Holme Rovers under 9's blacks

Richard Brook | 08/09/2018

I was asked to stand in and help run the under 9's blacks today with their first league fixture of the season and what a great game it turned out to be. Things did not start too well with only 6 players been present at the start of the game and the team soon found themselves a few goals down but to their credit they kept their heads up and started to play as a team as in getting goal side and putting in some great defensive work. When the team managed to have seven players on the pitch they matched Goole in all areas and matched them goal for goal. It was great to see how the team worked well together with great passing which culminated in some fine goals been scored. I do not like to mention individuals normally but a big congratulations to Lucia in completing her first full game [60 minutes!!!] and to Tom who got my man of the match in having to work up front on his own while having only 6 players and was richly rewarded in getting a great goal near the end of the game but his goal celebrations need some working on! Again a big thanks to all players giving 100% over 60 minutes and enjoying every minute of it.

Soccer School

Richard Brook | 10/08/2018

This week saw another new venture undertaken by our football club in holding its very first soccer school. I am glad to say that over the last 5 days more than 30 children on average per day have attended. Listening to the players they have had a great time as improving their football skills and having fun at the same time while attending. The only negative was my dancing skills which were no where near the standard of those players attending. Lastly I would like to thank all those within Holme Rovers who organised this event and those that helped run the soccer school this week.

To date there has been just over £2000 raised. Again thanks to all and a quick and speedy recovery to Mike Wright who unfortunately broke his leg in this match.

Community Awards 2018

Richard Brook | 09/07/2018

I had the privilege of attending this ceremony on Saturday night which was held at Hull University and had guest speakers Nigel Adkins the Hull City Manager and Garreth Roberts ex Hull City captain. The most pleasing part of the evening was the presentation of the ''young volunteer of the year award'' which went to our very own Nathan Gregory for all the work he has done within the club. Also when presenting this award Garreth Roberts [do not know who told him] praised our club in the volunteers it has which has allowed the club to get where its is today. Well done to Nathan and all our volunteers.
