Do you know someone who can be the next David Raya? Is there a youngster who looks like a real prospect when playing in goal in the back garden?

If so, why not get them down to open evenings with Rovers' first team Goalkeeping Coach Ben Benson?

At the beginning of last year, the club hosted a number of goalkeeping open evenings which were attended by 60 aspiring stoppers.

Ben was delighted to see those high attendance figures, with the 27-year-old hopeful of seeing youngsters come through to represent Rovers in years to come.

And we're doing the same again, with dates now revealed for the next batch of sessions with Ben.

Date: Friday 1st March
Age groupsUnder-8s to Under-11s
Venue: Senior Training Centre
Time: 6pm-6.50pm

Date: Friday 1st March
Age groups: Under-12s to Under-15s

Time: 7pm-8pm

Benson joined Rovers in 2015 and has been a factor in the development of number one Raya, and he hopes he'll see youngsters following in the footsteps of the Spanish stopper in future years.

"It was great to see so many goalkeepers in attendance last time out," Benson said.
"These events have been so well supported over the last few years and we look forward to hosting more goalkeepers during the month of March.

"As I always say, we place a lot of emphasis on these evenings and see them as a crucial part of our goalkeeping development pathway at Blackburn Rovers."
