Bristol Rovers Football Club

Regular price $23.00 $0.00
Bristol Rovers,the oldest professional club in the city,
has a proud and fascinating history. In this book,
Mike Jay vividly captures a flavour of that past with over
220 high-quality archive images, including team groups,
action shots, player portraits and programme excerpts.
This pictorial selection traces the fortunes of Rovers
from the Eastville Stadium to-the Memorial Ground and
covers events from the early days in the Southern
League (and the winning of the championship in
1904/O5), election to the Football League in 1920, the
Division Three (South) title in 1952/53 and the
promotion seasons of 1973/74 and 1989/9O - not to
mention several epic runs in cup competitions
(including the journey to the sixth round of the FA Cup
in 1951) and some famous victories over the other team
in Bristol. Many of the important characters from the
past are included: famous managers, such as Bert Tann,
Don Megson and Gerry Francis, and outstanding
players, such as Geoff Bradford, Harold ]arman, Alan
Warboys and Gary Mabbutt.
With a foreword by Geoff Dunford, this official
Rovers publication is an essential read for all loyal
Gasheads. Veteran supporters will have many memories
rekindled by these pictures, whilst younger fans can
enjoy the heritage of their famous old club.
