Protests planned for Blackburn v Newcastle match
The Blackburn v Newcastle match is the target for protests on Monday afternoon.
The BRFC Action Group have released a statement detailing a number of ways in which supporters can help them protest against the running of their football club.
The main focus of course is the owners and Blackburn fans are asked to join a pre-match march from Blackburn Town Hall to the ground.
Then afterwards, the idea is to have a 30 minute sit-in protest.
At the moment Blackburn are in the relegation zone and three points adrift of safety.
BRFC Action Group Statement re Blackburn v Newcastle:
“The march will depart from Blackburn Town Hall at 1.15pm walking down Mincing Lane and along Bolton Road to Ewood Park.
“It is hoped that both boycotting fans and match day fans will march together, bringing banners and flags.
“At the full time whistle we ask supporters to hold a 30 minute sit in, within the Blackburn End stand.
“Fans from other stands are encouraged to re enter the stadium via the Blackburn End at full time.”
An earlier BRFC Action Group made clear, if it was needed, just why they are unhappy:
“After a torrid six years our beloved Rovers have nosedived from a respected mid-table and well run Premier League club, into a shambolic circus bereft of leadership, direction and hope.
“A club that now sits rooted in the relegation mire facing the drop into English footballs third tier for the first time in 40 years.
“Yes the supporters of Blackburn Rovers do have an agenda.
“This agenda is to have a well-run, transparent football club.
“One that sits proudly at the centre of the local community, one that we can feel connected with, part of and a club that operates by its motto of Arte Et Labore (By Skill and Hard Work).”
