Nicknamed ‘Rovers’ and ‘The Riversiders’, Blackburn have a rich history packed with honours. Six-time winners of the FA Cup, three-time winners of the First Division/Premier League and winners of the League Cup, they have achieved a great deal over the years.
In 1992, Rovers gained promotion to the new Premier League, just one year after being taken over by entrepreneur Jack Walker, who installed Kenny Dalglish as manager; in 1995, Blackburn became Premier League champions. However, four seasons later, the club were relegated, only to bounce back up to the top-flight two years later.
Their most recent triumph came in the 2002 League Cup Final, beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.
Derek Fazackerley currently holds the record for most league appearances, playing 596 times for Rovers. Simon Garner tops the all-time goalscoring charts, netting 194 goals in two spells with the club. Blackburn’s largest margin of victory came all the way back in 1884, defeating Rossendale United 11-0 in the first round of the FA Cup.
