Club keep promise of gesture to supporter

Back in March, a Blackburn supporter travelled 5,500 miles to watch his club only to find it was called off.

The fan from California made the long journey from LA to Gillingham but discovered the disappointing news of the postponement due to snow.

The League One side noticed his tweet and decided to make a great gesture to him – which the fan was able to take up on before yesterday’s game against Peterborough.

It sounds and looks like the fan really had a great time before the game, where he even met the players and staff behind the scenes.

Well played Blackburn, Checkatrade’s Community Club of the Year for the North West!
