Rovers fans plan community march against Venky's regime
Blackburn Rovers fans will march against the club's regime on Saturday as they call for their "Rovers back".
Sections of disgruntled supporters will hold a community march before Saturday's crucial visit of Norwich City, demanding change in the running of the club.
The march will carry the message 'Blackburn wants its Rovers back' and will call for the removal of manager Steve Kean, the board of directors and for owners Venky's to sell the club.
A spokesperson for the Blackburn Rovers Action Group, said: “The BRFC Action Group is absolutely thrilled with the response of the public. We have been inundated with messages of support from across the globe and feedback from supporters has been fantastic.
"Blackburn Rovers football club is part of its supporter’s extended family and is the one common thing which pulls the town together.
"To the people of Blackburn, this is no longer just about losing football matches, this is about the very future of the football club and the very fabric of Blackburn.
"Our football club is a 137 year-old institution which has seen it’s traditions and values destroyed in less than 18 months.
"It takes only a few hands to bulldoze our club but it will take many hands to rebuild it and the whole community needs to come together to breathe life back into Blackburn Rovers.
"Venkys cannot make us feel inferior if we do not give them our consent. ‘Words divide us, actions unite us’ and if we are unified there is nothing that we cannot achieve."
The march will leave Blackburn Town Hall at 1.30pm and will head to Ewood Park for kick off.
