Captain's Letter to Fans...

4 February 2021

Following Tuesday’s defeat at Accrington, Club Captain, Max Ehmer has written the below letter to supporters...

'Dear Gasheads,

We appreciate the support that fans are giving us, albeit from home during these challenging times.

Tuesday’s performance was unacceptable and fell substantially short of what we expect to produce when representing Bristol Rovers. We want to extend a sincere apology to all those who spent their hard-earned money watching us online.

We know many people are missing attending games in person and watching games online offers a form of distraction in these testing times and on Tuesday, we let you down.

While many of us are yet to play in front of a packed out Mem, we still know that the support from all of you at home is as strong as ever.

We understand and respect the responsibility of wearing the blue and white quarters and we are determined to repay your faith in us as players and put in the hard work to turn around the results between now and the end of the season.”

There’s still a lot of football left to be played and we know that only us as players can correct the disappointment from Tuesday’s result.

Just because the stands are empty, it doesn’t mean we don’t feel the anger that a result like Tuesday brings, believe me we do.

We are also hurting and want to put things right.

Thanks for all your support. We hope that very soon, you will be able to get back to the Mem once again.

Stay safe,
