Did that stained glass used to be in the glass shop across from Anaz Indian in Darwen?

Looks very familiar, was on display in the window for years?

That would have to be restored and you would be looking at a costly job.

I have always loved the Rovers crest. When I was maybe 8 or 9 girls in secondary school made club crest stickers by hand to sell to raise money for their school. The Rover crest was one of them. Something about it really stood out to me. The colours, the rose. Not sure exactly. I think it may be what got me supporting the club. Good timing in hindsight as that was around 93-94 :D 

You know the way some clubs have redesigned their crest? That would be an absolute red line for me.

Really struggling to understand you mate. If you struggle with punctuation can you separate sentences by starting a new line?

The only reason I mentioned it was because the club has had a love-hate relationship with this (independent) forum in the past.

I think you could be right Bazza. My lap top isn't that clear in that area of the photos.
