Programme preview: Millwall (H)

A look at what's inside this weekend's matchday programme for the visit of The Lions

13 September 2019

Your new-look Rovers programme returns for our encounter against Millwall 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 clash against Neil Harris' side we sat down with Tony Gale. The defender appeared 15 times in total for Rovers in just over a season at Ewood Park, but certainly played his part in our successful season.

Tony reflects on that classic campaign and reveals all the secrets from that season to remember.

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

Our Big Interview sees us sit down with Darragh Lenihan, who could make his 150th club career game this weekend.

The Irishman discusses his thriving defensive partnership with countryman Derrick Williams, how he's welcomed another Irishman in Greg Cunningham, his hopes for the campaign for club and country and much more.

Amari'i Bell is next up for our Football Origins feature, looking back on his firsts and favourites, whilst John Buckley is up for our new In The Kitbag piece.

We open the history books to look back at a memorable match against The Lions, and also profile a Rover from our 1994-95 campaign in Graeme Le Saux.

We have Tony Mowbray's exclusive column and there's a tribute to a former player in Mike Ferguson, who sadly passed away at the end of last month.

Originally an inside forward, manager Jack Marshall converted Fergie into an outside right and he blossomed into a brilliant wing wizard.

A team-mate of Rovers legends Bryan Douglas and Ronnie Clayton, Ferguson spent six seasons at Ewood Park, making 249 appearances and scoring 36 goals. His superb solo effort in a 4-0 win at Aston Villa in September 1964 will live long in the memory.

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.

We get to know Under-23s midfielder Stefan Mols a little better, get the lowdown on Under-18s full back Dan Pike, and Ladies winger Lauren Davies tells us more about herself.

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