Rovers Lose One of Our Own

Rovers Lose One of Our Own

It's a sad day when we lose anyone from the Blackburn Rovers family, however to lose a brave young lady at the tender age of 21 really puts things in perspective.

Emma (McDougall) Mincher today lost her long fighting battle against cancer. The cancer was a reoccurrence of the condition she bravely overcame at the age of 18. Emma leaves behind her loving husband and 2 children.

Emma joined Blackburn Rovers in 2008, making her debut in a 17-0 Lancashire Cup Tie victory. She managed to make 3 appearances for the Ladies top flight team in 2007/08 before making 20 appearances in 2008/09.

From all of us here at Vital Blackburn, we send our condolences to Stefan (Husband), children, friends and all family.

Hoorendous news, that is no time of life to be dying. Thoughts are with her family and friends.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
