Rover of the Day: Trevor Ogden

Trevor Ogden born June 12, 1945

Born in Culcheth, near Warrington, Trevor had one season with then-second division Manchester City before joining Rovers at the start of the 1965-66 season. He made an immediate impact on debut, scoring twice in a 2-2 draw with Barnsley in the League Cup.

The centre-forward struggled to displace the prolific Laurie Sheffield, but he did notch a hat-trick when playing alongside Sheffield in a 6-3 home win over Darlington in April 1966. Rovers were promoted from Division Four as Champions.

With Alick Jeffrey injured and Sheffield sold to Norwich City, Trevor found more opportunities in 1966-67. He managed to score in five successive games at one point, but Rovers failed to win any of them, and despite a hat-trick against Mansfield Town he finished on the losing side.

Released at the end of the season, he joined non-League Witton Albion. Trevor’s record for Rovers was 19 goals in 45 appearances.
