Blackburn Youth Zone were this week, absolutely delighted, to invite a very special guest into The Youth Zone: Alan Shearer.
Alan Shearer, of course, has a long history with Blackburn having played prolifically for Blackburn Rovers FC for five years. Shearer toured The Youth Zone during one of our busy ‘trial openings’ – allowing something of a sneak preview of the sort of atmosphere and energy we expect from The Youth Zone when we are fully open.
One of the day’s highlights was doubtlessly, Alan Shearer’s visit to the rooftop kickpitch. Shearer showed off his footballing skills and signed a few autographs before an impromptu chorus of ‘Shearer! Shearer!’ broke out.
