RIP Kitty Thorne

5 January 2019

Everyone at Bristol Rovers is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of the club's longest standing supporter, Kitty Thorne, aged 104.

Kitty's support for Rovers began in 1954 and she continually followed the club with consistency and loyalty right up until now.

Her journey backing The Gas varies from attending games via steam train many years ago, to taking up her seat in the West Stand at the Mem in recent times, from which she will be sorely missed.

She won the Supporter of the Year award last season for her dedication to Rovers over the years and the club hopes to liaise with her family to enable all fellow Gasheads to pay their respects. 

The club offers its deepest condolences to Kitty's family and friends; she will remain a cherished part of the club's history for years to come.
