW MAP
As it’s a home game for the Rovers, wear green shorts. A limited number of shorts and socks will be available for purchase on the day. Arrive one hour before the game and 1.5 hours prior for senior players. All players are encouraged to stick around and support all three games.
All Rovers supporters are welcome along to see the boys in action as preparations continue for the 2010 season. A canteen will be in operation on the day.
