Wayne Powell receives his Cap

Feb 20, 2023 | Cap Initiative, News

On Saturday, at the game against Burton Albion, we were pleased to be able to present former Rovers striker Wayne Powell with his cap to commemorate his league debut for Rovers on 24th October 1975.

He became the 434th player to represent the club in the Football League and received his cap from Supporters Club Director Helen Wigmore.

Helen is pictured with Wayne, as is Bunny Harris, an old friend of Wayne’s who sponsored his cap.

We received this message from Wayne following the presentation; ‘Thanks for your help Keith, an enjoyable day, except for the game . So many complimentary comments from supporters so humbling . Great to catch up with Bunny and his family. Thanks again.’
