Two trips to Las Vegas are on the cards for the players and manager of Bristol Rovers after they secured promotion...but they'll be heading state-side for very different reasons.

Darrell Clarke confirmed he was looking forward to a stag-do in Sin City ahead of his marriage in the off-season while the players will be getting £100,000 from owner Wael Al-Qadi to enjoy on holiday there too.

Lee Brown scored the vital 92nd minute goal against Dagenham at the Memorial Ground to snatch promotion in the sweetest way for Rovers.

He admitted he was surprised the ball fell to him but was glad to see it end up in the back of the net.

Matty Taylor finished the season as the division's top scorer with 27 goals. He confirmed there was no truth in rumours he had agreed a move elsewhere at the end of the season.
