Harry Pell is a midfielder who joined Rovers in the summer of 2010, after having been released by Charlton Athletic.

He was named on the substitutes' bench for most games early in the 2010–11 season, but it took until 13 November 2010 for him to finally make his debut, coming on for Stuart Campbell 74 minutes into a 3–0 defeat to Leyton Orient. Late in January 2011, having still made just that one appearance for Rovers, he was shipped out on loan to Hereford United. He produced a string of impressive performances for The Bulls, and on his return to Bristol he was rewarded by a run of games in the first team and ended the season by winning the club's Young Player of the Year award.

He was offered a new contract at the end of the 2010–11 season after his initial one-year deal had expired, but he opted instead to re-join Hereford, signing for them for two years.


Harry joined the Charlton youth system at the age of 7, and worked his way up through their junior teams. In 2010 he joined Hastings United on a work experience deal, and also had trials with Gillingham, Bristol Rovers and Wycombe Wanderers in that order. He impressed the Rovers management enough to earn a one-year deal, with the club having the option to extend it for a second season.

He joined Hereford United on month's loan on transfer deadline day, 31 January 2011, having made just a single substitute appearance for Rovers up until that point. Following his permanent move to The Bulls in 2011 he was loaned out to Cambridge United in an emergency month-long deal in March 2012, where he played seven times. He was a regular member of the starting lineup throughout his time with The Bulls, prompting AFC Wimbledon to pay an undisclosed fee to sign him during the January 2013 transfer window.
