Chris Llewellyn is a midfielder and forward who joined Rovers on loan from Norwich City in February 2003 until the end of the 2002-03 season. He scored three times in fourteen League games before returning to Norwich in May 2003.

He made his debut for Rovers on 22 February 2003, when he scored a late equaliser in a 1–1 draw with Macclesfield Town, and also scored twice in a 3–2 defeat to Wrexham on 12 April. His goals brought Rovers level after being 2–0 down to The Robins, but Wrexham snatched the win in the 88th minute.

He has been capped six times by the Welsh national team, and fourteen times by the under-21s.

CareerEdit

Chris started out as a trainee with Norwich City, and progressed through to their professional ranks in 1996. He made 142 League appearances for Norwich, scoring seventeen times, before going on loan to Rovers. He was released by The Canaries almost immediately after returning from loan, and he joined Wrexham in the summer of 2003.

He spent two years at Wrexham, before moving to Hartlepool United for the 2005–06 season, where he played 29 League games without scoring. He re-joined Wrexham in 2006, and after a further two years which brought his appearance total for the Welsh club up to 170 League games, he signed for Grimsby Town in 2008. He played in 28 League games for The Mariners, but returned to Wales in the summer of 2009 to join Welsh Premier League side Neath Athletic. After a year with Neath his contract was terminated by mutual consent, enabling him to sign for fellow Welsh Premier side Llanelli.

His 2011–12 season was hampered by a lengthy injury layoff, leading him to be loaned out to Aberystwyth Town in January to get some matches under his belt. He made just one start in the league and nine substitute appearances for Llanelli, scoring once, and two starts for Aberystwyth that season.

He ended his playing career with Swansea-based club West End, where he spent the 2012–13 season, picking up the Welsh Football League Division One title and retiring from the game as a champion. He also moved into a full-time coaching role alongside his playing duties, working in the youth set-up at Swansea City.
