Getting to know.... Jason Lowe!

Getting to know.... Jason Lowe!
A couple of weeks ago I contacted a very talented up and coming footballer who has been attracting the interest of Stuart Pearce for the England U21's.

I asked whether he would be able to do a Q&A for Vital Blackburn Rovers. Due to the vast heat of Central America and a knackering work schedule he asked whether it would be okay to do it apon his return.

Well back in old Blighty, he has just got back to me on the hop and this is what he says...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1- How and when did you get spotted by Blackburn?

...Playing sunday league for Eastleigh Juniors...
