Date Joined Logica:
Logica FC Debut: 11th January 2004: Rapid Decline 3-2 Logica. I think the lads were just chuffed that I owned my own gloves!! The reporter of the day noted: "The latter [Sapwell] was the answer to Groomís prayers: a goalkeeper by trade, who even turned up with his own number one jersey and gloves. And Sapwell didnít disappoint, as he showed himself to be more than able between the sticks. A full-length tip around the post was the pick of his saves, but at the same time he was not afraid to get on with the less spectacular jobs demanded of his position, such as punching a dangerous corner clear from amidst a scrum of players, as well as an effective save with his feet in the second half.".
Previous Teams: Broadstone FC, Corfe Mullen FC, Christchurch FC and various school teams.
Greatest Footballing Moment: Winning Players' Player of the Year three times in a row for Broadstone FC 1994-1997. Also winning the treble in school, and winning the league and cup for Broadstone FC. I was a legend there!!
Worst Footballing Moment: Letting a howler through my legs vs Dexters [under 11's]. Semi finals of the cup , missed out on a chance to get to a second successive final. We were the holders at the time. I cried...


Model Pro (Models His Game on You): Peter Shilton: what a legend! Most capped player for England and an astute professional.
Favourite All-Time Player: John Barnes - simply the best!! How cool was he in the Lucozade advert??!! One take he did that in... One take!!
Pre-Match Superstition: I make a hole in the centre of the six yard line with my boot [Er, that's actually illegal - "IfSelected..." Lawyer]
Interesting Trivia: Letitia Dean [Sharon from Eastenders] is a family friend. Also, I pissed next to a member of 'The Strokes' while at the NME awards.

Editorial Note: Rob is the current Supremo of Logica FC together with Steve Preston.
