Viva Video XXXIII

As promised its Friday afternoon, and so its time for our second instalment (well since the move, its our thirty-third in total) of Viva Video. An excuse to kill some time while your boss and co-workers are distracted by the Ashes. Just a short video this week, but worth a watch all the same.

Rovers are in action on two fronts this weekend with the current squad facing Barrow in a friendly tomorrow afternoon and then later in the evening the veteran wing get an outing in the Yorkshire Masters. So in honour of the latter of those fixtures here’s some rare footage of one of the Rovers’ Masters Squad.

Leo Fortune-West, striker, captain and part-time sweat-band model was a cult hero wherever he went and rightly so. This was particularly true of his time at Cardiff City and thankfully we are able to bring you the exact moment which in the eyes of many Bluebirds was the peak of his Ninian Park career. For a man who made a career out of unorthadox bundled close range finishes, this was a rare moment of beauty. A neat turn and side-step followed by a pin-point top corner finish. They don’t make them like this any more… look out Sheffield Arena… Leo is in town.
