The evening proved to be a resounding success, with attendees thoroughly entertained by Scott's captivating anecdotes. The funds raised from the event have a clear purpose: to enhance the facilities available to the youngest players within the club. The Junior Committee is committed to maximising the existing space and fostering a sense of pride among the youngsters, ensuring they consider the New Friarage their home and Rovers their club.
