Author: Stephen Byrne, Mike Jay

BRISTOL ROVERS: THE OFFICIAL HISTORY is an up-to-date and definitive historical record of Bristol Rovers Football Club, relating the story of the club from its origins in 1883, through the glory years and tougher times, to where it is today. Emphasis is placed on why the club started, who the figureheads of the club were at various points in its long history, how two World Wars were survived and how the club lived through exile in Bath to return to its home patch. No football club simply starts, and no club can be where it is today without a wealth of stories and a plethora of anecdotal incidents. Stephen Byrne’s informative text illustrates how all this came to pass, while Mike Jay’s carefully constructed seasonal charts add statistical weight to the history. The book also features a full-colour picture section, bringing to life the many players, fans, trials and triumphs of this great club.
