Strachan thanks fans

27 June 2018

Gavin Strachan has thanked Rovers’ fans for their support during his time at the club after leaving his role as assistant manager.

The 39-year-old departs after two years in the job, and he says he is proud to have played a part in the club’s progression.

“The level of support we’ve had over the years has been overriding, that relationship between the staff, the players and the fans is back again and that gives me a real sense of pride,” he said.

“From the time we went down into League Two, even at that point, the fans were so supportive over the years, and I have nothing but thanks to them really.

“Looking back I am really proud to have played a part, I have worked with some fantastic individuals ranging from the players, people at the stadium and the wonderful staff at Cantley Park.”

Rovers were promoted back to Sky Bet League One at the first time of asking at the end of the 2016/17 season, and Strachan says the game against Morecambe at the Globe Arena was one of his favourites games during his time at the club.

“There aren’t too many teams that bounce back after relegation at the first time of asking, history has proved that, so the level of satisfaction to get the club back up in a healthier state was pleasing,” he added.

“The game that really sticks in my mind was Morecambe away in League Two, James Coppinger’s 500th game for the club where we won 5-1 - It was a lovely day and the support was great. We played some great football and Copps got his goal.

“The players have been brilliant, the buy in from the senior professionals  was vital and they made my job easier with their attitude.”
