Pete O’Connell

We are very saddened to report that one of our former directors Pete O’Connell passed away last Sunday, 4th June.

Pete was very well-known to many people within the football community not just in Bromsgrove but across a wide area.

Pete acted for a number of years as the physio for Bromsgrove Rovers particularly during their heyday in the Bobby Hope era. He then became a director of Rovers in the early 2000s and a founding member of Bromsgrove Sporting Supporters Society serving as the chairman and more recently as the president.

Pete was appointed as a Society representative on the board of Bromsgrove Sporting and carried out that role diligently from 2014 to 2019.

Pete was a familiar face around the Victoria Ground and will be missed by everyone who knew him.

The Club are in contact with Pete’s family and further details including funeral arrangements will be posted here as and when available.

For anybody wanting to send personal condolences then please get in touch with the Club by emailing the company secretary, Phil Baker at who will supply the contact information.
