Today is the last chance for fans to bid on the commemorative coin that was used for Saturday's game against Rotherham United.

Rovers fans are being given the opportunity to bid for a commemorative coin which will form part of our Remembrance Day tribute this weekend.

The bespoke coin was used for the coin toss prior to Saturday's Championship draw against the Millers at Ewood Park.

The club have put it up for auction, along with a signed Rovers shirt, to raise valuable funds for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

This weekend marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and clubs across the country are uniting under the collective banner of 'Football Remembers' to mark the Armistice Centenary. 

Commemorative coins will be used at every Premier League, EFL and FA Cup match to pay tribute to those involved in the First World War and those who have served in conflicts since. 

To bid for the coin and signed poppy shirt, please email Remembrance2018@rovers.co.uk with your bid.

The deadline for bids is close of play on Monday November 12th.
