Rovers notched up their seventh win on the bounce with a hard fought away win at Stevenage Borough Blacksox.

Rovers always knew that this was going to be a tough game away at one of the leagues top teams. Blacksox applied early pressure and won a corner. Rovers didn't pick up a one of the Blacksox players who steered home the resulting corner. Rovers were a bit shell-shocked but from the restart upped their game and started to pass the ball well. Rovers themselves were awarded a corner which Kian whipped in and defender JJ tapped the ball in to level the score.Game on! Rovers were now playing the better football, Lucas went close with a good shot but the keeper saved well. Soon after Rovers went into their lead. A throw in from Kian was meet with a firm and well placed header by JJ into the path of Cory who fired into the net. Half time 1- 2 to Rovers.

The second half began with both teams playing good football and defending well. Blacksox pounced on a misplaced pass and took their chance to pull level. Rovers again had to up their game. There was lots of support and encouragement from the coaches and parents to lift the boys. Rovers got their just rewards when Cory played a lovely pass into Lucas, who with quick feet made himself a bit of space to fire in the winner. 

Rovers never gave up and were worthy winners!
