The canteen area of the club's Academy has been renamed The 100 Club Lounge as a thank you for the excellent support.

The 100 Club are shirt sponsors of the Under-18s side and raise money through events to help fund the Rovers Academy.

Formed in the 1970s, the 100 Club has been intrinsically linked to the football club for over 40 years, developing a close relationship with the Academy and supporting the club’s young stars of the future through a series of donations totalling over £250,000.

The latest addition to the Academy sees the canteen area now named The 100 Club Lounge in recognition of the fantastic support for the last 40+ years from the group.

And Academy Manager Stuart Jones was thrilled to highlight the excellent fundraising that is done by the organisation.

"The support we receive from the 100 Club every year is fantastic. We've been discussing what we can use donations for and we can't thank them enough.

"We're really proud to have their name for the room and it raises awareness of the 100 Club to the players and staff about the tremendous support they give us year in year out."

David Hembrough, Chairman of The 100 Club, added: "I'm very proud to be associated with the 100 Club and Blackburn Rovers.

"To assist Stuart and the boys through donations, we know they go a long way to helping things here down at the Academy.

"It strengthens the bond we have with the club and the Academy so it's really pleasing to keep growing the relationship."
