Who are the team of individuals currently in charge of Bristol Rovers?
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at the team of individuals who are moving Bristol Rovers forward.

The President, and Steve Hamer, the Chairman, are the familiar faces but who else is there.
The second individual director under the spotlight is Lee Atkins.
