Willand Rovers

Currently Playing In:

Western League Premier Division

 

Another club that was formed after the financial collapse of their local football club, so in 1946, Willand Rovers took over from the departing Willand Wanderers.

Early seasons were spent in the Devon and Exeter Football League, until the chance came to join the Devon County League as founder members in 1992. By the end of the century, Rovers were proving to be one of the strongest in the competition and after winning the championship twice in three seasons, Rovers were promoted to The Western League.

With general improvements on and off the field, Rovers won promotion to The Western Premier Division as Division One Champions in 2005 and only once have finished outside the top six in the senior division. This is a terrific compliment to all at the club and especially to their long serving chairman Mike Mitchell and manager Clive Jones.
