It was an afternoon to remember on Thursday as more than 200 supporters got the chance to meet two of our three summer signing

Midfield duo Joe Rothwell and Jacob Davenport were on hand to pose for photographs and sign autographs in the club shop between 3pm and 4pm, with fans flocking to meet them.

Fans of all ages reported in, with autograph books and even trainers being taken off for the pair to sign.

Both Joe and Jacob were the latest to take their seat in Roverstore to meet the fans, following on from Lewis Travis, Bradley Dack, Charlie Mulgrew and Richie Smallwood in recent months.

Rothwell said: "It was great to meet the supporters for the first time as a Rovers players. As a new boy, it was brilliant to see how enthusiatic everyone was to meet us, and also how optimistic the fans are for the season ahead.

"These events are great for everyone and are part and parcel of the game, bringing the club together. It was something I used to do when I was a kid, waiting to get autographs from my heroes, so the boot is on the other foot now!"
