Before his coaching career : Ian HOLLOWAY

Ian Scott Holloway is an English former player who played as a midfielder. Ian HOLLOWAY began his career at hometown club Bristol Rovers in 1981 at eighteen. Before that he played for Bristol as an apprentice. He usually played on the right side of midfield, and made his name as one of the more promising players in the Third Division (now League One). After four seasons at Rovers, he was transferred to Wimbledon in July 1985. His stay at Wimbledon was a short one after less than one year at the club, he was sold to Brentford, where he also spent just a little over a year. In January 1987 he joined Torquay United on loan, playing five times. In August 1987, after two years in London, Holloway returned at home to Bristol Rovers. Back at Rovers, who were now playing "home" games at Twerton Park in Bath, and under the wing of new Rovers manager Gerry Francis, Holloway flourished. In four seasons, he missed only five games. When Francis was appointed manager of First Division side QPR in 1991, one of his first signings was Holloway, in August 1991. Holloway spent five seasons at QPR, playing more than 150 games for the club, before returning to Bristol Rovers for the third time in August 1996, this time as player-manager
