Meet the teams: London Rovers


Chairman Viv Emanuel is delighted that Jeremy Brown has returned to MGBSFL management as new boys London Rovers look to hit the ground running.

HOPES FOR THE SEASON: We expect to challenge for the league this year. Most of the players have now played together for a year. we have a had a great pre-season and I fully expect we will carry in on into our league games.

ONES TO WATCH: Aron Luftig is a workhorse at the back, always putting in a great challenge. Josh Bharier is a strong and powerful central midfielder.

MAIN RIVALS: You got to assume Faithfold B, relegated last season and have recruited well, with Dan Gordon up front they have to be considered.

Sosobad intrigue me, I am curious to see if they live up to the JC and David Woolf hype, Mr Woolf does normally get it right though.

CAPTAIN: Adam Kaye, Vice-captain: David Brown

SPONSOR: Benjamin Steven Estate Agents

WHAT WILL YOUR TEAM BRING TO THE LEAGUE THIS SEASON? We will bring much experience and pace. We have a strong experienced backline and a great amount of youth going forward. We also have brought in an experienced manager in former Dynamo Hendon boss Jeremy Brown who returns to the MGBSFL after a five year absence.

"It's great to be back," Brown told JC Sport. "I knew that if I came back, I would only want to focus on managing the team and not the club as it proved too much last time round.

"Teaming up with Viv gives me that opportunity. He's got bags of experience with running a club and is doing a great job.

"We've put together a team with an equal mix of youth and experience. Some of the guys played for me at Dynamo and they'll be vital to this team. We have a lot of quality and we'll be aiming for a title challenge."
