Rovers sign not one but two keepers

July 6, 2017

It’s been well documented, in the local media, that the club seemed likely to begin their pre- season programme without an experienced shot stopper…how wrong they were! Rovers’ manager Darrell Clarke today signed not one, but two goalkeepers, bringing Sam Slocombe and Adam Smith to the club.

Sam told bristolrovers.co.uk ; “It’s good to be here and to get everything signed.

“It’s another good signing today with the arrival of Adam, so that will hopefully lead to good competition and a good goalkeepers union at the Club.

“I have always thought that good competition brings out the best in you and pushes you that little bit harder.”

Meanwhile Adam said; “The deal has come about pretty quickly really and once the Manager spoke to me it was an obvious choice for me to make”..

“It’s a great Club and Darrell has said great things about it and the squad, so it ticks all the boxes really.”

Darrell had this to say about his two new signings; “I am delighted to be signing two excellent goalkeepers who will provide us with competition for the number one spot next season.

“Both have experience of playing at this level and they have different attributes which means they will complement each other.

“I’m sure that our supporters will welcome the news that we have signed these two players today and I’m certain that they will give them their backing throughout the season.”
