Bradley the Badger

As part of it’s campaign to help the Football Club boost their attendance figures and to strengthen the links with the local Gloucestershire community, the FGR Supporters Trust have been instrumental in bringing fun and entertainment to the pre match and half time proceedings at the New Lawn.

The idea of introducing a Club Mascot has been around for some while however it was finally brought to life during the close season. Prompted by members of the Trust, supporters have decided that our mascot should take the form of a Badger whose distinctive markings mirror the famous black and white stripes of the Rovers.

Funding for the purchase and making up of a suitable costume was organised by the Trust and Andrew Carter, an active volunteer kindly agreed to don the suit during all home matches.

The Badger was first set loose at our first pre season friendly match with Bristol City on 12 July 2008 and we anticipate him becoming a local legend amongst our younger fans. We recently ran a competition to capitalise upon the enthusiasm of our junior supporters by inviting them to participate in a naming competition for him.

We can now announce that Forest Green Rovers' new mascot has been named Bradley the Badger.

His name was chosen by Norman Kay, Mayor of Nailsworth from more than 50 entries into the naming competition run during July.

Ben Howell aged 7 from Hardwicke was the lucky recipient of a Junior Season Ticket for the 2008-09 campaign (see more pics in Photo Gallery).

Bradley the Badger is very pleased with his name and is now looking forward to entertaining the kids at Forest Green Rovers' home games this season.

To see Bradley in action, just come to any home game at the New Lawn
