First XI look to end positive campaign on a high

On Saturday 13 April, Tuffley Rovers’ first team squad will play their final fixture of the 2023/24 season, as they host Hereford Lads Club in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division. KO is 3pm.

Neil Mustoe’s squad had a difficult start to their league season, taking just two points from their opening seven league games, before an improving October (when they took nine points from a possible fifteen) was followed by a poor November.

Rovers’ fortunes started to improve in December and although a tough schedule in January meant results weren’t as hoped, the performances from Mustoe’s side showed plenty of promise and since then they have been amongst the form sides in the division.

Lads Club visited Glevum Park in early-February and Mustoe’s men were leading 3-0 when the game was abandoned at half-time, thanks to torrential rainfall.

Mustoe will be without several players for today’s fixture, with Mark Pritchett, Kieran Alder, Luke Merchant and Warren Mann all likely to be missing from the game due to injury, suspension or non-availability. Karnell Chambers returns after suspension, whilst Liam Smith should also be fit for selection following injury.

The official match-day programme for today’s fixture is now available online.
