Blackburn PR chief moves up to general manager

Blackburn Rovers have announced the appointment of their PR chief Paul Agnew as the club's new general manager. The 54-year-old will take up his new role, which includes a seat on the board of directors, next month.

Agnew said: "It is a great honour to be handed this opportunity and I will do all I can to help the club to grow and prosper.

"Suffering relegation last season obviously hurt everyone involved, but we must not get bogged down with what has been and gone.

"This is a time to regroup, look forward and concentrate our efforts only on aspects that we can affect and control."

Venkatesh Rao, of club owners Venky's, added: "We believe Paul is the ideal man to take on this challenging role with responsibilities across all areas.

"His love of Rovers is very clear and we have been most impressed with what we have seen and heard of him during our time at the club.

"He can count on our full backing and support and we are sure he will go on to prove a very successful appointment."
