Bristol Rovers Supporters Club is sorry to learn of the death of Bernard Brain.

Bernard was a highly respected former Headteacher at St Teresa’s School. Under Bernard’s leadership St Teresa’s was the first participating school in the Sam Learning Project. The project comprised collaborative work involving Bristol Rovers Football in the Community led by Peter Aitken and the Bristol Rovers Playing for Success Learning Centre whose teacher was Becky Hunter, now married to former Rovers Manager Paul Trollope. The project was funded by on line learning company Sam Learning Limited where Ken Masters was Director. Bernard later joined Ken on the Board of Trustees at the Bristol Rovers Community Trust.

Bernard was an avid supporter of Bristol Rovers Football Club and Gloucestershire County Cricket Club; he will be sorely missed.
