‘No Surprise’ – These Bristol Rovers fans react to significant club news

Bristol Rovers are set to lose midfielder Liam Sercombe after the two parties failed to agree on a new deal, as reported by Bristol Live.

The Gas have seemingly retained their status in League One, despite struggling for the latter part of the season, and a significant rebuild looks likely following the December appointment of Ben Garner. Like many teams, they face an uncertain future and that is sure to have played a part in the news that Sercombe is likely to leave the club.

The out of contract 30-year-old joined the club from Oxford United in 2017, scoring 12 goals in all competitions in his first season. His impact hasn’t been as strong since and he’ll leave the Gas having scored a total 19 goals in 126 appearances.

Sercombe spent the first part of his career with Exeter City, where he won promotion from the Conference Premier, as well as promotion from League Two under Paul Tisdale’s stewardship. He spent five more years with the club after that success, seeing them relegated from League One, before joining up with renowned coach Michael Appleton at Oxford.

He finished as a runner up in League Two in his first season with the U’s, as well as playing in successive Wembley finals in the EFL Trophy, scoring in the second appearance against Coventry. He joined Rovers following that season but is now set to move to pastures new. Gas fans have been reacting to the news, seemingly not surprised that the player is moving on after a rather indifferent season.
