Obituary: Steve Sherborne

Feb 4, 2019 | News

Very sadly I have to report the passing of former Supporters Club Committee member Steve Sherborne who died last Thursday, 31st January.

Steve has not been able to attend matches due to illness for several years but was a very active member of the club prior to that. He will be best remembered in recent years as Phil Draper’s results-checker in our General Knowledge Quizes where he was colloquially known as the ‘Glamorous Assistant’ – a title and term of endearment to which he never objected!

Way back several decades Steve was heavilly involved in the Supporters Club’s Football Team that was a founder member of the Bristol Sunday Football League and was a valuable member of our ‘Pirates’ skittles team that competed here in the old Bristol & District League. Steve travelled all over the country in support of the Rovers and will be greatly missed by all senior members of the Supporters Club and former members of the ‘Pirates’.

Steve’s funeral will take place at 11.15 on Wednesday, 27th February at South Bristol Crematorium – all ”Gasheads’ welcome!

Jim Chappell.
