Bristol Rovers have enjoyed a superb couple of years under their boss, Darrell Clarke.
Their relegation to the Conference in the 2013/14 season was undoubtedly one of the lowest points of the club’s history – spanning back as far as 1883.
However, the club had since managed to gain back-to-back promotions and now find themselves in the competitive league of League One.
The club’s rise from their darkest days in the Conference certainly did not come from any sort of fluke. It took hard graft and determination to get the club to where they are now and the man, mainly, responsible for that is their manager.
He brought together a group of players who have transformed the feeling around the club and, barring a few additions, the squad is near on the same team that has helped them to two promotions.
There is certainly a great blend of talent, experience and youth in the Rovers side and that has most definitely made their successes much more likely.
A group of players that have a team chemistry like Rovers do has made the job much more easier for Darrell Clarke but, as in any team, some players grab the headlines more than others.
Even if you don’t support Rovers, you’re like to have heard of Matty Taylor who scored a record 28 goals for the club.
Furthermore, Tom Lockyer also received great appreciation for his work at the heart of the Rovers as he is proving to be a very hot prospect, as well as Taylor.
However, there are some players in the Rovers side that don’t always receive the appreciation they deserve.
