Rovers Return (2 DVDs)
A record Conference Playoff final crowd of 47,029 witnessed arguably the most important match in Bristol Rovers’ history, as the Pirates became the first team to reclaim Football League status at the first attempt for ten years. After two relegations in the previous four seasons, including the most dreaded drop of all, Darrell Clarke completed a remarkable transformation of the club, following the depths of that final day heartache against Mansfield Town the previous year. 

The Screen Soccer team liaised with BT Sport to capture their excellent multi-camera coverage of the game, and added Dave Rogers’ commentary, which occasionally has a partisan flavour. The emotional explosion at the end is something that none of us who were there will ever forget, and if you weren’t at Wembley this DVD will be the next best thing.

Disc 1: The full 90 minutes as Rovers and Grimsby stood toe-to-toe in an engrossing final, between two teams steeped in Football League history, who finished second and third respectively. After a rocky start, Rovers recovered well to equalise with Ellis Harrison’s 17th goal of a superb season for the young striker, and there were big refereeing decisions at both ends which had a major impact on the outcome.

Disc 2: The heart-stopping drama of extra-time and the almost unbearable penalty shoot-out, as Chris Lines, Matty Taylor, Lee Brown, Angelo Balanta and Lee Mansell carved themselves into Rovers’ history by netting from the spot to seal Rovers’ promotion, with a 5-3 victory. Plus exclusive interviews with the mastermind behind Rovers’ recovery, Darrell Clarke, along with elated players Mansell, Taylor, Ellis Harrison and Tom Lockyer. You will also enjoy bonus footage of the open-top bus tour around Rovers’ East Bristol heartland.

Also available: ‘TRUE BLUE: The Road To Wembley, 2015’ (the story of Bristol Rovers’ only Conference season, from the first match to the playoff semi-final win over Forest Green)
