The fans on the bus im travelling to Warrington on are all planning on wearing flatcaps for the day. How good would it look if there were 4/500 Rovers fans in flat caps for the game

Nice, guys.
Novel idea, hope somehow you raise some cash for the club, or even a local cause with folks joining in.
However, we'll have to ask you to leave the whippets at home, just in case they aren't "stadium trained" you understand.
Seriously, how many are travelling, will it be 500, or even more?

Hope you help fill what bits of the ground are open, 1 stand is closed, last I heard.
Cup tie, we'll be clear favourites, could rest players, and if you guys play to the max, who knows?
Last season's score at PO road (or whatever it's called this year) means nothing.
Hope it's a good game and an enjoyable day for all.
Can't afford it myself, as usual, I'll be listening in, though.

There is a photograph of me in a Challenge Cup Final program wearing a large flat cap leant on a wall reading the previous years program.

Flat cap, we did it 20 odd years ago, coach load of 56.

Try and be original. rolleyes.gif

No he would have to share his pie with it, look where he comes from.
To be a ROVER is a privilege not to be taken lightly, with fans like ours, we will always be honoured.
