Another Two Sign In

Alby Lansdowne is the Latest player to recommit for 23/24 is manager's player of the year and standout performer last term. The versatile defender/midfielder has become the foundation of this Rovers side and really now fulfilling all of his promise shown in his early years at the football club. Again it is so important that we have local representation by players we have developed and nurtured ourselves, and Alby we feel is well on the way to becoming a club icon in the mould of Jamie Barrett and the likes. Great to have Alby staying with Rovers despite inevitable interest from elsewhere! Bekir Halil was an important player last term and certainly the Mr Versatile of this Rovers squad, Becks was largely outstanding last season, and it is a real bonus that he will be remaining with the group for 23/24. Ever popular with supporters for his all action style and attitude, and really well liked within the dressing room by his team mates this is an important retention.

What can be said about Clarky, still very young and raw but all at the club see nothing but a really bright future. Fantastic and an ever present since coming in from Cheltenham Town, the young full back has gone from strength to strength, and it is a real positive that he will once again be a Moatman next season.

Two of our younger players have signed for next season. Dylan Hunniford. Young youth team graduate Dylan will be with Rovers again for 23/24. An exciting prospect who has made a notable impression. We are expecting further development from Dylan and believe he has a bright future at the club. Tyler Donaldson. Young defender Ty was a fixture in the side in the first half of last season having stepped up in levels, and really impressed. His season was hampered by injury which slowed his progress however we believe we have a real raw talent, and are over the moon he shall continue his development with us in 23/24.

We are delighted to confirm that midfield powerhouse Lewis Belgrave will be a Moatman once again in 23/24. Bello took some time out at the end of the last campaign to focus on his studies however now returns refreshed and refocused. With a full pre-season behind him we real feel we have a player with the ability and potential to be one of the best no 8’s in the division. This is a big signing for the season ahead. We are very pleased to announce the signing of attacking midfielder / deep lying forward James Tague from Belper Town. Taguey carries really good experience for his age having previously played at Basford United, Matlock Town and Gainsborough, extensively at step 3. We have acquired ourselves a top-class operator who will both create and score goals, and supporters will really enjoy watching play. An exciting addition to our side!

His success at Heanor Town also resulted in a two year stint with Stafford Rangers, where Jamie again found himself amongst the goals at step 3.

First Team Game Off - Reserves On
Our game at Shepshed Dynamo this afternoon has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. A new date will be arranged. However, the Reserve Team cup match against Collingham at the Moat is ON with a 3pm kick off. Why not pop up and give the lads your support.
