Rovers Double Scoop Prizes at Bristol Post Sports Awards

19 October 2017

Bristol Rovers pair Darrell Clarke and Tom Lockyer scooped two prizes at last night's Bristol Post's Sports Awards.

DC secured the prize for Professional Coach of the Year, beating Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson and former Bristol Rugby coach and now chief operating officer Mark Tainton.

Darrell won the award based on Rovers’ successful first season back in League One and picking up the highest points total in the third tier for 17 years.

Whereas Rovers skipper Tom Lockyer claimed the Male Sports Personality of the Year award beating Billy Bodin and Bristol City’s Bobby Reid.

Lockyer was ever present during Rovers’ successful return to League One. His consistent form over the past few seasons has also seen him gain recognition with the Wales national side.

Upon receiving their awards, Rovers boss Darrell Clarke said: "Myself and Tom were delighted to pick up our respective awards and would like to thank all of those that voted for us and the Bristol Post for organising the evening".
