Tony Kane is once again a successful academy produce being part of the successful Blackburn Rovers side that won the national title at academy level.
Another highly rated youngster and defender at that, Kane operates within the academy and reserve teams as a full back.
Already capped at under-18 and under-19 levels for the Republic of Ireland now regularly at under-19 level, Kane seems certain to play a part in the full set-up in the not to distant future. His debut for the under-21's came on Wednesday 18th October 2006.
Towards the end of the 2005-2006 season Kane was awarded a first team squad number of 34 for the first time. He also signed a new two-year deal that will keep him at Ewood until at least 2008. Kane is still to feature in the Rovers first team but will be hoping to do so before in the coming seasons.
The youngster was sent out on loan to Stockport County during the early months of the 2006-2007 season, later joined by countryman Keith Treacy but was recalled in December 2006. During the January transfer window he joined our Belgian feeder club Cercle Brugge on loan until the summer of 2007.

Thanks to a couple of injuries Tony Kane was immediately dropped in Cercle's first team for their game against Zulte Waregem (a regional derby). Cercle won the derby 2-0 and the Northern Irish youngster was voted Man of the Match.
One week later Kane was in the starting line up again and struggling Cercle won again... 0-2 at Lierse.
This weekend (early March 2007) Kane played the full 90 minutes again but the team lost 0-2 at home to Standard.
