New Page for Rovers
Story courtesy of Burton Mail
Gresley Rovers made a new “signing” last night – and it didn’t even cost them the price of a transfer form.
For the man coach Steve Dolby hopes will come through to play a vital part in the run-in to the Banks’s League championship is long-standing Moat Ground favourite Dean Page.

After an injury nightmare stretching back almost a year, Page has been named in Rovers’ squad for tomorrows game at home to Oldswinford.

“That’s like us going out and making a major signing,” said Dolby.

Page’s ordeal began last spring when a knee injury forced him to miss Gresley’s Derbyshire Senior and Banks’s League cup double.

Surgery was prescribed and duly carried out during the close season to correct ligament damage. But when Page made his comeback for the reserves in the Autumn, ankle ligament damage threatened the career of one of the finest talents on Gresley’s books in recent seasons.

Now, however, the Tamworth-based player is hoping the worst is behind him and that, belatedly, he can help Rovers to their dream of the Banks’s League title.

Said Dolby: “Dean came through training and it’s great to have him back in the squad. Obviously there’s a question mark about his general fitness, but I regard Dean as one of the best sweeper’s in the Banks’s League. At his best, I think he’s capable of playing at a higher level.”
