Here, we continue our look at what happened next for every player that made an appearance in that memorable season. For part one CLICK HERE.

12/13 appearances: 14. Persistence paid off for the Everton loanee. After his first loan spell brought the League One title, he earned another temporary move to Yeovil in the Championship before being a part of the Leyton Orient side that reached the League One play-off final in 2014. Other loans at Blackpool, Orient and Scunthorpe followed before he left Everton for Oxford United. After more than 100 appearances for Oxford, he joined Sheffield United, winning promotion to the top flight and has become a key member of the side thriving in the Premier League.
12/13 appearances: 35. The centre half remained with Rovers for two more years after the League One title win but managed only 25 more appearances with a back injury robbing him of the chance to play regularly in the Championship. Following his release from Rovers in 2015 he spent six months with Stevenage before a switch to Lincoln, where he played out his career until retirement last summer. He moved in coaching with the Imps and was caretaker manager for a three game spell earlier this season but left Sincil Bank in January.
