Hughes Full Of Praise For Derbyshire

Hughes Full Of Praise For Derbyshire

Blackburn Rovers strike sensation Matt Derbyshire (if this too much?!?!) has come in for yet more high praise recently, Rovers boss Mark Hughes feels he fully deserves it.

Derbyshire has made quite an impact this season, not only on the Rovers fans but also English football itself, the Premiership and especially this season's FA Cup not to mention the England under-21 side! Following his under-21 goalscoring debut last weekend he came in for yet more praise and Hughes feels it is nothing less than he deserves:

"He's had a fantastic start to his career. If the rest of his career is as meteoric as the opening to it, then he will have a great time ahead of him.

"We are delighted for him because he is a nice kid and everything he has achieved he's achieved through hard work and really being determined to make his mark as a football player.

"And when you work with some young men like that, who are really committed to being the best they can be, then it makes my job as a coach a hell of a lot easier.

"You draw a great deal of satisfaction when you see a young kid like Matt Derbyshire doing exceptionally well and making his mark in the game. You want those type of guys to do well because they deserve to do so."

It is almost a fairytale story for Derbyshire isn't it, from Great Harewood Town to working with Rovers. After signing he eventually forced his way into the first team squad (maybe earlier than expected due to injuries to others but you also need some luck) having previously gone out on loan when needed. Never once did he give up on the dream of playing for the club he loves, the club he supports. He is a true inspiration to any other youngsters out there. Sure, it doesn`t always work out but if you want something enough more often than not it will.

WHAT a season it has been for Derbyshire. We have to remember he only made his full debut for Rovers in December, but has gone from strength to strength ever since. I make no secret of my high regards for Derbyshire, and had been telling my brother and brother-in-law as much long before I started preaching about it on Vital Blackburn. I'm not doing a "told you so" as I know I am not the only one, but I'm delighted he has come through and is making the impact I knew he would. He will only get better and better which is the best thing of all!

I love the guy, think he's fantastic. REALLY, REALLY wanted him to be given a chance but it just wasn't coming, thankfully injuries (although I wouldn't wish injuries on anyone) gave him a break and man has he taken it! Get in there Derbs, keep doing what you are doing and PLEASE keep your FA Cup goalscoring run going against Chelsea in a couple of weeks!!!

Sometimes the only difference between a player with bags of potential and a top class player is knowing how to be at the right place & and at the right moment(And a bit of luck) Seems to me Derbs got it!

Derbs got his chance through a bit of luck (injuries to others) but more than deserves it as he's a quality footballer who has worked VERY hard for what's he's got.
