Branching out!

27 September 2014

Midfield stars Craig Conway and David Dunn have both been honoured by the London Branch of the Blackburn Rovers Supporters Club.

Conway, who scored four goals and contributed countless assists in 18 appearances for Rovers last season after joining in January, picked up the Player of the Year award.

While Dunny, who is now in his 15th season with his boyhood club, was presented with a special Long Service award. 

Established in the mid-70s, the London Branch is now in its 38th season and is officially recognised by the club.

It was the brainchild of Allan Fell, who wrote to Rovers some 40 years ago to see how a local supporters club could be formed.

Various fans, including Allan, Julian Veglio and John Knight (who are all still members today), would meet up on trips to home and away matches, and kept in regular contact.

At its peak – when Alan Shearer and Co. were firing Rovers to Premiership glory – the Branch had over 250 members. Now, in 2014, it has a steady membership of over 100.

The Branch has its own football team and participates in the APFSCIL Football League in Division 2.

New members are always welcome, with various functions and evening events arranged throughout the year, including Gold Day and Christmas Drinks.
