What's your favourite Blackburn Rovers goal of the season?
5:08pm Tuesday 10th April 2012 in News
Netbusters, silky team efforts and individual brilliance – Blackburn Rovers’ 2011-12 ‘Goal of the Season’ award is sure to prove as difficult to choose as ever.
The club launched the competition (The Peter White Memorial Trophy) in conjunction with the Lancashire Telegraph, in memory of popular sports journalist and keen Roverite Peter White. The scorer of the best goal of the season receives the coveted trophy.
Junior Hoilett scooped the top prize last season with his screamer against West Brom at Ewood ... and the rising star has another couple of entries in this year’s competition.
Or will it be Ruben Rochina’s rocket against Fulham, Yakubu’s beauty in the win over Swansea or Morten Gamst Pedersen’s sublime free-kick at Arsenal – with a fine selection to pick from, the choice is all yours!
Anyone who gets the 1-2-3 in the order selected by the management will go in the hat to win a shirt signed by the eventual winner.
