Blackburn Rovers update

Rovers can confirm that there happy with the start to the season so far. Third in the league after 3 matches is better than the team finished last season. McNamara has brought back Andrew Gale on loan and him and young Rinheart Yabo are making a strong partnership in the centre of the park. Nassic has returned to his club but McNamara has put in another loan request. He has also brought back Steffie Maviddadie who has previously had a spell at the club on loan and has gone for a couple of younger players who clubs are looking to let out for game time and experience. McNamara although happy is keen to add better depth to his squad plus improve the average age. Rovers also now have six players going through the youth Academy and hopefully they'll soon be ready for first team action. McNamara said the following.

"As the club I support it's vital to me that Blackburn do well. I am committed to really improving this side as much as possible, so far I am mainly focusing on loans and developing some youth players because I have not got the money to really compete in the market at this current moment in time. This club has got quite a lot of players getting older now so we're gradually trying to bring a younger feel to the team. It's not easy with very poor finances which is why currently we're focusing mainly on youth development and trying to improve our chances by bringing in talent. Also as I like to play 4-4-2 most of the time I have also put a few players threw extra training to change there positions to better suit the way we want to play. Once this has been achieved and some of these positions are changed there will be a few players going up for sail to see if we can raise some money.
