Old Boss Scoreboard Gone

Players and spectators will notice a difference at Boss James Reserve this weekend with the old scoreboard demolished last week.

The old structure has stood on the north-eastern hill at the Hampton Rovers ground and has kept score for many decades.

However, with the new electronic LED scoreboard commissioned prior to the start of the 2017 season, technology has made way for history.

The club had hoped to retain the existing scoreboard in case of any issues with the new scoreboard or power outage and to support our valuable major sponsors, namely Buxton, whose logo has been fixed on top of the structure since they first sponsored the club.

However the Bayside City Council insisted the old scoreboard be removed and it was reluctantly demolished last Friday.

The club thanks Glenn Roulent who volunteered his time to undertake this work last week and prevent the club from being charged for it to be removed. Glenn also did a lot of work for the installation of the new scoreboard over the off-season. We also thank Denis Flynn who renovated the bench seating on the scoreboard at no charge just a couple of years ago, we remember the late Athol Porter who painted the scoreboard multiple times and we thank everyone who has volunteered doing the scores for Hampton Rovers matches over the years.

The new electronic LED scoreboard at Boss James Reserve has been a great success for the club in its first season with a big lift in sponsorship as a direct result. Scores are now more easily updated and sponsors are given greater exposure with images, video and goal animations. The new scoreboard was funded by the Hampton Rovers Football Club and Hampton Cricket Club with no outside funding. Read more here >
