Feeling Blue? and White

Ourselves and the Bristol Rovers Community Trust are jointly hosting a mental health awareness evening on Wednesday 14 November at the Memorial Stadium and we’d like you to come along.  Yes, we want you.

It’s going to be an enjoyable evening to promote personal wellbeing and to tackle the stigma surrounding mental health.

Bristol Rovers are committed to supporting the people within its local community and offer opportunities to make a positive impact on their lives.

As you may be aware mental health is a topic that is still rarely spoken about within professional sport, particularly within football.  As the number one sport in this country Bristol Rovers believe it is vitally important that football takes a lead on tackling the taboos that surround mental health.

This is a FREE event, with a suggested donation of £5 which will enter you into a prize draw.   There will be a free buffet on offer and the bar will be open to purchase drinks.

All we need now is you, Yes, You, to come along. 

We’d love to see You there!

First there will be interviews with four of the squad, led by Keith Brookman and Tony Mills, where our quartet of legends will reveal the inside story of how they came to be at Rovers and just how that season transpired.   Then, in a Q&A session, they will answer questions from you, the Gasheads and Pirates who faithfully followed them.

The star quartet for this special night will be top scorer David ‘Boris’ Mehew, midfield enforcer Andy Reece, target man Devon ‘Bruno’ White and defensive rock Steve ‘Scooter’ Yates.

Other players from the squad, including BRFPA President Billy Clark, will be around to chip in as well, and several more will be added to our guest list soon.

BRFC Programme Articles

As part of our partnership with BRFC, and as a way for the Former Players Association to keep in touch with the fans and the former players, we write a dedicated page for each official BRFC EFL matchday programme; which is still a bargain at £3.

We’ll also add some of them to a new page on our website after the game – HERE

Please tell us what you think of them and what you’d like us to focus on in the future.

Meanwhile, here’s an example of how lovely they look…
