Striker Nathan Blissett has today left Bristol Rovers by mutual consent following the end of his loan spell with Lincoln City.
Having scored at The Mem in his final game for Kidderminster Harriers last season the tall, powerful striker joined Rovers, initially on loan, as the club pushed towards potential promotion in its first season outside the Football League.
13 goals in 34 matches with Romulus preceded ten in 36 (+23) Conference games at Kidderminster, where he registered his first two goals in a 2-2 draw at Woking in November 2012. Loan spells at Cambridge, where he scored against Southport and Luton Town in 3 (+4) Conference matches, and Hedensford, where a début goal at Leamington proved the first of three in 5 (+1) Conference North matches, earned the front man a regular start for Harriers.
Goals against Gateshead and Rovers, coupled with a brace against League leaders Barnet, in his 13 (+5) appearances in 2014/15 brought him to the attention of Rovers’ manager Darrell Clarke.
He made a goalscoring debut for Rovers in a 2-2 draw against Chester FC on 22nd November 2014 and ended the campaign with five goals to his name and an appearance at Wembley in the Promotion Play Off Final.
Nathan joined Tranmere Rovers in a one month loan deal on 21st August 2015 and scored once in five league appearances whilst at Prenton Park.
On his return to The Memorial Stadium, he made his Football League debut when going on as a late substitute against Notts County in October 2015 and also made a late cameo appearance against Carlisle United in November.
Nathan signed a one month loan deal with National League side Lincoln City in November 2015 and during his time at Sincil Bank appeared in three league games.
Everyone at Bristol Rovers would like to thank Nathan for his efforts whilst with us and would like to take this opportunity of wishing him all the best for the future.
