Rossi was a central midfielder who could wipe the floor with the oppo on his day. When fit, he could boast to be one of the best players in the club. Unfortunately, he had a few injury problems over the years, however he won Players’ Player of the year in season 1998/9 and went on to become a key member in helping the 1st XI gain promotion with two fine goals against a strong Dunsfold side in season 1999/2000.
His involvement took a new level when he finally won the role of first team skipper in season 2003/4, a role he always wanted, he led the team to a credible 6th place that season, but sadly his appearances were numbered after he took up a new job in Leeds in October 2004. The man continues to run however with many a triathlon completed in fetching lycra.
