Rovers PFA welcome supporters to Blue Diamond Club lunch

It is not essential to be retired or a long-standing Bristol Rovers supporter but, in all honesty, when attending a Blue Diamond Lunch it can be a big help!

Eastwood Park, a large county hosue set in 200 acres of South Gloucestershire countryside, played host to the most recent gathering of supporters and their partners, who met up for a leisurely lunch at the venue as guests of the Bristol Rovers PFA.

The gathering saw over 50 people attend on the sunny, Spring day for the lunch, with former Rovers players Peter Aitken and Tom Stanton entertaining those in attendance with stories from their respective time playing for the Club.

Stories of games and players past and present were shared told and retold by all on an enjoyable afternoon, with many of those present following the fortunes of Bristol’s oldest football club for over 50 years. One stalwart of the events has even been attending matches for 75 years!

Lunch was accompanied by a guest speaker in Ursula Sullivan from the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity, who discussed the Charity's work and fund-raising efforts. A raffle was also run, raising £450, with the proceeds donated to the speaker's chosen charity.

Plans are already in development for the Autumn and Christmas dinner events, and supporters wishing to know more can get more information from either Tony Mills or Mo Bell here!
