Career

Rocky Baptiste Rocky Baptiste The Miss of the Century YouTube

Born in Neasden, London, he went to secondary school at Neasden High School. Baptiste was a junior at Chelsea and Brentford, but failed to earn a professional contract.

Hayes to Luton

After initially playing for Wealdstone, Baptiste made his breakthrough with Hayes in 2000, where he scored six goals in 14 league games and caught the eye of Luton Town. At a struggling Luton, he made three league substitute appearances without scoring. When Joe Kinnear became manager, Baptiste fell out of favour and made a return to Hayes on loan for the rest of the season.

Farnborough

During the close season, Baptiste signed for Farnborough Town, where he stayed for two years scoring a total of 30 goals in 49 appearances, including Farnborough's lone strike in the FA Cup fourth round defeat to Arsenal.

Stevenage and Margate

In the summer of 2003, Baptiste joined Stevenage Borough, following manager Graham Westley's move, where he stayed until February 2004 scoring fpur league goals. Baptiste moved on to Margate, scoring five goals.

Gravesend & Northfleet and Havant & Waterlooville

After a short spell with Gravesend & Northfleet, Baptiste moved to Havant & Waterlooville in August 2005. Baptiste scored the equaliser at the Liberty Stadium that forced a replay with Swansea City in the third round of the 2008 FA Cup. He also went on to score in the shock 4–2 replay victory that helped them into the fourth round against Liverpool.

In September 2008, he left Havant & Waterlooville to play for Maidenhead United, spending the first half of the season there before signing for AFC Wimbledon on 31 March 2009.

Harrow Borough

He joined Harrow Borough in the summer of 2009. While playing for Harrow, Baptiste infamously missed an open goal after taking the ball past the opposition defence and goalkeeper. He was inside the six-yard box and just a few inches from the goal line when he smashed the ball on to the left-hand post. At the end of both the 2009–10 and 2010–11 seasons he finished as top scorer for Borough, scoring 22 league goals in each season. In 2010–11, he led Boro to the playoffs where he scored twice but Boro lost in extra time. He scored a total of 28 goals for Borough in the 2010–11 season.

He left Harrow Borough in the summer of 2011 joining Thurrock of the Conference South. However, before the end of August he was back in the Isthmian League with Kingstonian.

Wingate & Finchley

Baptiste scored on his debut for Isthmian League team Wingate & Finchley from the substitute bench on 20 October 2012 against Lewes in a 3–1 defeat. In October 2013 he moved on to Eastbourne Town.
