Give Dunny the send-off he deserves

1 May 2015

Gary Bowyer is sure the Blackburn Rovers supporters will give David Dunn a great send-off in his final game for the club on Saturday.

The Rovers boss hopes the fans come out to cheer one of their own as the midfielder brings his 27-year association with his hometown team to an end.

Dunn is likely to play some part in the Ewood Park match against Ipswich Town in the lunchtime kick-off and Bowyer wants the 35-year-old's time at the club to be marked with a win.

"I think it is fitting and right and hopefully the Blackburn public will come out in force to show their appreciation to a wonderful footballer and a wonderful servant to this football club," said the manager.

"He's been a fantastic role model to our Academy boys and our first team players. I fought very hard for him in the summer to make sure that he was here to be part of it this season.

"Even now in training he is passing on his experience to the younger ones in John O'Sullivan and Darragh Lenihan. Those players better appreciate his efforts with them because unfortunately he won't be here next season.

"I'm not sure there'll be many more like him, he is Blackburn through and through and he cares passionately for the club. That was one of the reasons why it was really important to have him around - he is Mr. Blackburn Rovers.

"It is important that we give him a really good send-off and try and win the game for him."
