Blackburn Rovers dismiss Ewood Park Riverside Stand closure

Blackburn Citizen: Ewood Park Ewood Park

SAFETY inspectors and Blackburn Rovers have moved swiftly to squash rumours that Ewood Park’s Riverside Stand will be closed next season.

Fans on Facebook and other social media suggested the structure had failed its safety inspections and would have to shut.

Other rumours quickly swept the internet that the 4,000-seater stand would have to be replaced if the club was promoted to the Premiership, had only just met strict standards and was slowly subsiding into the adjacent River Darwen.

The Lancashire Telegraph contacted the club, the council which issues the safety certificates for Ewood Park, and the Sport Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA) which oversees the inspection and certification procedure.

They were all quick to rebut the claims.

A borough council spokesman said “The council can confirm that the club still holds a safety certificate after the ground passed its annual safety inspection six months ago.

“The council and the club regularly meet to ensure the safety of Ewood Park, and at the last such meeting held in March no concerns were raised.”

A Rovers spokesman said: “The rumours are totally unfounded and the Riverside stand will be open as normal next season.”

He stressed there were no plans to replace it and no evidence of subsidence.

Rick Ryder, the SGSA inspector responsible for Ewood Park, said: “I am confident that the council are conducting their safety inspection and certification procedures correctly.”

The stand was completed in 1913 with 2,944 seats and a large terrace at the front.

In 1988 the original structure was replaced by a new stand, having failed a safety check in the aftermath of the Bradford City fire.

Further development took place in the 1990s.

We could do with a new stand at riverside matching those three modern stands built by late Jack Walker in the 1990s.
Venkys did say they want replace it but the Rovers fans have deserted the place with gates only averaging around 15,000.

It needs replacing with an asbestos and rusty steel structure and fitting out with 70 year old wooden seats, any body know where we could find a stand like that?

Before you start crowing just wait until you start getting stuffed out of sight every game next season and the away fans totally outnumber what's left of the home fans, like last time.

Panic over. Apparently the stand would only need to be replaced if the club were to be promoted to the Premier League. Slim chance of that happening this side of the next ice age.

You fcuking IDIOT! Have you been on Turd Moor recently? Have you fcuk! It's a death trap, and I'm amazed that it's actually got a safety certificate. Will any work be done on that pile of sheeite before next season? It needs it. There can't be many grounds left in the country that has wooden seats. I'm just glad that smoking has been banned in such places, otherwise we could have another disaster on our hands.

I'd love to say that loads of Dingles are now jumping on the bandwagon but that's clearly not the case. You've just had your best ever season that I can certainly ever remember you having and your attendances are still poor. We're having one of the worst seasons in my living memory and we're still averaging over 1200 more fans. For years, the Dingles harped on about how many more fans they would have if they were above us. Well now it's happening, and you still can't match us.

Best thing Venkys can do is sell this loss making club or if they can't buy a buyer sell all the assets and go back to Pune India where there are 80 million football fans in central and eastern part of India.
India will have a new IPL Football league just like cricket and Venkys are loved in India for being thilanthrophist giving money for foodbanks and hospital for the poor in Pune and other parts of India.
The thugs have won here and Venkys are hated in Blackburn and Venkys cannot even visit Ewood Park the Club they own.
By the way i am not m.daany ,super clarets or champagne charlie mr harwood blue and stone island ?

"The stand was completed in 1913 with 2,944 seats and a large terrace at the front. "

State of the art, then.

4, 000 seater stand??? That will be your average home gate before long when the mid Lancs glory hunters you attracted when Walker bought the league scuttle off back to Bolton and Preston.
Have you been a **** for all your life or has this just taken over your sad life , put a pig in to a stable it will never become a horse , yet put the Dingles in to the premiership they will always be Dingles , can't Waite for next season .
So you can't 'Waite' (sic) for next season can you? Why? You want to watch a proper team compete in the league you can only dream about playing in?

Do you realise just how embarrassing it is that your best banter is that you can't wait to watch Burnley in the Premier League?

Enjoy Brentford you banter-free losers - I hope Reading get a point against Burnley on Saturday and THAT is what stops you getting into the play-offs. Now THAT would be funny.

Before you start crowing just wait until you start getting stuffed out of sight every game next season and the away fans totally outnumber what's left of the home fans, like last time.
Suppose you mean similar to the rovers having won just 16 out of 44 played and this is only in the championship never mind the premier - you do talk some crap!!
Out with the cowboys and indisns
Oh look Dingle Dave siding with the Dingles. .. who would have guessed?

Out with multiple personality disorder Rovers obsessed Daves.. I mean Dingles.

Your club is a mid-table laughingstock, your manager is clueless, your ground is a deathtrap, and FFP cannot be wished away unfortunately, for the simple reason that clubs have been preparing for the new rules for two years now and with the exception of one or two jumped up nobodies such as Blackburn Rovers most have now cut their cloth accordingly and risked their league positions in the progress. The compensation payout demanded by the compliant clubs would be astronomical. Hence its safe to say little old desperate Blackburn Rovers are now and will remain 100% donald ducked.

Panic over. Apparently the stand would only need to be replaced if the club were to be promoted to the Premier League. Slim chance of that happening this side of the next ice age.
Bet you were accyriverside a few seasons ago.. *cough* glory hunter *cough*
