Matt Rose's return to Gloucester City is another major summer transfer coup for Tim Harris, not least because he was persuaded to leave Weston-super-Mare where he was skipper to drop down a division into the SLP. In doing so he links back up with Tim Harris who signed him previously as manager of Newport County, and returns to City where he spent one previous season. Rose is an energetic and solid defensive player who shows great grit and determination, whether playing in his usual central defensive role or in midfield. Matty added another string to his versatility bow, lasting over half an hour in goal against Banbury and keeping a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw, although he was helped by Banbury failing to muster a shot!

First arrived at City making a considerable step up in standard of football, having previously been a youth player at Ch#!tenham Town and then part of Cirencester Town's side that won promotion from the Hellenic League. Initially arrived as a defensive squad player but the financial implosion at the club and resulting player exodus left manager Brian Hughes with few options and Rose quickly become an essential part of the first team. Such was his determination and the grit in his performances early in the season that he took over the captaincy of the side following the departure of Gary Kemp. His versatility was also an assett, playing in defence, midfield and was even forced up front for a few games. His efforts were one of the few bright spots in a miserable season that ended in relegation for City, but Rose did enough to catch the eye of Tim Harris who took him to Newport County. After three successful seasons in Gwent he crossed the Bristol Channel to join Weston in October 2003 for a four figure transfer fee. During that time Weston survived the cut to take their place in the new Conference South, Rose being handed the captain's armband before swapping the North Somerset's survival struggles at that level to return to City.
