New era ar­rives in town

Campaspe News - - SPORT -

The club, which is only a few months into its new ven­ture, has found suc­cess with get­ting the com­mu­nity on board in the early stages.

‘‘We’ve had a num­ber of great spon­sors come on board and throw their sup­port be­hind the club and we hope to see the com­mu­nity con­tinue to sup­port us as we go for­ward,’’ Martin said.

Now, with the lo­gis­tics of com­bin­ing two clubs into one solved, the fo­cus be­comes purely about what hap­pens on the field.

And the club wants to see their team com­pet­i­tive al­most im­me­di­ately.

‘‘There will be a bit of teething as they play to­gether,’’ Martin said.

‘‘But the goal for this team is go­ing to be to be com­pet­i­tive as quickly as we can.

‘‘We’ve had suc­cess across most grades in the past few years, so hope­fully that will re­sult in more suc­cess for us this sea­son.’’

The blue and yel­low will open their B grade ac­counts as well, with Rochester Blue tak­ing on Kyabram Fire Bri­gade at Win­dridge, while Rochester Gold will take on Gir­garre at the Gir­garre Re­cre­ation Re­serve.

Rochester United and Rochester Tigers have been great ri­vals in re­cent sea­sons, but in 2018/19 for­mer op­po­si­tion play­ers will be­come team­mates.
