Rocester

Currently Playing In:

Midland Football Alliance

 

Another well established club that originally appeared to be happy playing local football. However, thanks to some inspired work by management on the touchline and in the committee room, Rocester have enjoyed some exciting years with facilities and standards improving greatly.

The Staffordshire County League was an ideal competition in which to build the club but after topping the league in two consecutive seasons, the club moved into the exciting West Midlands (Regional) League in 1988.

An immediate promotion took ‘The Romans’ into The Premier Division and after six years the club was ready to join the new Midland Football Alliance. Five more years acclimatizing in senior football and the club were ready for another move up the pyramid. Supporters were certainly very proud to celebrate the club’s Southern League membership in 1999.

Football at this level proved difficult, and eventually the Football Alliance appeared to be a happy and comfortable competition in which the club will no doubt challenge for honours.
