Top scorer Danny Graham was the night’s big winner at the Blackburn Rovers Disabled Supporters’ Player of the Year Awards.

The 31-year-old striker, who has contributed 12 goals and six assists to the cause this season, scooped the top honour at the popular end-of-season party. 

Graham said: “I’m obviously delighted to receive the award, but it’s just a shame given the league position that we’re in. We’ve got two games left and we need to concentrate on them. Hopefully we can get the job done and this award will mean more if we’re safe than if we go down.

“As a striker you always want to score goals and I feel as though I should have scored more than I have this season, but I feel as though it’s a good return and hopefully I can get a few more in the last couple of games and keep us up.” 

It was also a night to remember for rising star Ryan Nyambe, who was presented with the Young Player of the Year Award, first team coach David Dunn, who picked up the Clubman of the Year Award for the second time in four years, and striker Saffron Jordan, who was named Rovers Ladies Player of the Year.

Manager Tony Mowbray, along with the full first team, Under-23s and Ladies squads turned out in force to support the sell-out event, which was held in the Premier Suite at Ewood Park and has become a firm fixture on the club’s social calendar.
