Profile

Bristol Rovers are managed by Ben Garner who replaced Graham Coughlan in December 2019.

Founded in 1883, Bristol Rovers made it into the Football League in 1920 and haven't dropped out of it since, but they have failed to add any major silverware to their trophy cabinet in that time.

During their history, Rovers haven't always been up-and-down the lower echelons of the Football League, but they find themselves in League One with the chance of winning a third consecutive promotion.

Rovers have reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on a few occasions, whilst in the 2000s they managed to play at both Wembley and the Millennium Stadium after they won through to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final and the League Two play-off final, with the latter being a victorious one.
