The Sharples family

Brilliant brother Ben Sharples was surprisingly lost for words after being handed a Golden Ticket!

Ben, who is renowned for giving a running commentary whilst watching games at Ewood Park, was nominated for the special prize by his mum Rebecca.

Rebecca and husband Richard, who is a life-long Rovers fan, have recently adopted a brother for Ben and the couple have been delighted with the way he has reacted.

“Ben has been amazing and has welcomed him into our family with real acceptance,” said Rebecca. 

“He loves him to bits and helps with him all the time. Having said this, we have endeavoured to ensure Ben still gets time to himself and carries on enjoying things that he is passionate about. He loves Rovers and he’ll be beside himself to win this prize!”

The club are giving away 20 Golden Tickets ahead of the 2014-15 Championship campaign to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rovers’ Premiership title triumph. 

Details of how to get your hands on the final few free season tickets for next season will be announced soon!
