Rovers player visits Barley Close
YOUNGSTERS at Barley Close Primary School enjoyed a kick-about with a Bristol Rovers player who came to visit them.
Midfielder Sam Matthews came to the school to donate free tickets for the club’s Checkatrade Trophy semi-final against Sunderland.
After handing out 30 sets of tickets, Sam fielded questions from pupils on a variety of football-related topics before heading out for a kick about.
Although Rovers didn't make it through to the final in the end, the visit from Sam went down well at Barley Close.
Sam said: "The children seemed excited and looked like they enjoyed it.
"There were a few funny questions from the pupils, asking about the rivalry with our City neighbours!
“Hopefully they enjoyed the opportunity to come down and watch the game against Sunderland."
