Carabao Energy Drink has teamed up with GasCast to give ten lucky Rovers fans the chance to win a pair of tickets to Bristol Rovers v Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday 27th August.
Bristol Rovers head to Coventry City this weekend hoping to get their first three points of the season. It may seem funny to think but this will treated as an away trip for both teams, with Coventry still accustoming to their new surroundings at St Andrews (Birmingham City’s ground). The Sky Blues are spending the 2019⁄20 season at St Andrews due to them being unable to secure a deal to remain at the Ricoh Arena.
Nothing can beat a matchday at the Mem. Leaving the house in the freezing cold (or pouring rain, but never it seems, bright sunshine!) and knowing straight away that you haven’t put anywhere near enough layers on to last you through the match. Walking towards the pub to get your weekly football pint (or three). The buzz inside the place gets your blood racing straight away. Whispers about the latest player joining, what is the line up going to look like? Or even where we going to get our kicks now the Chicken Balti pie has gone? (well maybe the last one not quite so much!).
Bristol Rovers host Wycombe Wanderers in their first home game of the new season. The Gas go into the game having suffered an opening day defeat at the hands of Blackpool whilst Saturday’s opponents Wycombe ran out 2-0 winners over financially stricken Bolton Wanderers.

Bristol Rovers start their “2019⁄20” League One season away at Blackpool with fans optimistic after avoiding relegation last term. The Gas go into the game having won the final pre-season game 1-0 away at recently relegated and hotly tipped to bounce back up to League One Plymouth Argyle last weekend.
As another season of football begins, we want to make this years GasCast better than ever. We have lots of exciting ideas, but we need your help to make this happen!
When Bristol Rovers signed two very tall goalkeepers over the summer my mind immediately went back to the summer of 1965, when Rovers fans felt the excitement of signing Ronnie Briggs a 6’ 3” Northern Irish International, from Swansea Town.
Earlier this summer we were sad to see James Clarke leaving the club, to reunite with Darrell Clarke at Walsall. We were lucky enough to have a quick chat with him following the move. Thank you to James for sparing the time to answer these questions and best of luck next season.
In August 1999, I watched the total solar eclipse, with an excited crowd of people, from higher ground overlooking St Austell Bay in Cornwall. The chill in the air, the feeling of anticipation and the quiet gasps from my fellow onlookers when it finally happened will always stay with me. I mention this by way of analogy- I will always remember where I was when that once in a lifetime event happened before my very eyes. Similarly, I will always remember exactly where I was when I saw Stefan Payne leave the ground in an attempt to win the ball in the air. I was standing in the Thatcher’s End, behind the goal, slightly to the left as you look at the pitch, and there was that same quiet gasp of awe from all those present as this unique spectacle transpired before us. I can’t imagine that a single person present at that 1-nil home defeat against Wycombe will ever forget it.
