F.C. PORTLAND - FRIENDLY 17/08/01
Many thanks to the Coach, Players and Fans of F.C. Portland (Oregon - USA) who visited the Club for an enjoyable evening at the Showground, Great Harwood. A collection of Rovers' players, mainly from our under 15s, took on the Portland under 15s. The first half saw, a well drilled and "superbly coached" (cost Paul G. $50) Portland side take a decisive 4-0 lead, which was the final score-line despite a spirited response from Rovers.
Further thanks also go to - Bill Holden of Great Harwood Town for the use of the Showground, our Chairman Dave Smith and Wife Elaine for the post match refreshments, and the match Officials Mark Bibby (Referee) and his able assistants Darren Rogers and Ged Bolton. The following are a handful of images from the evening :-
