Holme Rovers Forum

Charity Match

Richard Brook | 29/07/2019

In May when we had our end of season junior presentation day our main sponsor Mike ''O'' Reilly from McDonalds Shiptonthorpe stated what a great ''family'' club Holme Rovers is and this was shown yet again on Saturday when against adverse weather the football club and residents of the village came together to have a great day and raise a vast amount of money [over £3,500]. Even though it was a miserable afternoon lots of villagers turned out to support our charity match and so raise a vast amount of money. I would like to thank all concerned who contributed to this event, there are too many but you know who you are. As regards the money raised my understanding is that this will not go into a ''pot'' but Ward 39 at York Hospital are going to supply us with a shopping list of items we can purchase to allow them to further help with the rehabilitation of stroke patients. As I type this money is still coming in which is great. When the club has purchased whatever equipment it is able to there will be an official presentation and this will be advertised, so those who wish to attend can do so. Since we started our charity matches 4 years ago there has been circa £10,000 raised for various causes truly amazing.

Once again thanks to you all.

Junior Section 18/19 Season

Richard Brook | 26/05/2019

I would like to thank all our volunteers who have helped Holme Rovers this season in running seven teams plus mini soccer and so allowing approx. 90 children to play football on a Saturday. It has been hard work for a lot of us but seeing yesterdays presentation makes you realise ''why we do it'' and also it what was humbling to hear the kind word by Mike O'Reilly from McDonalds about Holme Rovers been a ''family''. The only sad thing is that due to shortage of players our current under 10's will not be able to play for our club next season and yesterday I did not have chance to see all the players and parents for this age group so I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best if finding other clubs and I am hoping that when Ben Pearsons team moves up to 11 a side that some of you have the opportunity to re-join our club if you so wish. As to next season planning/work begins next week, as we have to see what the implications are regarding reducing our current under 8's from two teams to one team. Sharon has informed me that the junior section will have a couple of Saturday signing on mornings in early July. Again a thanks to you all and anyone is more than welcome to come to our AGM.

Please note that our AGM will be held on Sunday 9th June at 19.30 in the Social Club

Holme Rovers under 7's v North Duffield Duffield under 7's

Richard Brook | 20/11/2018

Holme had the luxury of carrying over a number of goals advantage from the first leg and I am glad to say that due to a great team performance and effort that Duffield never looked like getting back into this final. Holme were very well lead by their captain for the day Jake. As I said all the team played well especially Thomas who I thought positional play was great when he was either supporting the attackers or carrying out his normal duties at defending and was unlucky to have his goal from a free kick disallowed. The man of the match went to Theo who even though is not a natural goalkeeper and does not necessarily want to play in goal puts the team first and while in goal in both legs has kept a clean sheet and when asked to do so played up front for part of the game on Saturday and got his first goal for the club with a well hit shot from the edge of the box. Congratulations to all of the team for getting the clubs first trophy of this season,

Car Park

Richard Brook | 16/11/2018

The football club over the last three years has been trying to lease the field adjacent to the Playing Fields and make it into a car park but the owners of the land the HOSM Relief in Need and Education Charity have set demands which the club cannot meet so it is with regret that the club cannot progress having its own car park on this field.
