Blackburn Rovers fans set up in the market for more Venky’s feedback
Blackburn Rovers fans have set out their stall highlighting their campaign calling on the club’s owners Venky’s to “communicate” with them.
Members of the BRFC Action Group have a stall in Blackburn Market to encourage more people to sign up and raise funds.
The aim is to “give Rovers fans a voice” and seek answers from the owners over their future plans.
Secretary Mark Fish said: “As a group, the long term is not solely about Steve Kean or Venky’s. It is about the long-term protection of Rovers and to hold any future owners accountable for what happens.
“With Steve Kean and Venky’s it has gone bad. It’s now about sustaining communication channels between supporters and the club for this regime and any future regimes.
“The club was broken at the end of the season. Since then the owners haven’t come out and made an apology or made a statement of intent about what their future plans are.
“They have come along and said, ‘we are confused, give us a month’ and then they’ve appointed Shebby Singh as global director and that’s fine.
“But they need to come out and make their intentions clear. Club communication has not been acceptable or improved this summer.”
The stall is stelling keyrings, T-shirts, wristbands and has membership forms available. It is open from 9am to 5pm all week.
Andy Woods, supporters liaison, said: “We want as many people as possible to come down to the stall and support what we’re trying to do and make the town aware that the group is working for the benefit of Blackburn Rovers.”
Around 500 fans are expected to attend a special meeting with Mr Singh at Blakeys, King George’s Hall, on Saturday at 10am.
Other panelists include Blackburn Council leader Kate Hollern and Sir Bill Taylor.
