BRIS­TOL Rovers de­fender Lee Brown is over­whelmed with mes­sages of sup­port he re­ceived af­ter an­nounc­ing his de­par­ture from the club.

The 27-year-old joined the Pi­rates in 2011 and scored 21 goals in 284 league ap­pear­ances, in­clud­ing a stop­page-time ef­fort which sealed pro­mo­tion in 2016.

“It’s been emo­tional see­ing all the mes­sages and try­ing to read through them,” he said. “There are so many thank-yous and good luck mes­sages and it means a lot.

“Some­times you for­get what you’ve been given, but we’ve had some fan­tas­tic mem­o­ries.”
