October goal of the month winner confirmed - and it's a special one

4 November 2022

There was only ever going to be one winner - and rightly so.

The Rovers goal of the month competition for October was a foregone conclusion before voting even opened and it hardly took a super computer to work out the outcome once polling had closed.

Rio Spurr’s brilliantly heartwarming strike in front of the South Stand during half time of the win over Gillingham was the overwhelming favourite among supporters.

Rio and his dad - former Rovers defender Tommy - were guests of honour at the game. And the youngster took part in a half time kickabout with the Rovers substitutes before embarking on his run and finish.

And the pair will be back at the Eco-Power Stadium on November 13 for a charity match to raise money for Rio, who is undergoing treatment for Stage 4 kidney cancer.
