Golden memories in the summer sunshine as Bristol Rovers beat Wolves, Burnley and Sheffield United to win a fondly recalled competition which, at the time, enjoyed a high profile, which was reflected in the fact that the final was on Match of the Day. This video includes highlights of every game in the 8-team tournament, which also included Blackpool, Notts County, Lincoln City and Peterborough United. The climax is a final in front of 20,000 fans at Eastville, when the late Dick Sheppard proved the hero in a penalty shoot-out., to secure a national trophy for the first time in Rovers’ history.
