Dave’s birthday surprise!

24 November 2014

Life-long Rovers fan Dave Sumner was stuck for words after being given a birthday treat to remember.

Dave was taken on a surprise trip to the Rovers training ground by his son-in-law Damian Salter to celebrate his 70th birthday!

The birthday boy was given a tour of the facilities at Brockhall, before heading outside to watch training. He then had lunch in the players’ canteen, before being invited into Gary Bowyer’s office, where the manager conducted his weekly pre-match press conference.

Dave said: “I’m a very happy man. I’d like to thank everybody who works for Blackburn Rovers because you’ve made my year!

“It’s been absolutely brilliant. I’ve been a Rovers fan for 60 years and the club means absolutely everything to me. I can’t thank you enough.”
