The Good and the Bad.

Artur Krysiak during his recent Man of the Match performance for Yeovil Town against Bristol Rovers

Our recent match at Yeovil Town was one of the most one-sided matches I have ever seen Bristol Rovers involved in.

Yeovil Town’s ‘keeper Artur Krysiak is rightly being credited for a string of brilliant saves that kept a rampant Bristol Rovers at bay right up until the dying minutes of a pulsating performance.

It’s always nice though when a great goal decides a game and that could certainly be said of Ellis Harrison’s 87th minute volley in front of the massed ranks of ‘Gas’ behind the visitor’s net.

Ellis Harrison was one of three former Academy players to play well at Huish Park and the BRSC is proud to have played a part in their development thanks to our 50/50 Draw so a big ‘thank-you’ to those of you who continue to buy our tickets every week.

The proof is in the pudding as they say. The other two former youth lads, Tom Lockyer and Ollie Clarke, both had to make way eventually to allow Darrell Clarke to substitute them with the two wingers who eventually just provided enough crosses to sink Yeovil Town’s great rearguard resistance.

For me there was though one disappointing moment at Huish Park and that was the throwing onto the pitch of another lighted flare from the terraces just after Ellis’s goal.

Such incidents have to be reported to the Home Office so Bristol Rovers are getting a very bad name at the present time and sanctions against us will follow if it does not stop.

If you know the identity of those concerned then please let us know or at least dissuade him or her from throwing anything else.
