Biographical Text

Signed by Exeter City for a fee of £8,000 from Bath City in February 1979, the 25-year-old proved to be an excellent capture as in four of six seasons he was to play in at least 40 league matches.

Prior to playing for Bath, Rogers had worn the colours of Minehead and Taunton Town.

He made his debut for Exeter against Rotherham United in March 1979 and went on to feature in the City team that reached the quarter finals of the FA Cup in 1980-81.

His best seasons in terms of league goals was in 1981-82 and 1982-83 when he netted 10 in each.

He was eventually released on a free transfer at the end of the 1984-85 season and signed for Weymouth along with his cousin Martyn Rogers. He then played for Gloucester City (1987-88) and Tiverton Town, appearing for the latter club at Wembley in the 1993 FA Vase Final against Bridlington.
