New-look Rovers out to build momentum

WITH a dramatically new-look squad, Karl Addis is confident that Rovers can buck their recent trend as the Priaulx League’s basement side in the coming months.
While there has been a lot of movement around the various clubs during the summer, no club comes close to the blue-and-whites at Port Soif in that particular respect.
Over 20 new faces are involved within the senior set-up for Addis’ second season in charge, over half of those likely to be involved in the Priaulx squad from the outset.
With names unfamiliar to those not clued up with the Saturday League, but coming highly recommended, Addis (pictured) is confident that last season’s finish of 24 defeats from 24 games can quickly be forgotten.
‘I don’t have any three-year plan or anything along those lines, except to see Rovers improve year-on-year, which is the only target I have,’ he said.
‘Realistically, the target has to be to not finish bottom this season and I fully believe we can achieve that target and even mix it in a mid-table battle if we perform.’
