Rovers chief Shebby Singh prepares for showdown with 500 fans
Blackburn Rovers global adviser Shebby Singh is to meet discontented fans to outline how the own-ers and manager plan to turn the club round to return to the Premier League.
Since his appointment earlier this summer the Blackburn Rovers Football Club Action Group has been keen for public question and answer session with the man charged with improving communication between supporters and the club bosses.
Mr Singh has agreed to meet with 500 fans at Blakey's in King George's Hall chaired by Blackburn with Darwen council leader Kate Hollern.
Top of the agenda will be discontent at relegation and over owners Venky's loyalty to manager Steve Kean.
The fans want to know how Kean and the club intend to ensure immediate promotion back to the premier league.
The two-hour meeting from 10am to noon will be the first chance for supporters to air their views directly to Mr Singh and a key move in the BRFC Action Groups plans to build on their position as the only fans group affiliated to the Football Supporters Federation.
BRFC Action Group secretary Mark Fish said: “We as a group are delighted that a chain of communication has finally been opened with somebody whom has direct, daily contact with the owners of Blackburn Rovers.
“While this is only one step, it is a giant step in the right direction in terms of getting Blackburn Rovers back on the right track.
“Shebby is keen to listen and we are delighted that Shebby is willing to meet with a wide range of the club's supporters in an attempt to bring the club, its supporters and the town's community back together.”
