Clarrie Jordan became the 24th player inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Jordan signed to Rovers just after the outbreak of World War Two. Because of his occupation – Jordan was a coal miner – he was not called up to active service and when football resumed in 1946, he established himself as Rovers main striker.
He scored a club record 42 goals that season, a record that is likely to last forever. His goal scoring prowess in that season helped Rovers secure the Division Three North Title.
He was sold to Sheffield Wednesday the next season having reached 50 goals in just 67 senior appearances for Rovers.
