With three-quarters of the season gone, Paulton Manager, Nick Bunyard, echoed the feelings of supporters that to go into the last quarter in eleventh place in the Evostik Southern League Premier Division is more than anyone hoped for.
The first priority was to avoid relegation, then consolidate in the first season after promotion, but recent form, seeing the team unbeaten in the league in 2015, since the defeat at Bideford on New Year's Day, has spurred the team on.
Since then, Rovers have recorded five wins, four of them away from Winterfield Road and a home draw. That includes wins that brought 'the double' over Cirencester Town and Redditch United, following last weekend's 2–0 success in Worcestershire.
Saturday, 14th February sees the visit of Biggleswade Town, who are six places lower than Paulton. 'The Waders' won 1–0 when the sides met last October in what was one of Rovers' poorest performances.
The Sunday XI remain top of the Bath Sunday League Division Five, even though their game against Norton FC was postponed last weekend. This weekend, they will travel to Lansdown to face Touchstone FC, kick-off at 10.30 a.m. Rovers won the home match, 4–1, last October.
