Rovers End of Season Awards
We had our highs and we had our lows during the 2006-2007 season, and now ALL the Vital Blackburn Rovers Awards for 2006-2007 have been dished out.
With YOUR help through your comments we have determined what had been best and worst in various areas during the 2006-2007 campaign.
The Awards up for grabs that people would WANT were, and were won by:
