Ben Marshall was the night’s big winner at the Blackburn Rovers Disabled Supporters Player of the Year Awards.

The 25-year-old scooped the top honour after an excellent individual campaign, which has seen the Rovers star excel at right-back, as well as further forward, contributing six goals to the cause.

Marshall said: “It’s a good achievement and I’m really happy, it has been a good season for me personally. Obviously there’s been ups and downs, but it’s been good for me playing in a different position and I’ve enjoyed it.”

It was also a night to remember for Rovers’ youth team captain Scott Wharton, who was presented with the Young Player of the Year Award, Rovers’ Head of Sports Medicine Dave Fevre, who was named Clubman of the Year, and Lynda Shepherd, who picked up the inaugural Ladies Player of the Year Award.

The full first team, Under-21s and Under-18s squads turned out in force to support the popular end-of-season event, which was held in the Premier Suite at Ewood Park.

The players posed for photos and signed autographs, before the award-winning quartet took centre stage.
