Blackpool v Bristol Rovers

Played on the 5th of May 1990 in the old Third Division, ending in a 3-0 victory to the Rovers. Having just completed a 3-0 thrashing of local rivals Bristol City, The Gas came to Blackpool needing a win to guarantee the Third Division Title - which was duly delivered.


A bit of useless information. A certain individual supporting an unkempt curly mop on top of his head was causing havoc from midfield for Rovers - this the last fixture of the 1989 - 1990 season for both clubs.

Fast Forward 20 years to the last fixture of the 2009 - 2010 season and the same individual with slightly less hair is leading Blackpool out at Wembley to Premiership glory.


Step forward Mr. I. Holloway
