Rovers face another away day but Glevum Park waits

For the eleventh successive time during the early days of the 2021/22 competitive playing season Tuffley Rovers will play away from their Glevum Park home, as they travel to face Brimscombe & Thrupp on Saturday 18 September 2021.

Work to significantly improve the drainage system on The Rovers’ pitch started in April and although it had been hoped that this would support a return to hosting games in time for the new season, that hasn’t proved possible and the Glevum Park pitch remains out of action.

Whilst it had been hoped that the fixture against Brimscombe could be played at their home, Rovers had to concede that the pitch wasn’t quite ready and this weekend’s fixture was switched to The Meadow, with Sam Prior’s side the home side.

It is now hoped that Rovers can finish the pitch improvements in time for their FA Vase tie on Saturday, 25 September, when they are due to host Fleet Spurs in the Second Qualifying Round.
