Looking at an old Non League directory at the Eastwood Hanley entry it mentions that they incorporated Trent Rovers in 1982. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this club, where they played, what level and what division.
Also if anyone has any personal memories of Eastwood Hanley I'd be interested. Was their ground called Trentmill Road or Berryhill Fields?

The only thing I have about Trent Rovers is that they entered the 1982-83 FA Vase, and scratched from their preliminary round game at Racing Club Warwick, presumably due to be being incorporated into Eastwood Hanley!

They played in the Staffordshire County League (North) during the late 70's early 80's ... must have been quite good since they were champions of the Premier Division from 1979/80 to 1981/82.

The Rocester website has a very good archive section with some league tables from around that time with Trent Rovers in.

I think they used the adjacent pitch to Eastwood in Trentmill Road. Hanford took up the vacant pitch after EH and TR merged.
