In Search of Gas

With your wonderful armchair traveller, Keith Brookman.

From Gareth Taylor to Keith Curle, and even Andy Bond to Jefferson Louis, this new project is an attempt to track down as many former Rovers players, who are still involved in the game, as possible and give you Gasheads a weekly fix of former player news, plus snippets of Keith’s memories of them.

Most will have played first team football for Rovers in the past, while others are still contracted to The Gas, but either out on loan or work experience.

What began as something to do on the opening day of the 2018/19 season, became a little bit of an obsession for former Rovers Head of Media Keith Brookman, as you will see from his weekly updates!

The latest instalment will always be on our main ‘In Search of Gas’ page HERE, with the rest of the season archived in two month chunks (see the sub-pages under the ‘In Search of Gas’ heading).

A lovely photo from the Brookman archive will also accompany each article, such as the one below of a young Ryan Clarke in the bootroom.

Any omissions from a list of players with Rovers connections is not deliberate; it’s just that there are so many it’s difficult to keep track of them all!
