Alan Judge agrees deal with Rovers

Alan Judge agrees deal with Rovers
Alan Judge, along with Millwall winger Chris Taylor, has agreed a deal with Blackburn Rovers. He arrives on a free transfer and will sign officially on July the 1st.

Judge started his professional career at Rovers after being brought up through the youth ranks. He made his debut for the first team as a substitute in the League Cup against Grimsby Town in August 2008.

During the January transfer period of 2009, Judge was loaned out to Plymouth Argyle where he stayed for the remainder of the season.

Towards the end of the 2009-10 season, Judge was told by then manager Sam Allardyce that he was surplus to requirements.

Judge returned to Blackburn for the pre season before rejoining for Argyle on loan for the season of 2009-10.

Judge then enjoyed a six month loan stint at Notts County which was due to end in January 2011, the club re-signed him on an initial one month loan while a permanent deal was finalised.

His career statistics show 146 appearances and a tally of 21 goals.

The 24 year old is renowned for his energy on the pitch and his ability to score long range goals. His fans refer to him as 'The Irish Messi'.

Rovers look to be boosting their midfield after a poor season by agreeing deals with both Judge and Chris Taylor.

There will be those who whinge about us signing a player from a lower division on a free but I would rather have players who see a move to Rovers as a step up in their careers and who will bust a gut to gain a place in the team and keep it as opposed to those who think they have done it all and just have to appear on the pitch to take home a fat salary. Welcome back Alan Judge.

very interesting read on Venky's wikipidia page-encapsulates things since 2010 crash very well.

Nice to see us try a different path in bringing hungry players in. It's not going to be an easy transition to make and to many it'll seem like an underwhelming move... But I can see the merit in it.
