“We 1-0 that day in Purchase,” recalls Anto.
“That 91/92 season was the end of a golden period for the club. There was a decline in immigration and players were retiring. The following few years were difficult.
“Fielding a first and second team was always difficult and a lot of players played both games.
“The club is once again enjoying a purple patch and it has become a lot more inclusive. It’s worth remembering that the only way to sustain this era is through collaboration, off the field involvement and the desire to keep growing. Up the Rocks!”
