Blackburn Rovers chicken 'jailed' after pitch invasion

Blackburn Citizen: Blackburn Rovers chicken put in cells after pitch invasion Blackburn Rovers chicken put in cells after pitch invasion

A BLACKBURN Rovers supporter was put in cells by police after coming on to the pitch during Sunday’s East Lancashire derby against Burnley.

Although this fan was of the clucking variety, it certainly proved to be no chicken as it evaded capture for a good couple of minutes while referee Mike Dean looked on unamused.

Police were able to see the funny side, however, and uploaded this picture of the animal to their Twitter page. Writing alongside the picture, @RoversPolice said: “Let this be a warning; DO NOT go on the pitch #noescape.”

Who the clucking heck are you?
Didn't the stewards see him coming in?
Whose ticket did it use?
Don't give it a pie-it doesn't like gravy.
Rovers got basted.
Was it a Rhodes Island Blue?
Did the Dingles give it the bird?
Did the ref see the fowl?
It was good hentertainment.
