Striker returns to celebrate £1million mark with the club.
Former Bristol Rovers favourite Andy Rammell will be back at the Memorial Stadium today to join the Bristol Rovers Supporters Club Share Scheme members as they celebrate reaching the £1million mark.
The Share Scheme was launched in December 2002. At that time Rovers were bottom of League Two.
Thanks to the Share Scheme, Bristol Rovers were able to purchase striker Andy Rammell from Wycombe Wanderers in March 2003. Andy’s contribution was magnificent as he went on to score four vital goals in Rovers last three games to help them avoid relegation and the Conference by 3 points.
Thanks to the Share Scheme Bristol Rovers Supporters Club hold a 3.83% of allocated shares with the club. This has enabled the Supporters Club to obtain two members on the Bristol Rovers Board. These current members are Ken Masters and Brian Seymour-Smith.
Under the Share Scheme agreement, the Supporters Club can purchase two shares for £5.50.
Fans can contribute to the Share Scheme via one of 4 options:-
1. Bronze at £10.83 per month per month
2. Silver at £21.67 per month per month
3. Gold at £43.34 per month per month
4. Platinum at £83.34 per month per month
Benefits include discounts on leisurewear, complimentary match tickets with meals and season ticket discounts as well as free membership to the Supporters Club.
Brian Seymour-Smith, Share Scheme Chairman, said; “What a very different climate we are in today. No one then could have imagined the progress that would be made thanks to the efforts of everyone involved in the Share Scheme and when it was launched.”
“The money they have raised has been used to help develop the Youth Scheme at Bristol Rovers which is reaping the benefits with so many youngsters now playing a key role in the 1st Team. Bristol Rovers Fcan look to the future with excitement and anticipation of greater things ahead.”
