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 help the project along so it’d be fantastic if anyone else is keen to write in and make a contribution. Even Ryan Hedges is apparently penning something about his Watford goal this season!
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 email@example.com with your write-up and it'll be put into a future issue of the fanzine.
Other contributions to the forthcoming Issue 110 are also very much welcomed over the next week and subscriptions are available to buy via this link: https://roversfanzine.bigcartel.com/product/4-000-holes-subscriptions-2023-24
