Cap presentations

Mar 6, 2023 | Cap Initiative, News

I’m sure you will, by now, be aware that we are backing an initiative to present a cap to every player who has appeared in at least one league match for Bristol Rovers and we are extremely grateful for the support we have received from everyone for this scheme to date.

Many of you have enquired how you go about sponsoring a cap for members of the current squad and to be honest, it couldn’t be simpler. Sponsorship costs £50 for members and £60 for non members and if you contact our secretary by emailing him at, advising him of the name of the player you would like to sponsor, you will be told how to proceed.

We are delighted to announce that the current squad will be presented with their caps, by our Supporters Club Directors Helen Wigmore and Steve Lamble, on Thursday 20th April at the club’s training ground and the closing date for sponsorships is Friday 14th April.

We also hope to have more cap presentations at some of our remaining home games, including one for a former favourite striker, Archie Stephens. If you would like to sponsor Archie’s cap, or those of Steve Badock, Steve Bailey or Micky Slocombe, then please note that the cut off date is next Tuesday, 14th March.

We also intend to present a cap to James Walker, at his benefit match in May. You might recall that we told you that he now needs full time care following a heart attack in 2019.
