(single word yields best result)

Lee Mansell has signed for Bristol Rovers after rejecting a new contract at Torquay United.


Having narrowly missed out to former rivals bristol city in signing the highly rated luke freeman, rovers will now turn there attention to tying up a deal for another unnamed gloucester city player [also believed to be a left midfielder/winger like freeman]

Alex Smith released by Swindon in talks with Bristol Rovers


22 Jun 2014 21:31:36
Swindon looking to sell wes our keeper to generate money, also change on the coaching staff, Fraser Digby the goalkeeping coach is no longer the coach, power has given the job to Steve hale, a lad that has never done anything in football or played at a descent level cheap cheap option, what ambition is that, no new signings As we have no money,wes will kick off about this,certain relegation for us this season what a joke,power is trying to keep this under wraps and don't want the press and fans to know as they will respond with negativity .

Swindon Yid

We haven't got any money? Yes, we do and we have plenty to spend and Wes will not leave Swindon as that would be suicidal to our success. Power has worked hard for Swindon to find us new a new sponsorship deal and he has and worth more than the samsung deal for miles. £250,000>£79,000 fraser digby as I have heard is not working for money but is working voluntarrly


24 Jun 2014 07:26:56
Swindon to fight against Leeds over the capture of Andre Blackman, who has spent time at clubs like Dover.


Wake up and smell the coffee Fraser was getting paid, we haven't got a pot to .... in fact, power is looking to off load wes to raise money just look at how many players have gone of which is good balancing the books? How many have come in big fat 0 Steve hale is taking over from Fraser of which wes will not be happy about, a deal was nearly done with Bournemouth last season but fell through, power will sell the club in a years time fact we will struggle this season as he is cutting to many corners with regards wages of which was needed but it will be to much with no quality coming in as we can't afford to pay the wages. no Fraser do you??!

Swindon Yid

28 Jun 2014 10:53:38
Swindon Yid why do you say Wes will be fuming? Do you actually know him?

I would imagine the club can't make any signings until the court case is sorted


Yes, and he will be unhappy with Steve hale coaching him as Fraser has been pushed upstairs to hospitality.

Swindon Yid

28 Jun 2014 17:37:44
When did he tell you this then?

Who says Fraser has been pushed upstairs?


28 Jun 2014 18:04:44
I am inclined to disagree with you, everyone knows Fraser has a lot on his plate and has just taken on a restaurant. I'm sure he wants to focus on that and help the club out commercially.

I'm also sure the powers that be (pardon the pun) will have consulted The manager and goalkeepers about who a suitable replacement would be.




13 Jun 2014 19:07:01
Adam Mekki is being tracked by Bristol Rovers after leaving Aldershot Town.




10 Jun 2014 21:20:45
Chesterfield are looking at a number of strikers to bring to the club.
Shaun Miller is still the main target but the others on the radar include Jon Parkin, Micheal Higdon, Gary Madine and Billy Clarke.
Also Bristol Rovers pair Brunt and O'Toole are on Paul Cook's wish list!




08 Jun 2014 23:14:50
York City manager Nigel Worthington is considering a move for Bristol Rovers right-back Michael Smith. Smith is reported to be wanting out due to relegation, and a mix of his outstanding form this season (gained a place in the league 2 team of the year) and his Northern Irish roots Worthington sees him as a worthy replacement for the departed Lanre Oyebanjo.


Smith is interesting Brentford, Peterborough and Barnsley so I can't see that happening




04 Jun 2014 16:15:15
Cheltenham are set to sign Bristol Rovers goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall.




02 Jun 2014 20:38:36
Bristol Rovers are set to unveil their first summer signings in the coming days. Anthony Sweeney will be unveiled as player/coach on a 2 year deal from Hartlepool.

Prolific Salisbury City striker Jamie White will also join the pirates on a 2 year deal. Rovers have also agreed a deal to bring Matty Taylor (Forest Green and England C) to The Memorial Stadium after a fee was agreed by the 2 clubs.

Ex-pirate Joe Anyinsah also looks set to re-join Rovers on a 1 year contract from Wrexham.




30 May 2014 17:58:20
Chesterfield interested in signing Bristol Rovers striker Ryan Brunt - Swindon also rumoured to be interested.
However any deal will be subject to the player proving his fitness.




29 May 2014 11:44:40
Southend boss Phil Brown has once again confirmed his interest in Bristol Rovers midfielder John-Joe O'Toole. Brown was after him at the start of the 13/14 campaign, but O'Toole opted for a move to the Memorial Stadium. But following the clubs relegation this term, John-Joe is rumoured to want away from the now Conference Premier side.

