06012023 Nick Head Shave

Bristol Rovers players and staff will be shaving their heads on the 16th of January in support of team-mate and promotion hero Nick Anderton as he battles a rare form of bone cancer.

Club captain Paul Coutts said: "We’ve always been as one in support of Nick. In the blink of an eye, his world's been turned upside down and this is another way that we can help raise awareness of his condition and raise valuable funds for him and his young family at the same time.
"Some of us have less hair to lose than others and I’m sure Nick’s looking forward to seeing his mates and the gaffer without any!"

The players will go bald on the 16th - Nick's shirt number - of this month at a Bristol hairdresser who supports rivals City and not Rovers, further proof that the footballing and city communities are coming together to offer their support. 
Rovers - and football - fans are also invited to shave their own head in solidarity.
You can make a donation HERE - all funds raised will go to Nick and his young family.
