Rovers held a Supporters' Consultation Meeting at Ewood Park last week, with chief executive Steve Waggott, finance director Mike Cheston and first-team manager Tony Mowbray taking questions on various aspects of the club.

The main points from the meeting are as follows:

- The club are firmly focused on stability and sustainable growth on the back of a successful season both on and off the pitch, with Tony Mowbray receiving the full backing of the Owners.

- Fan engagement remains a key objective, with open and honest conversation encouraged between the club and its supporters.

- The fortunes of the first-team squad are a key commercial driver, and therefore the club is focused on giving Tony Mowbray the best possible platform for success with a competitive squad.

- Tony Mowbray hopes to add more players to his first-team squad during the summer transfer window, and is confident that “we can get the players we want.”

- A new senior management team will be put in place in the coming weeks, to ensure the club is as efficient as possible in 2018/19.

- The club is focused on improving the matchday experience for all fans, which includes the introduction of a new Fortress system. The club is also exploring matchday payment methods and Wi-Fi improvements.

- The club’s matchday programme will remain in operation for the foreseeable future, though its distribution will be reviewed ahead of the new season.

- The club has held positive talks with a number of potential kit sponsors and are hopeful of making an announcement regarding the new kits in the coming weeks.
