Skill school - Rebecca is top of the class!

12 April 2017

Pint-sized star Rebecca Hugill stole the show at Rovers’ keepy-uppy competition at Ewood Park.

Scores of young fans on their Easter holidays had turned up at the Roverstore to showcase their skills in front of Rovers stars Marvin Emnes and Lucas Joao.

But freestyle ace Rebecca soon became the main attraction, as she wowed the crowd - and Rovers’ attacking duo - with over 500 keepy-ups and some unbelievable tekkers!


The 11-year-old, who hails from Harrogate, walked away with a free 2017-18 season ticket after winning the Under-11 category, whilst 12-year-old Finley Wilson, from Lostock Hall, came out on top in the 12-17 age category.

Marvin and Lucas posed for photos, signed autographs and offered some moral support to the excited youngsters who took part. 

And there was a role reversal, as the pair asked for Rebecca’s autograph after her dazzling display!
