Rollo Hovey

biography

A versatile full-back or midfielder, Rollo is a very useful footballer with bundles of energy and a youthful enthusiasm for the game. As a full-back he is determined in defence and loves to get forwards supporting the attack in the manner of all modern wide defenders. He can also play anywhere across the middle, his stamina and competitive streak ensuring he always proves a handful for his opposite number.

His versatility has proved extremely useful to the club since making his debut in the 2s' 2-1 defeat away to Sennockians on October 17th 2015. After impressing in the 2s, he was called up to the 1s for the final three games of their disappointing season, making his 1st XI debut in the 2-2 draw at Radley on April 2nd 2016. He ended his first season with 12 appearances for the club in all competitions.

The following campaign, season 2016/17, the story was remarkably similar, with Rollo again mainly used by the 2s, but called up to the 1s whenever required. He played 8 games for the 2s and four more for the 1s, repeating his dozen appearances for the club from the season before.
