Rovers-Beauy Derby

It’s derby time with the Hampton Rovers taking on local arch-rivals Beaumaris at Boss James Reserve on Saturday. It’s no secret the Rovers have had a terrible start to the year but anything can happen in a big game like this.

Beaumaris have had a reasonable start to 2011 following on from their C section premiership and subsequent promotion last year, winning three games from the opening seven rounds. While the Rovers have had a depleted side and only managed a draw in the season opener.

The club’s haven’t met at senior level since 2005 and have shared a great rivalry over the years, culminating in the 1998 C section Grand Final in which the Rovers defeated the Sharks by a goal to claim the premiership flag.

All supporters are encouraged to get along to Boss James Reserve on Saturday and help make it a massive crowd for this clash between two of Bayside’s biggest football club’s. The seniors commence at 2:00pm with the Reserves at 11:40am.

There is also a Rivaly Luncheon on prior to the main game with final bookings now being taken. Enjoy the full Hampton Rovers match day experience and book your seat now – Click Here to read more and book.

The day is also being promoted as Juniors Day – all junior Rovers players who come along in their footy jumper will receive a free hot dog and drink. Some under 9 players will be present in the rooms to hear the closing stages of coaches speech before the game and all players will form a guard of honour for the senior players to run through. A junior game will also be staged at half time of the seniors.

The Thirds this week take on Ajax at Albert Park commencing at 11:40am, while the Under 19’s have already won on default after Oakleigh withdrew – so we expect all U19 players to show their support at Boss James Reserve.

Get behind the Rovers this weekend for what will be a big one!
