VIDEO: Fan woken up before missing stop on train back from Blackburn’s pre-season friendly at Barrow

Sleeping after trip to National League side.


A Blackburn Rovers fan almost missed his stop on the train after a 2-1 win at Barrow but was woken up just in time.

The Championship side visited Holker Street, at the end of the Furness Line, for a friendly match on Saturday.


It was a sunny pre-season afternoon that was tiring for many supporters, including one who was videoed asleep as they pulled into Silverdale station.

Although his fellow passengers briefly continue to watch the bloke snooze, they do eventually wake him up before the train leaves.


The group apparently know where he is supposed to get off.

The Blackburn fan soon realises where he is and hurries away without so much as a thank you.
