Very Sad News

Jean Shaw, on the left, is pictured here alongside Leanne Hawkins at an away match against Accrington Stanley in October 2013.

Bristol Rovers Supporters Club Committee were very saddened to learn today of the passing of Jean Shaw, a long-standing member of the Supporters Club.

Jean was a ‘fixture’ on our coaches to Rovers away games right up until the very end of her life although she had not been well recently.

In recent years Jean has helped out in the Bristol Room at home games with our coach bookings and 50/50 Draw.

Jean’s husband, Ralph, was our Coach Steward for many years and served on the Committee covering away travel until his death.  Jean was always at his side.

Coach ONE will never be the same again.

Jean will be sorely missed by all who knew her and on behalf of the Committee I wish to express our sincere condolences to Jean’s family and her many friends at Rovers.

Rest in Peace Jean and may you be reunited with your beloved Ralph once more in ‘Rovers Heaven’.

Jim Chappell,

BRSC Chairman.
