Take a look back at some the stories from the Mem you may have missed this week.

The Club announced earlier this week a special offer to all Service Men & Women for this weekend's game with MK Dons.

The offer allows Service Men & Women the opportunity to attend Saturday's match for free with production of their military ID Card (one ticket per ID Card). Tickets are for the North & East Terrace (subject to availability) on production of the ID Card at the clubs matchday Ticket Office.

The Remembrance fixtures that will take place on the 19th have been scheduled as part of #EFLRemembers to commemorate the centenary of the end of the Battle of the Somme which ended 100 years ago on 18th Nov 1916. 

Part of the Nick Kicks feature they filmed when visiting the training ground last month, take a watch as Matty Taylor took on Manager  Darrell Clarke in the 'Beat the Boss' challenge.

A 4-2 victory over Crawley Town at the Mem ensured that Rovers progressed to the second round of this year's competition. Braces from Matty Taylor and Rory Gaffney secured the win for the Gas to set up a second round tie against Barrow at the Mem.

The Rovers players will wear poppies for this weekend's fixture against MK Dons.

To raise funds for The Royal British Legion, the club will be auctioning off a signed match worn Bristol Rovers poppy shirt and poppy football, so look out for further details regarding the auction next week.

On Tuesday evening fans and players paid tribute to former player, Ray Mabbutt.

A minute's applause took place prior to the game, with the Rovers players wearing black armbands for the fixture. 

Ray, who was eighty years old at the time of his death following a heart attack, will be missed by everyone at Bristol Rovers Football Club and we send our condolences to his family and friends. 

We will be inviting Ray’s family to a future home game, when we will pay tribute to him in our matchday programme.
