Bristol Rovers 125th Anniversary

The social committee is planning an evening showing highlights from the club’s halcyon days in the 1950’s under Bert Tann to kick-off the 125th anniversary celebrations.

It will be held on Friday, November 7, at the Memorial Stadium.

We have some rare vintage footage with highlights including the 4-3 victory over City in the FA Cup at Ashton Gate, a friendly at the Duke of Beaufort’s estate and Rovers players in training 1950’s style.

Several players from the era have been invited to come and talk about their memories such as the 4-0 victory over the Mighty Busby Babes and the year we almost made it to the old First Division. Admission is free. More details to follow.
