Action Group making progress

Action Group making progress

The BRFC Action Group have been hard at work with two breakthroughs coming in the space of a day.

First off the group has been granted affiliation with the Football Supporters Federation which gives them more of a recognised and qualified presence amongst the footballing bodies.

Furthermore meetings have been agreed between the group and a government sports minister (with help from Jack Straw) and also with the Premier League who have agreed in principle to meet with the group to discuss the goings on at Rovers since the Venky's takeover.

statement from the BRFC Action Group committee which has been released has read - 'We as a group of supporters, elected by its members, are disgusted that our club has been allowed to be pillaged with very little resistance from the regulatory bodies who should act in the best interest of the sport and supporters.'

Adding to the statement was someone that you might recognise in the form of Group chairman and Vital Blackburn's very own Glen Mullan - 'This will give us an opportunity to put our case to the highest authorities and offer supporting evidence to why we feel that our club's activities has not been monitored at all, since the FA granted Venky's [status as] as fit and proper owners.

'This will include agent's roles during their ill-fated tenure and lack of administration structure at the club.'

Good work chaps and chappettes.
