'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Host Of Youngsters Sign On

Blackburn Rovers are clearing out the deadwood (releasing two today) but players that we'll be hoping will be our future have all signed contracts today of varying lengths.

One of the most highly rated is Jack O'Connell. He impressed on loan with Rochdale last season with the 20-year-old defenders performances helping them to promotion from League Two into League One, over the next two-years (at least) he'll now be looking to stake a claim to be in Gary Bowyer's first-team.

Another youngster to sign a two-year contract was Modou Cham with Bradley Bauress, Kellen Daly, Darragh Lenihan and John O'Sullivan all signing contracts that will last for one-year with 18-year-old midfielder David Carson officially arriving today after a trial with Rovers last season, he's also signed a one-year contract.

Luke Varney's arrival on a free transfer was of course today also confirmed after his contract with Leeds United expired. I'm not personally that convinced by Varney and not sure if I would've given him a contract, however, I'll bow to Bowyer's judgement and trust this call.
