One of the most gifted footballers Rovers have, or indeed ever had, Coppinger is in his 14th season at the club and holds many records and accolades.

Coppinger started his career as a trainee for Darlington in 1998 before moving to Premier League Club Newcastle United. In 2002 he moved to Exeter City and made 82 appearances for the club.

In 2004 Dave Penney brought the midfielder to Rovers and he has been a constant feature ever since.

His greatest moments at the club include his sublime hat-trick in a 5-1 victory over Southend

in 2008 and more recently scoring “that goal” at Griffin Park as Rovers beat Brentford in the dying seconds of the match to win the League One trophy in 2013.
