For the last few years, 4,000 Holes has been establishing a ‘101 Great Goals’ collection, with the list of inductees so far listed below. These have been put forward as fanzine articles by a variety of Rovers supporters.
There’s a lot of work still to do to make it to 101 so it’d be fantastic if anyone else is keen to write in and make a contribution to help the project along.
The rules are very relaxed. It can be a Goal of the Season contender, a promotion-winning strike, a scrappy effort which broke a goalscoring duck, or one which is memorable for any other obscure reason. Some maverick has even added a couple of goals scored against Rovers into the list!
Do you remember a goal which desperately needs adding to the collection? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your write-up and it'll be put into a future issue of the fanzine.
Other contributions to the forthcoming Issue 106 are also very much welcomed over the next couple of weeks and season subscriptions are still available to buy via this link.
