On a rainy Sunday in Mid Glamorgan, a group of women were about to play under the name Bristol Rovers WFC for the first time in 19 years.
Bristol Rovers face Oxford United this weekend boosted by their first win of the League campaign. The Gas beat nine-man Tranmere 2-0 in midweek thanks to goals from Jonson Clarke-Harris and Tyler Smith. In what is normally a heated affair, the match with Oxford this weekend is also heightened with the news of the return of former Rovers striker Matty Taylor, who left the Gas to sign for arch-rivals Bristol City on Deadline Day in January 2017.
Bristol Rovers entertain Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday night still looking for a first league win of the season. Rovers now sit 21st in League One after three games with one draw and two defeats, the most recent being a 2-0 loss away at Coventry. Goals from Jordan Shipley and Gervane Kastaneer were enough to see off the Gas who did not register a single shot on target.
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!
