Blackburn Rovers are dedicating the Darwen End Stand to club legend Bryan Douglas.
The Bryan Douglas Darwen End was unveiled at a special dinner date at Ewood Park tonight.
Players, past and present, staff and corporate supporters were treated to ‘An Evening to Remember’, which took the invited guests on a trip down memory lane, looking back on some of the major highlights from the club’s illustrious history.
A local lad, ‘Dougie’ joined Rovers in 1952 and went on to make 503 appearances, scoring 115 goals, over the next 17 years. He also earned 36 caps for England.
During a distinguished career at Ewood Park, Bryan formed a close friendship, on and off the field, with former captain Ronnie Clayton, who had the Blackburn End renamed in his honour last September.
Rovers’ operations director Paul Agnew said: “This is a fitting tribute to a true Blackburn Rovers legend and loyal servant of the club, which has been done with the blessing of our owners. It is an honour richly deserved.”