Brentford have rekindled their interest in Bristol Rovers defender Tom Parkes. Bees boss Mark Warburton is hopeful of adding as many as three new faces to his newly-promoted squad in the next few weeks. On Warburton's summer shopping list is a left-sided defender, box-to-box midfielder and a striker as he tries to bolster his ranks for the Championship campaign. Brentford looked at Parkes last summer but failed to follow up their interest with a concrete offer. However, the 22-year-old, who came through the same Leicester City academy side as Warburton's son, Jack, has continued to catch the eye for the Gas this term. Parkes still has two years to run on his deal at the Memorial Ground, where he has racked up more than 100 appearances


21 May 2014 14:23:05
James Constable leaving Oxford. Good at Conference level but has not been prolific for Oxford.

Bristol Rovers talking with Ryan Bowman.

Tom Parkes talking with Brentford.

Somerset Blue Nose



19 May 2014 20:21:09
Hearing a lot that Brentford are looking at Tom Parkes of Bristol Rovers. Apparently Warbs is interested as he is very versatile. However only being 22 and Bristol rovers captain, he may be difficult to get. Also andy Keogh and Chris Basham being linked who are both out of contract


20 May 2014 09:36:58
How many times does it have to be said that Brentford are not interested in a Bristol Rovers centre back. They have just been relegated from League 2! Last season we were linked to Parkes but this summer, not a chance.




14 May 2014 12:17:38
Bristol Rovers trying to agree terms with Jack Midson and Jamie White.

Port Vale are interested in Tom Parkes and MK Dons are planning a move for Michael Smith. Both of these will be fee based.

13 May 2014 17:43:11
Newly-relegated Bristol Rovers to table a 5 figure bid for Stevenage striker Lucas Akins, with Matt Harrold going the other way as the makeweight in the deal.


Is each of the 5 figures a zero?!




10 May 2014 09:28:48
Walsall said to be monitering Dean Leacock as a possible replacement for Andy Butler, but Dean Smith hasn't ruled out signing both. The Saddlers are also keen on experienced 28 year old front man Steven Gillespie following his release by Bristol Rovers.


You don't want him, honest, he's crap.




08 May 2014 12:07:03
Fleetwood are planning a double raid on Bristol Rovers pair Jon Joe O'Toole and Michael Smith. Expect a deal to be announced shortly.

nick higgs in talks with a consortium from texas, usa, about possible sale of club. massive oppurtunity for us, we would become the AC milan of the conference. utg.

Hearing the same thing.


{Ed003's Note - Not surprising really seeing as you posted it.}



06 May 2014 22:10:41
Adam Le Fondre linked to Bristol City in 750k summer move. Louis Carey looks set to join newly relegated Bristol Rovers on one year deal with coaching role. Also former City manager Sean O'Driscoll set to join as part of restructured management team.


The most RIDICULOUS rumour I have ever seen! Carey is City through and through, he'd never join Rovers


07 May 2014 15:38:27

{Ed029's Note - For £750,000? You will want to double that at least.



06 May 2014 10:26:50
The rumours are flying about in the lower leagues:

James Constable Oxford to Rotherham or Swindon Town
Brett Williams Aldershot to Plymouth Argyle
Andre Grey Luton to Coventry or Spersonhrope
Jake Hyde Barnet to Wimbledon or Burton Albion
Matt Paterson Aldershot to Burton Albion or Bristol Rovers
Lee Gregory Halifax to Huddersfield
Sam Winnall Scunthorpe to Brentford
Luke Ayling Yeovil to Watford
Dan Bentley Southend to Peterborough
Reece Styche FGR to Barnet


06 May 2014 13:25:02
Luke Ayling would be a good asset for Watford. Talented 22 year old defender

Danny Kedwell Gillingham to Wimbledon


06 May 2014 20:48:38
I have heard Scunthorpe (the team I support)have 3 main transfers targets in the summer will hoskins, o, toole and andy butler is there any truth to theses rumours. Is there any more targets that I don't know. And who do you think will leave scunny in the summer.

James Constable to Rotherham or Swindon, it really is silly season. Not good enough for League 2 let alone League 1.


06 May 2014 22:54:11
With Rovers letting 15 players go, and of the retained players, at least 8 players will be moving on to clubs in league 1 or 2 there is going to be a major rebuild at the mem - Luton and Wrexham had 29 and 27 players for the season 2013/14 so Rovers to have any chance to return to league two next year - in time for the new ground - I make that they will need to sign at least 24 players? and I can't see that happening -I hope it does. let's hope the players they sign are better then the last 3 years as the football at the MEM has been the worst I have seen in over 40years of supporting the club, Come on Rovers let's get back to 10 years ago were we were heading up the league and not down

07 May 2014 09:46:44
Watford have taken an interest once again in Reece Wabara who recently left Manchester City.

07 May 2014 17:27:23
please can anyone tell me who watford are trying to sign please.

We are trying to sign according to the Watford local paper, Matej Vydra most probably a season long loan and sign Daniel Tozser on a permanent contract




04 May 2014 16:20:54
Plymouth Argyle Summers signings will be

Johnjo O'Toole
Lee Cox
Jake Hyde
Tope Obadeyi
Matt Harold

All these players will be targets for Plymouth Argyle.
Tope and Lee have been at Plymouth befor on loan spells. Matt Harold and O'Toole will be leaving Bristol Rovers and Jake Hyde is on the transfer list at Barnet.




