It was with great pride that I watched Tom Lockyer lead the team out at Gigg Lane and to mark his 200 games for Bristol Rovers at first team level. It is not so long ago that Jim and I were at Cribbs and other venues and in all weathers to appreciate Tom’s special talent when he so admirably skippered the then under 18’s to a double League and Cup success.
Tom is a fine example to all of our Academy and younger players. Tom’s work in the community does not go unnoticed either. Tom is a fine young footballer and a fine young man; well done Tom Lockyer.
