AS THE clocks go back, this is normally the time of season where the Rocks begin to prosper.
Notorious slow starters, the Bognor of recent seasons take time to click – often, saving their best form for the months running into Christmas.
This time round, however, the chance to build momentum is going to be lmited.
After tomorrow’s long trip to Truro City, the Rocks have a relatively short trip to Crawley Town in the Sussex Senior Cup on Tuesday (7.45pm). That trip to the Checkatrade Stadium, though, ends a quiet October for the Nyewood faithful, a month where Bognor have just played four matches.
November then arrives, a month which sees the Rocks have just three matches scheduled after the rearranged National South match at Oxford City planned for November 14 has now been pushed back.
While time off can be a blessing for a team with a small squad, giving a chance to nurse it back to full health, it also hampers any chance of new signings settling in.
Rocks fans will be hoping this quiet autumn is chance to regroup ahead of a long winter ahead.
