Chief executive's tribute to Stan Anderson

14 June 2018

Rovers chief executive Gavin Baldwin has offered condolences from the club to the family of former manager Stan Anderson, who passed away this week.

Anderson was in charge at Belle Vue from 1975 to 1978, when Rovers were in the Fourth Division with players like Brendan O’Callaghan and Peter Kitchen on the books.

Gavin said: “It has been great to read some of the memories of fans reminiscing about his time in charge, including many who fell in love with the club during that period. 

“On behalf of everyone connected with Rovers I’d like to offer my condolences to his family.”

Stan, who was 85 at the time of his death, had enjoyed a distinguished playing career with Sunderland, Newcastle and Middlesbrough - as well as a couple of appearances for England - before turning his hand to coaching.

As well as Rovers, he managed Middlesbrough, AEK Athens, Queens Park Rangers and Bolton Wanderers.
