With the holiday period all but over, training gets back underway for the Seniors on Wednesday 21st January as we head towards the first of three practice matches on the 14th of March.
Numbers were strong pre-Christmas with good representation across all four senior teams and a number of new players to the club. The club wants to see the strong momentum continue as the 2015 VAFA season in Premier B section approaches.
Pre-Season Training resumes on Wednesday 21st January and continues each Monday and Wednesday (No training on Monday 26th January for Australia Day). Players are to meet 6pm at Boss James Reserve unless otherwise advised.
The club welcomes all existing players and any potential new players as we look forward to an exciting 2015. To read more about joining the Rovers, click here >

14th or 15th March v Ormond (Venue TBC)
21st or 22nd March v Northcote Park (The Westpac Centre, Melbourne)
Sat 28th March v Mordialloc (Ben Kavanagh Reserve, Mordialloc)
Training will revert to Tuesday’s and Thursday’s once cricket finishes up for the year. There will also be additional sessions available including gym and running – these details will be communicated at training.
Everything leads to Round 1 of the 2015 season where the Rovers return to Premier B section and host Mazenod at Boss James Reserve. It’s set to be an exciting season with matches against local rivals Old Brighton, St Bedes/Mentone Tigers, Parkdale Vultures and Caulfield Grammarians. An early highlight of the season will be a huge ANZAC Day clash against Old Brighton at Boss James Reserve in Round 3. View the 2015 fixture here >
The club is thrilled to again have a strong coaching panel with Guy Martyn and Owen Lalor leading the Seniors, John Cesario the Under 19s and Sebastian Wright the Thirds. The club will make an announcement on the Reserves coach in the coming days.
2014 was an outstanding year for the club with the Seniors winning back-to-back premierships and the Under 19s finishing strongly to also claim the flag – we can’t wait for 2015 and we encourage everyone to join us for the ride.
