Your new-look Rovers programme returns today for our encounter against Middlesbrough at Ewood Park.

A new season means new content, and this campaign we're aiming to interview every member of the 1994-95 Premier League-winning squad in every league issue.

For the opener we sat down with a real Rovers fvourite. Stuart Ripley was crucial to our Premier League victory and would go on to appear over 100 times in blue-and-white.

We sat down with the winger, who also played for Middlesbrough, to discuss what it was like to play for Boro, being in the same team as Tony Mowbray, and of course our greatest ever season, as well as much more 25 years on.

We also look back at what happened in the summer of 1994, before that memorable campaign began under Sir Kenny Dalglish.

Our Big Interview sees another ex-Boro winger in the form of Stewart Downing, who steps up to the plate to discuss his relationship with Jonathan Woodgate, his two spells with Boro and settling into life in East Lancashire following his summer switch.

Another former Boro man in Harry Chapman sits down for our Football Origins feature, looking back on his firsts and favourites, whilst Christian Walton is first up for our new In The Kitbag piece.

We open the history books to look back at a memorable match against Boro, and also profile a Rover from yesteryear.

In addition, there are updates for our Under-23s, Under-18s and Ladies teams as well as the usual pieces with the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust and news from around the club.

There's plenty more inside our publication, which costs just £3, and you can purchase yours from our programme sellers dotted around Ewood Park.
