Pre-season Update

Update from ROCFC Football Director Rino Cialini

Pre-season training for the 2017 season commenced on November 28, 2016 - under new club coach Adrian Rocco.

The ROCS players were put through their paces, with 10 sessions prior to Christmas. After a short break over Christmas, training resumed at Rostrevor College on January 9, 2017.

Players and Coaches have again been very fortunate to have had access to the school's grounds during the pre-season..

The numbers out at training have been encouraging, with attendances averaging 30-40

Player losses for 2017 have been minimal at this stage. Daniel Bell has returned home to Warracknabeal (Vic), having completed his tertiary studies in Adelaide. Jordan Lyons has moved to Sydney, and a couple of other players are likely to miss the second part of the season because of work/study placements. Luke Manuel and Chris Pahl are making steady progress from their late season operations. 

The remaining senior players of the 2016 A & B squads have been training, and are committed to the year ahead.

At this early stage, the club already has made several additions to last year's list. Old scholars out training for the first time have included Braden Allen (North Ad /,Broughton-Mundoora), Matthew Bosch, Nick Dinham (North Ad/Norwood), Matthew Mignone, Jake and Matthew Walker (both transferring from Hope Valley FC).

Scott Gilbert (overseas), Ryan Holm (long term injury), Nathan Hornhardt (Bute), Kieran Noell, Lachlan Surman and Jono Trenorden (long term injury) have all returned to the club.

Michael Coad (Sturt/Gold Coast) and Zac Noonan (Jamestown/Peterborough), have also joined the club.

The leadership group will be announced after the trials, and just before Round 1.

Adrian's assistant coaches for 2017 will be Greg Moulton and Michael Coad. Their experience and knowledge will be invaluable to the club in 2017.Damien Polkinghorne and Steve Edwards will continue in their respective roles as B and C grade coaches.

Wahib Joubeir (Physio) and Vicki Lines (Head Trainer) will be in charge of the medical side, once again.

Training  will move back to Campbelltown Memorial Oval in late March, or as soon as East Torrens Cricket Club's commitments have concluded.
