The 2013–14 season is Blackburn Rovers 126th season as a professional football club and its second playing in the Football League Championship since the club's relegation during the 2011-12 Barclays Premier League season.[1]

Caretaker for the final few games of the previous season, Gary Bowyer, was given the job permanently.

Grzegorz Sandomierski, Cameron Stewart, David Bentley, David Jones, Todd Kane and Colin Kazim-Richards, all of which were on loan at Rovers during the 12-13 season did not secure permanent contracts, though Todd Kane has returned to Rovers for a third loan spell. Mauro Formica and Diogo Rosado, who were both loaned out for the final half of the 12-13 season left the club during the summer transfer window, the former being sold and the latter having his contract terminated. Rubén Rochina and Bruno Ribeiro who were also loaned out towards the end of the 12-13 season have returned to the club and are part of the first team, though both are currently injured.

Fan favourite, David Dunn's future is now no longer uncertain, as talks over a new contract with his hometown club resulted in a one-year contract extension.[2] Grant Hanley and Lee Williamson have also gained contract extensions.

With this season being the second for Rovers in the Football League Championship, and a reported £2 million a month being lost through player wages, the club have been trying to move on higher earning players who's salaries don't match their number of appearances in an attempt to lighten the wage-bill in preparation for the Fair-Play rules which are to be introduced in the 14-15 season. With players such as Dickson Etuhu and Leon Best reported to be on as much as £35,000 a week, the club may cut their losses.[3]

Pre season[edit]

On 24 May 2013, Rovers owners Venkys rewarded Gary Bowyer's performance as 'Caretaker manager', and an impressive record with a 12-month contract as the club's manager.[4]

Bowyer wasted no time in adding to his team making a triple Free transfer signing of midfielder Chris Taylor (Millwall), midfielder Alan Judge (Notts County) and goalkeeper Simon Eastwood (Portsmouth), all of whom are joining the club after their contracts ran out with their clubs.[5] He further indictated that funds had been made available to him by the club's owners, and he would be making changes both incoming and outgoing before the start of the new season.[5]

On 4 June 2013, it was announced that the club had decided to release Micah Evans, Osayamen Osawe, Chris Dilo, Jamie Maclaren, Reece Hands, Peter Wylie, Ryan Humphreys and Danny Laverty at the ends of their contracts (30 June 2013).

The club had also confirmed that young players John O’Sullivan, Raheem Hanley, Hugo Fernandez, Will Beesley, Curtis Haley, Kellen Daly and Darragh Lenihan had all been offered new deals. All were due to be out of contract on 30 June 2013. Young goalkeeper Matty Urwin[6] and 1st team defender Grant Hanley[7] have also signed new contracts at the club.

On 7 June 2013 Operations Director Paul Agnew was fired by the club owners Venkys.[8]

On 10 June 2013, Blackburn Rovers installed Terry McPhillips as assistant manager and Tony Grant as first-team coach, while Carlisle United youth team coach Eric Kinder re-joins Rovers as head of the youth team.[9]

On 21 June 2013, Blackburn Rovers welcome back former player Craig Short who joins Gary Bowyer's backroom staff as first team coach.[10]

On 3 July, Blackburn Rovers announce new shirt sponsor as RFS (Regulatory Finance Solutions Ltd), a management consultancy business.[11]

Pre-season friendlies[edit]

Championship[edit]

Blackburn's game against Derby County was a fixture released early to mark the special 125th anniversary of the Football League.[12] Gary Bowyer's first game as manager would ironically be against a club he coached at previously before joining Rovers in 2005.
