Bristol Rovers Archive
Last summer Rovers programme editor Keith Brookman produced a well received publication titled ‘The Bristol Rovers Archive’ which covered the period 1951 – 1991.
Containing a total of 92 black and white images from that period, with detailed descriptions of each one, the book sold very well in Pirate Leisure and in retail outlets throughout the city and online.
Keith has now produced a second volume, covering the decade 1991 – 2001, and this volume contains 100 colour images and descriptions.
It’s a decade in which so much happened and the book, while offering a tantalising glimpse of some of the players and managers who served the club during this time, leaves scope for a further volume at some point in the future.
The ten years in question saw two relegations, an appearance in a Wembley play off final and several changes of manager.
More importantly, it saw the end of a ten year exile in Bath and a return to Bristol to a ground the club would eventually own.
Hopefully, every Rovers supporter will find something of interest in this book (priced at £9.99 from Pirate Leisure) and it’s sure to stir memories of games they may have watched during the period in question.
Once again, Keith has collaborated with former club photographer Alan Marshall to bring you a fascinating book covering a brief spell in the history of Bristol’s oldest professional football club.
It is hope to hold an official launch of the book before the Northampton game on 31st August and Keith is in the process of inviting some former players along to that game.
