Rovers Greatest Supporter Remembered.


Recommended Posts

Seldom has one football supporter influenced a Football Club’s history to the point that he was and is still adored by his team’s supporters, not because of the money that he pumped into the club but because he was one of them, a working class supporter that brought their dreams alive. Jack Walker who had watched the Rovers from the terraces as a schoolboy, shared his dream of putting Rovers back on the football map with his fellow supporters, shedding tears of joy when his and their team lifted the Premier league championship in 1995 and tears of grief when Rovers was relegated in 1999.

Regrettably Uncle Jack as he became known to the fans, passed away on the 17th August 2000, missing Rovers full fill his promise of a return to the Premiership the following May.

Jack Walker may have put Rovers on a sound financial footing, but more than that he is remembered as Blackburn’s greatest supporter, who once said what every other supporter feels.

"If they don't win then I am bloody miserable on a Sunday."
