Rovers maintained their 100% start to their league season with a hard fought victory at local rivals Wickhambrook.
CAMBRIDGESHIRE COUNTY LEAGUE - MEAD PLANT & GRAB 4A
Rovers pushed from the off, playing some good football and created most of the opportunities in the first period, the visitors went ahead from a good move that saw Kyle Clarke put a good ball in the box which Rory Jebb set off to Chris Claydon who fired home from the edge of the box. Rovers hit the woodwork a couple of times and saw the home keeper make some good saves before the lead was extended on the half hour mark when Ollie Stevenson met a crossfield ball to head past a stranded keeper.
The away side seemed comfortable, withstanding some physical challenges from the home side, before conceding just before the interval as a goal kick found its way all the way through to Miles who shot past a helpless Sam Jones in the Rovers goal.
Wickhambrook started the second half brightly as they sought an equaliser however Rovers fitness and ability to keep the ball told and Clarke added a third on the hour mark. From this point the game became quite stretched and although Jones made a couple of excellent stops and Miles scored a far post header for the home side, 3 more goals for Rovers secured the points. Stevenson hit the pick of them with a thirty yard screamer, Jeff Abila netted a composed strike from 20 yards and Aaron Wiseman scored his first ever senior goal with a calmly taken penalty.
The result sees Rovers remain in first place in the fledgling league table and look forward to entertaining Newmarket Reserves on Tuesday night in the Suffolk Senior Reserve Cup.
