Rovers’ juniors celebrated at presentation day
Haverhill Rovers celebrated the success of their junior section with their annual youth presentation day on Saturday.
Following league matches of the under-11 boys and girls, the boys’ youth teams took turns at playing either an internal match with another team in the same age group or a friendly with local oppositions on the first-team pitch.
At the same time the bouncy castles, fairground rides, the donut and ice cream vans all burst into life at the start of a busy day.
The New Croft facility welcomed teams, family, friends, sponsors and supporters through its doors all day as the teams played a match and then received their end-of-season awards.
In the boys under-15s, goalkeeper Sam Jones was awarded the Supporters’ Players of the Year, while Spencer Law picked up the Player of the Year trophy.
Connor Bevan was the Players’ Player of the Year, David Scott won Most Improved Player and Brendon Mckay was given an award for being the top goalscorer, with 22 goals.
n Haverhill Rovers are currently looking for a new under-14s manager and three under-13s managers as well as one each for the new under-7s and under-8s teams. Anyone interested should contact secretary Jules Ankers on firstname.lastname@example.org
n Haverhill Rovers’ first-team matchday programme, whose cover is designed by an under-13 player, came third place in the Soccer Club Swap Shop Awards in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division section.
