The Official Bristol Rovers Former Players Association (BRFPA) is about to enter its 4th year.
It is independent of the football club but has benefited from a lot of support from the club including them organising and hosting the inaugural ‘Former Players Dinner’ on 27th April 2017 at The Memorial Stadium.
The Association primarily aims to promote the history and heritage of BRFC and to foster the spirit of fellowship, sportsmanship and goodwill among former players and supporters.
The Association will also endeavour to help ex-players and ex-team staff in practical and financial ways when needed. There are a number of examples of them having done this.
Have a look at their website - www.brfpa.org.uk - and keep in touch with all the latest news and events by joining them on Facebook and Twitter.
The 4th Annual Dinner is to be held at the Memorial Stadium on 26th March 2020 and the Annual Golf Day in June. These are always highly enjoyable events and attended by many former players and first team staff.
Billy Clark has agreed to be the first ever BRFPA President. Billy will be involved in as many BRFPA events as possible and will be their figurehead: a fine example of loyalty and determination.
