James Rogers Next In At Invicta

Folkestone Invicta are pleased to announce that experienced midfielder James Rogers has signed for the club. Last season he was at our neighbours Hythe Town, and at the end of November he took over as Manager following the departure of Steve Watt and he did an excellent job in guiding what was a young and inexperienced ‘Cannons’ team to safety in the South East Division. The picture above, courtesy of Randolph File, shows him in action for Hythe Town.

 

James, universally known as ‘Rogo’, is now 37, plays on the left side of midfield and this is his third spell at Invicta, although if you blinked you may have missed the other two! He played two games in the 2011/12 season whilst on loan from Dartford with his debut being in a 2-1 win at Godalming Town, whilst during the 2015/16 season he played a further five games whilst on loan from Maidstone United.  

 

He started his career at Dover Athletic, making his debut in the 2003/04 season, when he scored direct from a corner after just twenty minutes in his first game, a 2-0 win at home against Moor Green (now Solihull Moors). He spent the next seven years at Crabble, during which time he became a ‘fans favourite’ as he helped the club win the Isthmian League Division One South in the 2007/08 season and then the Premier Division the following season.

 

Having failed to make a First Team appearance at the start of the 2010/11 season, he joined Margate in  October 2010, but by the end of the season he had moved onto Dartford. He then had an eighteen-month spell with ‘The Darts’ before going back to Dover Athletic in the early stages of the 2013/14 season from where he joined Maidstone United for the start of the following season, and the following season he won the club’s Supporters’ Player of the Season. He then went back to Margate during the closing stages of the 2016/17 season prior to joining Hythe Town in October 2019 and taking over as Manager in November 2021.     

 

 Neil said: “Again I’m delighted to have signed James; he is a vastly experienced player who has spent a  lot of his career at clubs higher up the ‘Pyramid’. “Although he is 37, he has a high level of fitness, and will be a valuable asset in our midfield”.

  

Welcome (or welcome back!) to the BuildKent Stadium James!
