  • Bristol Rovers Archive Volume 2: 1991-2001

    Taking up where the previous volume left off, this latest book from the Bristol Rovers Archive tracks the highs and lows of the club from 1991 to 2001: a remarkable slice of football history.

    Bristol Rovers programme editor Keith Brookman has collaborated with former club photographer Alan Marshall to look back at a decade in the life of Bristol's oldest professional football club. So much happened during those 10 years and the photos contained within these pages offer only a tantalising glimpse of some of the players and events that are now consigned to the club's illustrious past.

  • Fat Man to Green Man: From Unfit to Ultramarathon

    An honest and light-hearted chronicle, Fat Man to Green Man is the tale of one forty-something man's journey from fat to fit, and everything that came between the two. Far from being an elite athlete with superhuman running abilities like the ones he read about in books, Ira Rainey was an overweight and unfit slacker who felt a bit sorry for himself because he had sore feet. That was until a friend was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given months to live. It was to be an event that would push Ira to tackle his apathy towards life and take on the challenge of becoming an ultramarathon runner, pushing himself to go further than he had ever gone before.
