Statement | Keith Brookman

26 July 2018

The club's Head of Media Keith Brookman has left the club, after a dedicated and passionate 21 years of service.

Keith originally began as a programme contributor from about 1992, producing content for every edition up until 1997, at which point he became a full-time Rovers employee under the role of programme editor.

He later took on the roles of summarising on BBC Radio Bristol and becoming the club's Press Officer/Head of Media.

Keith built up an esteemed reputation for producing an award-winning matchday programme, increasing the content from 48 pages to 64 and then to 84.

He also worked very closely with the first team, travelling with them to all away games and acting as an unofficial player and staff liaison officer, assisting with tickets, travel and food.

As a result, Keith was the main port for communications between Darrell Clarke and the press, whilst also interviewing the Manager himself countless times for the matchday programme and website.

Darrell had this to say on Keith's departure from his position at the club; "Keith was an integral part of the staff at here at the club and you'd struggle to find someone with more commitment and love for Bristol Rovers.

"He's been here ever since I started working at the club and he will be sorely missed by everyone at the Memorial Stadium.

"He's become a personal friend of mine in the time that I've been here and it'll certainly remain that way despite his departure.

"We all wish him well for the future and hope to see him back at the Mem as a fan at some point."

The club would like to extend it's greatest thanks for all of Keith's hard work and effort over the years and wish him well for the future.
