The Future is Blue and White! (2 DVDs)
Product ID: 16119
Duration: 3 hrs. 15 mins. (approx.)

Details 

AVAILABLE NOW!

This double-disc, 3hr. souvenir DVD features action from every single game, home and away, of the 2015-16 season, and tells the full story of how Rovers achieved only the fourth automatic promotion in their history.

There were outstanding performances throughout the team, from the excellent Steve Mildenhall in goal and the resilience of Tom Lockyer to the style and vision of Chris Lines. The mercurial Billy Bodin put his injury-hit past behind him to dazzle Gasheads with his skills and contribute a hefty thirteen goals. Naturally, Matty Taylor deserves a special mention: the League Two Golden Boot winner scored 28 goals in all competitions, a tally only beaten at Rovers in the last half-century by Rickie Lambert when he netted 29 in 2008-09.

Browner's Right Foot!
Product ID: 16129
Duration: 110 mins.

Details 

On May 7th 2016, Bristol Rovers' manager Darrell Clarke knew that a home win against relegated Dagenham & Redbridge was a minimum requirement in order to achieve a top three finish. Even then, the Pirates needed help from elsewhere, something which had rarely been forthcoming in the past. Should either Accrington Stanley or Oxford United fail to win their final match, a Rovers victory in front of over 11,000 fans at a frenzied Memorial Stadium would secure back-to-back promotions for the first time in the club’s history.

This DVD features the full 90 minutes, plus post-match celebrations as Rovers won promotion in Bristol for the first time since 1953.
