Lambert and Martyn set for Cossham Street

August 31 2021

BRISTOL Rovers legends including Rickie Lambert and Nigel Martyn will be taking to the field at Mangotsfield United's Cossham Street ground later this month.
The Martin Belsten Memorial Match on September 26 will feature a team of Rovers fans taking on a Rovers Legends side that is also set to include Aaron Lescott, Steve Phillips, Craig Disley and Lewis Hogg.
The annual family-friendly charity match is organised by Rovers fan Ash Belsten, from Kingswood, in memory of his grandfather Martin, who took him to his first ever Rovers match and died in 2016.
This year Bristol Rovers Community Trust is the chosen charity for the match, which will kick off at 3pm, with gates opening for pre-match events from 12.30pm.
The match aims to raise £20,000 and was already more than half way to hitting the target as the Voice went to print, with around 500 tickets sold. Tickets for the match are for sale online at bristolroverscommunity.org.uk/belstenmemorialmatch2021.
