Connie Heseltine celebrated her 90th birthday in style last week with a little help from Alfie May.
Life-long Rovers fan Connie opted to sponsor the matchball against Gillingham for a birthday to remember as she and her family dined in luxury in the Jibba Jabba restaurant.
They then soaked up the action in the best seat in the house and Connie was giving the honour of choosing Man of the Match. She chose striker May who joined her after the match to present her with the match ball.
Head of commercial, Jon Warburton said: "It was our pleasure to welcome Connie and her family and friends to the game on what was a very special day for her.
“She regaled us with many tales of her early years supporting Rovers, and it means so much for us to be able to add to the great memories Connie has of her beloved club.
“We are extremely excited to create many more experiences like this over the season ahead.”
Rovers are back in league action on Saturday August 17 and you too can enjoy hospitality or match sponsorship in the Jibba Jabba restaurant with our exclusive match day packages.
Enjoy a sumptuous three-course meal as you watch the teams warm-up before taking in the action in VIP seating as Rovers host Fleetwood Town.
Upon arrival you will be welcomed with complimentary reception drinks and, as we build up to the match, you can be the first to know team news with team sheets and programmes distributed directly to your tables.
Onsite parking is available as part of the package and the Legends Club boasts large plasma TVs showing all the day’s sporting action.
Before proceedings come to a close, you will be invited to attend the man of the match presentation, where you can meet the players and grab a selfie too!
