Meet Rickie Lambert This Saturday
January 1, 2000
This Saturday’s home match against Rochdale gives Gasheads their first opportunity to meet Rickie Lambert.
Shortly after his move from league two rivals Rochdale, Rickie commented; “Most of the time I’ve been playing football I’ve played in this division, and in all that time Bristol Rovers have been one of the biggest clubs, if not the biggest, I’ve come up against,” “My first thought when I heard about this move was that Bristol Rovers is a big club, and I wanted to be a part of that.
“This is where every player wants to be. You want to play in good atmospheres in front of thousands of fans, it’s what you play football for, and that’s why I’ve come to Bristol Rovers.”
As Rickie’s contract prevents him from appearing against his old club on this occasion, both Lennie Lawrence and Paul Trollop have given their permission for him to take the opportunity to say hello to the Rovers faithful. We are most grateful to Rickie, Paul and Lennie for agreeing to this as it is exactly the sort of event that bonded Gasheads with their idols in years gone by but has been sadly missing in recent times.
Ricky will be present in the Bristol room between 1 and 1-30pm where he will be happy to sign autographs etc.
As a special offer to mark his arrival at the club, with each replica shirt bought this Saturday Ricky will sign the shirt and we will add his name and squad number completely free of charge. The usual cost of this is £9.50. This offer is for one day only, so don’t miss out!
The Bristol room is located behind the Bass end and is next to the Supporters Club members bar.