28 Apr 2014 01:14:46
League Two Team of the Year: Tommy Lee (Chesterfield), Michael Smith (Bristol Rovers), Ian Evatt (Chesterfield), Liam Cooper (Chesterfield), Michael Rose (Rochdale), John-Joe O'Toole (Bristol Rovers), Antoni Sarcevic (Fleetwood), Gary Roberts (Chesterfield), Ian Henderson (Rochdale), Sam Winnall (Scunthorpe), Scott Hogan (Rochdale).

Ed 003

28 Apr 2014 18:03:27
Not a bad choice. This team would do well in league one.

29 Apr 2014 22:12:55
Two top players at Bristol Rovers, well done to those players. A Club of this stature should be performing to a much much better standard.



28 Mar 2014 11:10:15
Ex Bristol City boss Sean O'Driscoll is to take over from John Ward as Manager of Bristol Rovers


Oh we do hope so.


02 Apr 2014 09:47:56
Bristol Rovers still not sure on managers job Clarke in charge till the end of season wait and see could be some BIG news soon. Could be a big move of players out of the MEM -out will go Clarkson, Gillespie, Harrold, Peterson, Woodwards, and some fridge players to. Its got to change as over the last two seasons its been proved we are just not good enough.



25 Feb 2014 17:15:34
John Joe O'Toole to leave Bristol Rovers at the end of the season as Rovers inability to challenge at the right end of the table has triggered a release clause in his contract.

Alan Gow will sign a two year deal though.

Somerset Blue Nose

27 Feb 2014 18:46:32
If John Joe O'Toole leaves Bristol Rovers at the end of season they will be in for Torquays midfielder Lee Mansell he almost joined Rovers two years ago for more inside information

Oxford United might be interested




11 Feb 2014 22:03:36
Bristol Rovers still keen on Dominic Poleon until the end of the season.

Alan Gow will be offered a new two year deal at the end of the season.

Somerset Blue Nose



26 Jan 2014 09:13:37
Talk on the terraces at the Mem yesterday that Bristol Rovers are close to bringing in a new striker.

There is an outside chance that Danny Haynes will come in on loan with a view to a permanent deal next season if all goes well.

Freddie Sears from Colchester is a real possibility and both BRFC and CUFC have talked about contribution of wages.

Favourite call remains for a Championship reserve striker though. expect a deal done late in the window.

Somerset Blue Nose



22 Jan 2014 08:51:35
Burton Albion to bring in two strikers from last season's squad to help with their goalscoring problems. Calvin Zola now Aberdeen and Matt Paterson currently at Aldershot are on Gary Rowett's radar, he desperately needs the extra firepower as although close to the top of the table they are just not scoring enough goals.

Alan Gow's move to Bristol Rovers is still on the cards.

Dartford hope to get Harry Crawford from Barnet back yet again on loan until the end of the season.


28 Jan 2014 20:50:14
will drive him down to u he's been usless up here

Who Zola? He was so good for Burton last season.




20 Jan 2014 14:17:23
Brett Williams of Aldershot, the current Conference Premier highest goal scorer, is in talks with Yeovil Town.

Bristol Rovers want Colchester striker Freddie Sears, Rovers are willing to pay a substantial transfer fee.

Alan Gow of Exeter could be on the move to either Gillingham or Rochdale.


20 Jan 2014 16:11:08
Brett Williams are you serious couldn't score in L2 and L1 and going to the championship the guy is not capable. He was at Reading and he wasnt good enough for them and Yeovil must be mad if true. He is a Conference player and that is his limit.

20 Jan 2014 19:21:10
Gills linked with Alan Gow again, that must be the last 4 transfer windows that has happened! So I can't see that holding any truth

20 Jan 2014 20:44:06
Gow is on contract until the end of the season so its unlikely that gillingham would pay a fee

20 jan 2014 22:17:55
alan gow in talks with bristol rovers the club looking at a winger too

Yeovil see Williams as a perfect replacement for Madden, indeed he's stronger and better in the air than Madden. As for not being good enough for L1/2 - he's made a big difference at Aldershot and in the League, deserves a shot.


21 Jan 2014 19:20:27
Yeovil are going to have to gamble on forwards, proven goals scorers at the right level are way out of yeovils price range

Ha ha now Gow is going to Bristol Rovers, every window someone from Exeter City is going to Rovers and every window it doesn't happen. Check your sources because they are terrible




18 Jan 2014 23:45:07
Freddie Sears set to sign for Bristol rovers on loan

Would be a good signing also heard we are looking at leon mettan from worksop town leading scorer in the unibond premier.




10 Jan 2014 16:07:59
Bristol Rovers keen to bring in Dominic Poleon for the rest of the season.

Wolves keen on a Rovers defender Michael Smith.

Sourced from the Events team at the Mem.

Somerset Blue Nose

Rumour is he is set to join preston tolink up with simon Grayson o a 18 month contract

pne fan 2013

19 Jan 2014 14:22:47
