Crystal Palace Aiming To Keep Marrow

Crystal Palace Aiming To Keep Marrow

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Alex Marrow shot to fame when he signed for Rovers after being spotted at a keepy-uppy competition in 2008.

Marrow isn't expected to have a long-term future at Ewood Park and hasn't made a first-team appearance for the club, spending last season on loan with Oldham Athletic. The midfielder is likely to end his Ewood career without playing for the club as it's expected that he'll be released by Sam Allardyce at the end of the season when his contract expires.

However, at the moment the 20-year-old is on loan with Crystal Palace and their manager George Burley is keen on extending his loan spell at Selhurst Park until the end of the season (at least), he might even try to sign him permanently if possible.

Burley told the Lancashire Telegraph: "A lot of those things will be decided in January. It will be down not just to myself but the player and their own club as well. Alex has certainly done very well for us so far though.

"He is very much a 100 per cent man no matter what position he plays.

"He is strong and quick and he has done really well for us.

"Midfield is his favourite position but he has shown how good he is at full back and centre half as well.
"

Marrow (who was awarded the Man of the Match for his performance against Queens Park Rangers last Saturday) sees his initial loan spell end on the 3rd of January 2011.

I am a big Rovers fan i go to some games when we play in the midlands as thats where i live. But i feel this will help out teams like Rovers out if the league was run like U.S. sports where there is a salary cap and all the tv revenue is shared equally it will have to be put in by the whole of FIFA

As it happens my uncle's a palace fan and I was at the game. Marrow looked solid at centre back in the first half. He then switched to centre mid for 2nd and was spraying a few nice balls about and looked a good reader of the game. I know it was only one game but I'd be gutted to see him sleep through the net!
