22122022 New Club Secretary

Bristol Rovers is pleased to announce the appointment of Jack Tomlinson as the club’s new secretary.

At twenty-one years of age, Jack is the youngest secretary in the entire football league, but has already amassed experience in the same role at Oldham Athletic and Swindon Town.

In his role, Jack will be responsible for an array of tasks, such as pre-match preparation, organising player travel and accommodation, ticketing, EFL compliance – including documentation, announcements and that all-important transfer paperwork – as well as general admin and everything required to ensure Rovers is run as efficiently as possible.

Jack, who hails from The Wirral, said: “I’m really looking forward to getting started at Rovers. Once I got a call to come in and have a chat about the role, everything moved quickly. There will be a lot to get done, taking over from the previous Club Secretary, who had been in the role for over 20 years so, hopefully, I can bring a modern way of working into the club with new ideas.”


Rovers CEO Tom Gorringe said: “We are delighted for Jack to be joining us. He fits the culture that we are trying to create here perfectly and his energy, experience and desire to push for continual improvement will no doubt benefit our football administration.

"Despite his age, Jack has a wealth of experience and has already shown his value in his first week of service. Jack will no doubt be a big asset for the club over the coming years and I am sure you will all join me in welcoming him to the club and wishing him the best in his new role.”
