Two of Rovers' biggest stars were sent back to school in this week's Premier League Primary Stars player appearance.

Fans favourites Bradley Dack and Corry Evans dropped by at the Redeemer Primary School, which is just a short journey from Ewood Park, as they delighted primary school children of all ages on Tuesday afternoon. 

The Rovers pair joined in with an athletics practical session, posed for pictures in a number of classes before attending a Q&A in a whole school assembly. 

It was Dack v Evans as they swapped the pitch for a running track. The session designed to compare sprinting techniques saw the duo take each other on in a tightly-contested race. 

Both then posed for many pictures as children and staff alike were desperate for their own moment with the Rovers stars. 

The day was finished off by the lads taking to the stage in a Q&A in front of nearly 200 children. The pair covered everything from how many goals they've scored to who the grumpiest player in the team is, to which Dack was only happy to talk about. 

"That's a tough one. I'd say Craig Conway. He's probably the most grumpy out of us, but we're a good group. We enjoy our football and we're happy for the most part." 

The children then asked Corry just what he thought of his colleague Dack. 

"He's defintely hyper. Dacky is funny, he's always playing pranks around the changing room. He's also a really good player, so I'll give him that." 

The duo delighted everyone at the Redeemer Primary School and made it an unforgettable afternoon for the children.
