Rovers trio David Raya, Charlie Mulgrew and Bradley Dack have all been included in the EFL Team of the Season for Sky Bet League One following their fine performances throughout the campaign.
Goalkeeper Raya has 14 clean sheets to his name this season so far, whilst skipper Mulgrew has shown great leadership and defensive skills and has also weighed in with an impressive 12 goals from his centre back position.
Playmaker Dack has turned into a real fans’ favourite in his maiden campaign at Ewood Park and has played his part in Rovers’ surge to the top of the table with 16 goals so far this term and a plethora of assists for his team-mates.
Dack has also been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Season award for being consistently excellent throughout the campaign, and he’s up against Peterborough hitman Jack Marriott and Wigan’s Nick Powell for the top player prize in the division.
As a club, Rovers’ fine community work was recognised with the North West Community Club of the Year award back in early March and we have now been put forward alongside the five other regional winners for the 2018 Checkatrade Community Club of the Year Award.
Middlesbrough, Derby County, Charlton Athletic, Portsmouth and Bristol City make up the six clubs in the running for the gong.
The winners for all awards will be announced at the EFL Awards on Sunday 15th April in central London.
Congratulations David, Charlie and Bradley, and good luck to Brad for the main prize nomination!
