Bristol Rovers ban ex-director Kevin Spencer from club

Bristol Rovers have banned former director Kevin Spencer from attending matches because of "persistent criticism" of the club.

Spencer resigned in 2006 following a boardroom split, which also saw the exit of ex-managing director Mike Turl.

It is thought he was asked to leave the Memorial Stadium during Saturday's 3-1 victory against Northampton.

A club statement said Spencer had been "consistent in his criticism" since his departure six years ago.

The statement continued: "The board feels that the only way to move on is to exclude him from future events."
