BRIS­TOL Rovers chair­man Steve Hamer is be­hind the re­vival of the ex-play­ers’ as­so­ci­a­tion and has been amazed by the re­sponse.

“It has re­ally caught the imag­i­na­tion,” says Hamer, “and they al­ready have a work­ing com­mit­tee and a con­sti­tu­tion in place.”

For the in­au­gu­ral din­ner on Thurs­day, April 27, the num­bers appear to have out­grown the club.

They may have to move the event into a big­ger ho­tel in the cen­tre of the city.

Hamer is hopeful that Gerry Fran­cis, Ian Hol­loway and Ge­off Twen­ty­man will at­tend and has booked leg­endary soc­cer comic Bob “The Cat” Be­van MBE as the en­ter­tainer.

Tick­ets are avail­able from the com­mer­cial de­part­ment at Bris­tol Rovers by call­ing 0117 909 6648 or by email from ker­ryprice@bris­tol­rovers.co.uk.
