Haverhill Rovers

The first match between the Lilywhites and Haverhill Rovers was a friendly match at the start of the 1909/10 season. The same season the two clubs played each other in the East Anglian League and the Suffolk Senior Club. Founded in 1886, Haverhill Rovers originally played at Seven Acres before in 1913 they moved to Hamlet Cross. This proved to be their home for nearly 100 years, as in 2010 they moved to the New Croft Community Stadium in Chalkstone Way, Haverhill.
