Former Yeovil Town defender and occasional midfielder Rob Cousins achieved a magnificent milestone last night. Rob made his 1,000th career appearance when he stepped out for Paulton Rovers in their home game against Andover.
Cousins was given a guard of honour when he stepped out onto the pitch in their Southern League Division One South and West match, and he helped the home side on to a 2-0 victory. Rob, who celebrates his 39th birthday next month, has played for a large number of West Country clubs, including Bristol City, Bath City, Forest Green Rovers, Tiverton Town and Mangotsfield United.
Nicknamed Trigger, after the 'Only Fools and Horses' character, Rob currently has a coaching role with Paulton in addition to his playing duties. He was signed for the Glovers from Bath City by manager Graham Roberts in the summer of 1996 along with fellow defender Jerry Gill and was a member of Yeovil Town's Isthmian League title winning squad. After 213 appearances, and three goals, he finally left the club four years later when the Glovers made the decision to become a full time outfit. Whilst with Yeovil, he also gained International caps whilst on duty for the England Semi-Professional side.
Congratulations to Rob on this fantastic milestone. With the Rob having managed almost a quarter of his appearances whilst wearing a green'n'white shirt, there's little doubt that all Glovers fans would want to salute his achievement.
