Help Grassroots Football Survive
A message from our chairman Karly Hurst
"I would like to thank everyone who has contributed so far, with this support we are receiving it gives me great encouragement to know that the Rovers through these unprecedented times will come through and be a stronger club in the community and to carry on giving youngsters the opportunities to come and enjoy football at the David Wilson homes ground I would also like to thank all our committee,manager, staff, players and our fantastic supporters for last season and look forward to seeing you all next season Please all keep safe, Karly Hurst"
Like many other football clubs up and down our country, the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic is hitting Godmanchester Rovers hard. Income has reduced to zero whilst expenses such as utility bills, ground maintenance, insurance and certifications still need to be paid.
"Some clubs may not survive this crisis, but we are determined to emerge from it in the best possible state. We are pulling out all the stops to ensure we can be there when matches resume, and continue the incredible success we have had with our youth, U18’s, Reserves and First Team structures."
Godmanchester Rovers FC is asking whether you could assist by donating as much as you can afford to help the club get through this challenging period and continue the great work we have had to temporarily abandon. Whether you are a dedicated Goddy fan or simply supportive of what we are trying to achieve, any size donation would be much appreciated.
"Godmanchester Rovers is an important part of the local community and a destination for many on a Saturday afternoon where we see parents with young children who enjoy the youth set up come and watch the first team in action. The club has a fantastic support from this community and beyond, and we want to make sure it survives and continue to thrive in bringing our national game to local boys, girls and adults in the future."
In addition, if your donation is of £10 or more, and you leave your details when you donate, we will give you free admission to our next home league match, whenever that may be.
This fundraising initiative will be open until the 31st May 2020 (or when the target is reached) when we hope to understand further the implications of the COVID-19 virus on non-league football.

In the first of a new series, former trophy-winning boss and current vice chairman, Nev Nania, selects his all-star Godmanchester Rovers team of this century
There is only one selection I could make here – NIALL CONROY. A terrific keeper who seems to get better as the years go by. It would be wrong if he retired this summer as he still has so much to offer.

Drake books a holiday while on a high from Saturday's superb comeback win
Ollie Drake was in such a good mood with Godmanchester Rovers’ late comeback win on Saturday he went home and booked a holiday –for after the season has finished.
Goddy went a goal down against the run of play ten minutes from time at home to Brantham Athletic in the Eastern Counties Premier, but Mickey Hyem levelled after good work by Harrison Radwell.
Goddy weren’t finished, however, and Austen Diaper turned home Ross Munro’s free kick for the winner to make it four wins out of five for Drake's men after a difficult first half of the season.

3rd December 2019
Ollie Drake is staying on as Godmanchester Rovers manager for the rest of this season.
Drake told the Hunts Post last week that he was considering his future at the helm.
But he is now committed for the current campaign and is determined to turn around Rovers' fortunes.
They fell to a fourth defeat in their last five games in all competitions when being beaten 3-1 at Newmarket Town in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division last Saturday.
