Your new-look Rovers programme returns tomorrow for our opening day encounter against Charlton Athletic 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 legend. Chris Sutton appeared 162 times in total in the blue-and-white, and was crucial to Rovers' triumph back in the early 90s.

The striker, who was part of the formidable front two that also featured Alan Shearer, discusses that campaign, the camaraderie in the camp and much more 25 years on from one of our greatest ever seasons.

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 striker in the form of Sam Gallagher, who steps up to the plate to discuss his return to the club and his first few weeks back in East Lancashire, as well as his future aims and ambitions.

We open the history books to look back at a memorable match against Lee Bowyer's side, 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.
