Who are Woolston Rovers

Woolston Rovers Rugby Club was founded at the Lido Country Club on Manchester Road, Woolston in 1959. The first game played by Woolston Rovers was against Cadishead in the 1960–61 season with Woolston losing 58–8. For the first two seasons Woolston had no pitch, and played all their games away from home. At the start of the third year they acquired a pitch in Victoria Park, where they played until they moved to Bennetts Recreation Ground, Padgate.

PRESS RELEASE

WOOLSTON ROVERS v DRIGHLINGTON
BURTONWOOD BRIDGE v WOOLSTON ROVERS β€˜A’

Woolston Rovers aim to make it four wins out of four when they entertain Drighlington in a mouth-watering top of the table clash in the Kingstone Press National Conference League Division Three. Kick off is 2.30pm at The Sadore Construction Field, Monks Sports Club, Hillock Lane, Woolston.

Drighlington, who were relegated from Division Two last year, have started this season off in fine style as have Woolston, and they sit at the top of the league table on points difference from third placed Rovers with Waterhead Warriors sandwiched between them.

Rovers Head Coach Mal Holt said, β€œThis will be our stiffest test so far but one that we are really looking forward to. Drighlington have had three fine wins just like ourselves so it really promises to be a very exciting encounter. We are really happy with how we have started the year but know that we will need to improve even more on Saturday if we are to get the win. We will be working on some areas in training to ensure that we are ready to give put in a good performance.”

Rovers β€˜A’ will be hoping to be back in action on Saturday when they travel across town to face neighbours Burtonwood Bridge in the NWML Division Three. Kick off is 2.30pm at Burtonwood Community Centre, Fir Tree Lane, Burtonwood, Warrington, WA5 4LH.

Last weekend their scheduled game at Wigan Spring View was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch so they will be desperate to get back onto the field. Coach Andy Penny said, β€œIt was frustrating for us to not be able to play last Saturday but there was nothing we could do about it. We will now prepare for a local derby against Burtonwood, which is bound to be very physical and played at a high tempo. We know that they have a lot of quality in their ranks but we are also blessed with a lot of talent that will make this a good contest. We should have a strong squad to choose from that will give us a chance of getting the right result.”
