Bristol Rovers FC have announced that Rodney King, who joined the Bristol Rovers Board of Directors in October 2006, will be relinquishing his position within the club with immediate effect.

A Rovers fan for 40 years, Rod was a successful local business man who financially helped the club out, prior to joining the Board, and then made a substantial investment as a Director. Rod has worked hard, behind the scenes, in trying to help the club move forward.

He has always maintained a low profile and, on his appointment he said; “I am not a high profile person and I will certainly not be airing my views through the media. I believe my energies will best be spent helping to develop the club, both on and off the field.”
