Blackburn Rovers can confirm that Directors Alan Myers and Mike Cheston will take up a dual role to cover the duties of the departed Managing Director.

The club have no plans to bring in a new MD at this stage, with the two men working closely with manager Paul Lambert and India-based Director Ghandi Babu. Robert Coar is also a non-executive member of the Board of Directors.
Mr Myers said: “Now is a time for unity and to focus on moving the club forward. There is a fantastic staff at the football club and together with the supporters our goal is clear.
“We have a manager who is determined to take this club to where it should be and it is our job now to support him and create the best conditions for him to achieve that.
“I appreciate the Owners giving me this opportunity. There is a real sense of togetherness within the coaching staff and the players and that bodes well for the future.
“The tremendous backing we receive from the fans both at home and away can not be underestimated and your continued support will be crucial. As such, we are delighted to announce reduced ticket prices for our upcoming FA Cup fifth round tie, of just £20 for adults, £12 for concessions and £5 for juniors.”   
Finance Director Mike Cheston added: “I’m excited by the challenge ahead. It is a terrific opportunity to be a part of something special.
“Alan and I have worked together for a good while now and I’m looking forward to continuing that.”
