  1. BRFCS is delighted to announce that renowned Rovers historian & author Harry Berry (A Century of Soccer, The Blackburn Rovers Miscellany, The Men Who Made Blackburn Rovers since 1945) has given us access to his archive records of Rovers first team players. The initial batch of records representing players with surnames beginning with A have been loaded & can be accessed from the new Home Page &/or by following the link below :- https://www.brfcs.com/mb/index.php?/player-archive/ Our sincere thanks go to Harry for sharing this content, over time the record will build up to cover all players with a first team appearance but rather than wait until all the records are complete, we thought we would load them in instalments. Thanks also to @OnePhilT who once more has done a sterling job building the infrastructure to house these records and has single-handedly loaded this first batch of records. Hope you enjoy using this as a reference point for all your Rovers player enquiries...

    For absolute clarity, we are not aware of ANY initiative to change the badge... this guy does some interesting stuff though...

    The usual reason is commercial - establishing copyright over the new design & meaning that a load of new merchandise etc can be produced with the new badge e.g. Arsenal changing the direction of the cannon on their badge

    Coincidentally it was a question asked on Twitter earlier today by New York Rovers chaps...we were speculating about the potential for a change in the badge. I distinctly remembered the badge being around when I started going to Ewood (1969 ish) so I asked Fred Cumpstey who gave me the answer. The Google search confirmed Fred’s answer in that the programme cover changed for the 1967/8 season. i always thought it odd that the red rose badge appeared on the shirts but everywhere else used the roundel type badge...well at least until it appeared on the shirts. i also recall being quite excited to see a new kit with the new badge...oh how naive we all were in the 1980’s...no kit launches then...you just waited for the first home game & peeled your eyes πŸ˜†. The red & blue stripes suddenly appearing on the shorts for the legendary Feb 1975 game v Plymouth being a case in point...a kit change, mid-season...crazy times. πŸ™‚

    These are excellent...with 1 caveat...the halves need to be reversed on the back & if not halved sleeves, then the contrast should be at the front not the back, else πŸ‘ŒπŸ» oh yeah...white shorts πŸ˜‰

    They must have easily had > Β£500k of press, tv & radio coverage already...as a business proposition that is a return. I am no fan of gambling at all & PP even less but I have to doff my cap to their marketing team who have played a blinder.
