"I would just like to thank you for the whole experience playing on Ewood Park, it was absolutely amazing. The whole set up was very professional and extremely well organised and I would 100% love to play again and will definitely try to get a position as soon as they come out for Blackburn Rovers next year...I'm a lifelong Blackburn supporter and it meant everything to me to play at Ewood Park.
