Gasheads In Swindon? NO WAY

Bristol Rovers have narrowed it down to three choices on where to play when the Memorial Stadium is redeveloped, Bath, Cheltenham and Swindon Town.

Bristol Rovers have got permission to start building a 18,000 all seater stadium on the current site of the Memorial Stadium and will have to re-locate whilst construction work goes on.

Bath City's Twerton Park looks to be the fans favourite with the Gasheads playing there between 1986-1996 before returning to Bristol.

Steve Lansdown had previously stated that he could see no better alternative site for the Rovers to play than at Swindon Town which already a approved Football League ground.

Although Swindon Town could do with the extra money, no one can forget the scenes during Swindon's clash with Bristol Rovers earlier in the season.

Bristol Rovers and Swindon Town fans hurled seats, coins and spat at each other as well as causing trouble in the Town Centre as well as the train station during the day, Do we really want this week in and week out? Would the council and police approve of this groundsharing?

Many fans have already said they would like to see our peaceful town be free of Bristol Rovers and see them play at Twerton Park whilst the Memorial Stadium is redeveloped.
