Player Profile: Andy Taylor

Full Name: Andrew Taylor
Date of Birth: 14th March 1986, Blackburn
Nationality: English
Position: Defender
Squad Number: 26
Internationals: Capped at under-19 & under-20 levels for England
Previous Clubs: Blackpool & Crewe Alexandra (both loan from Rovers)

Andy Taylor is a local lad who is yet another product of the successful Blackburn Rovers youth Academy.

Taylor, who is very highly rated by all connected to Rovers is more than comfortable anywhere along the back four although he usually occupies an indeed prefers a left-back position.

In order for the youngster to gain some first team experience in the 2005-2006 season Mark Hughes sent Taylor to Blackpool on loan in February 2006.

Having already been capped at under-19 and under-20 levels for England Taylor will be hoping to step up to the under-21's at some point in the future.

Taylor was given a squad number of 26 during the 2005-2006 season and although up to December of the 2006-2007 season he is still to make a senior appearance for Rovers he has featured in Squads, most notably the away leg with Salzburg in the first round of this seasons UEFA Cup so he'll me hoping to get his chance soon.

For more first team experience Taylor was sent out on loan again in October 2006, this time to Crewe Alexandra with the scheduled to end at the end of the year, although Rovers do have a recall clause in place. You don't get many better teachers than Dario Gradi so he'll learn even more from him with Crewe.

Taylor has been knocking around for a while now. A fine young talent but if his chance doesn't come this season after his return from the loan spell at Crewe not sure it will and he'll actively seek a move away from Ewood himself, which I WOULDN'T want to see.

Hey we could all see him if we watch Crewe! Or when he returns watch him in the reserves until he decides he's had enough and leave as is something I worry about!

One of our many problems, the young kids do not get a chance on the pitch. We dont have the finances to buy, buy and buy, and in these times of need, why not give our kids a go, why not give derbyshire, gallacher, peter, Taylor, McIlvey a go.

Probably for a reason you mention to a degree, finances. With so much money in the game trying young talent can be seen (crazy if you ask me) as a risk, with so much at stake, money wise a risk isn't wanted to be taken. This could make a good debate sasman, take it into the forum and start a thread!
