Blackburn Rovers Player Profiles

Posted 26th June 2014 at 09:28 am


A winger who is comfortable on either flank, Conway has made an immediate impression on the Rovers squad despite only joining during the 2014 January transfer window.

Signed from Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee, the Scottish international put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Conway started his footballing career at Ayr United, before moving to Dundee United in 2006. The midfielder would go on to make 166 appearances during a five-year spell at Tannadice, scoring on 16 occasions.

Fine form for Dundee United saw him gain international honours for Scotland - to date Conway has seven caps to his name.

June 2011 saw the wideman make the move south to Cardiff City, playing a key role as the Bluebirds gained promotion to the Premier League in 2012-13. However a lack of first team opportunities saw him join Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion on loan for three months at the beginning of last season.

Gary Bowyer moved to sign the wide man at the end of January and Conway would go on to be one of the standout performers in the second half of the season, scoring 4 goals and laying on 11 assists as Rovers just missed out on a top-six place.
