Blackburn Rovers Player Profiles

Posted 20th July 2015 at 02:09 pm


Rovers added highly-rated defender Tommy Spurr to their ranks in August 2013, arriving on a free transfer from Doncaster Rovers on an initial two-year deal.

A product of Sheffield Wednesday's Academy, Spurr would go onto make over 200 appearances for the Owls during his time at Hillsborough, before moving to fellow South Yorkshire club Doncaster in June 2011.

His first season at the Keepmoat Stadium saw Spurr feature regularly, but it was the 2012-13 campaign where he made the left-back spot his own, playing in all of Doncaster's games as they clinched promotion to the Championship in dramatic fashion on the final day.

Spurr started strongly at Rovers, his wholehearted displays at full back saw him quickly become a fans favourite.

After playing all but three games in the league, Spurr signed an additional one-year deal to extend his Ewood stay until the summer of 2016, but unfortunately for the defender a groin injury picked up during pre-season saw him sidelined for the majority of the 2014-15 campaign, only returning in the last two months of the season.

Now free from injury, he'll be eager to remain so to earn a place in the squad for the new season.
