Rover of the Day: Tommy Rowe

Manchester-born midfielder Tommy earned promotions at Stockport County and Peterborough United before moving on to Wolves, where he struggled to break into the first team. In March 2016 his former Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson brought him to Rovers and his three goals in 10 appearances just failed to save Rovers from relegation to League Two.

Despite this, Tommy made his move permanent and played a starring role in the 2016-17 promotion campaign, scoring 13 League goals, his best ever return. He gave consistent performances for Rovers back in League One, despite often being asked to play out of position, notably at left-back.

For 2018-19 he was appointed captain but missed much of the campaign due to a troublesome hamstring injury. His last act was to miss a penalty in Rovers’ dramatic shoot-out defeat in the League One play-off semi-final at Charlton, having scored earlier in the game. He is now with Championship side Bristol City. His overall record for Rovers was 144 appearances and 31 goals.
