Blackburn Rovers F.C. History

Blackburn Rovers Football Club was founded in 1875 by Arthur Constantine and John Lewis. From the outset teh club made its mark by winning three consecutive FA Cup trophies between 1884 and 1886

Along with eleven other clubs, Blackburn were the founder members of the Football League in 1888. Two years later they made the move to Ewood Park. The move was followed up by claiming two additional FA Cups in 1890 and 1891.

Two First Division titles in 1912 and 1914 followed. The 1928 FA Cup victory would be Blackburn's last trophy for the next seven decades, and soon after they were relegated to the Second Division.

At the beginning of the 1990s Blackburn were still firmly in the Second Division. But their fortunes changed when the club was bought by local steel magnate Jack Walker; being an avid supporter of Blackburn since his childhood days, Walker had no problems with investing large sums of money in the club. Following the appointment of Kenny Dalglish as manager in 1991, Blackburn earned promotion just in time to join the newly-formed Premier League.

Back in the top flight Walker broke the English transfer record by paying 3.5 million pounds for Alan Shearer. Led by a partnership of Shearer and Chris Sutton which resulted in more than 50 goals between the two of them, Blackburn won the Premier League in 1995.

That Cinderella story was the end of Blackburn's time in the spotlight, however. The passing of Jack Walker in 2000 would mean that Blackburn no longer had the same economical strenght. With the championship team broken up even quicker than it was assembled, the club was relegated from the Premier League in 1999. In 2002, Blackburn won its last trophy by defeating Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the League Cup final.
