Bristol Rovers Striker Matty Taylor aged 26.

In June 2014, Taylor signed for recently relegated Conference side Bristol Rovers, reportedly rejecting offers from former sides Oxford United and Chester as well as Mansfield Town and Kidderminster Harriers.

His Bristol Rovers career got off to a difficult start as he scored just three times in his first 18 games. He finished the season with 20 goals, including one in each of the play-off semi-final games against Forest Green Rovers. He played the full 120 minutes of the play-off Final and scored Rovers’ second penalty of the shoot-out as Rovers secured an immediate return to the Football League.

Taylor scored his first Football League goal in a 3–1 win against Barnet FC. A successful start to his season resulted in Taylor scoring eight goals in all competitions before mid November, including two goals vs Carlisle United. After an unstoppable run, Taylor achieved 14 goals in all competitions before Christmas, including hat-tricks in the 3–0 victory against Wycombe Wanderers and 4–1 win against Hartlepool United. On the final day of the season, Bristol Rovers achieved promotion to League One by scoring a dramatic winner in the 92nd minute. Lee Brown scored the decisive goal after Taylor himself hit the post.
Taylor finished the season with 27 goals and five assists, outscoring every player in the Football League.

Taylor proceeded to score on his League One debut against Scunthorpe United in a 3–1 loss.

On 18 October 2016, Taylor scored a second-half hat-trick to earn a point for the Rovers against Milton Keynes Dons in a 3–3 draw.
